Affairs of the Heart: Series One (review)

29 October 2008 1:52 PM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

They don’t make TV series like this one anymore. No, literally, they don’t. Affairs of the Heart, the first series of which has just been released on DVD, is an anthology, not just a different story every week but different characters, too. True, these seven one-hour episodes -- produced for British TV in 1974, they aired on American TV in the early 1980s -- are connected via their source material, the fiction of Henry James, but it’s hard to imagine anything like this being produced today. I’m not sure, either, now that we’re used to big, sprawling epic adaptations of novels, whether a one-hour distillation of an entire novel would be welcomed by viewers. Indeed, these are a bit of a mixed bag: some work better than others. »
