All of us miserable

Season Three, Episode Four Recap

I'll get to work on the recap as soon as I find my glasses

Are you ready to read our review of Episode Four?  It's right here.  The links to the first three episodes are over there, too.

If you watched, you know that this episode was pretty grim.  We started late and typed back and forth  all weekend to come up with something.  Let me know what you think!  Lillian is back in school and busier now but we plan to start cooking on Episode Five starting tomorrow.

For those of you watching DA on PBS in the US--there is a pivotal scene that didn't appear  on the UK version.  Daisy travels up to Mr Mason's farm and asks him how he'd feel if she ever got married again.  He gave her his blessing and assured her that William would also have wanted her to be happy.  Didn't you wonder about that too?  I don't know why PBS included it and the UK didn't--but keep it in mind when you watch Episode Six!

I'm off to bed to dream about carbohydrates--this week I cut down to less than one hundred grams of carbohydrates per day, with as much protein as I can eat--I've lost a pound already and would love to drop at least ten more, if I can.  Aside from a mild transient headache (ketosis) and recurrent fantasies of chocolate and bread, it's not too bad!  It goes against conventional low-fat /high-vegetables wisdom, but I've been doing that with no success for a long time and the scale will not budge.  What do I have to lose except my spare tire? I'll post my progress, if there continues to be any.

See you next week!
