I saw this quite by chance last week - June 2008 on TV and taped some of it. I thought it was fabulous. I just loved it from start to finish so much so that I have now bought both the DVD and VHS from Amazon. I just wanted to time travel back and be right there with them. A wonderful story from start to finish especially since the 1700's has always been a favourite time - my first stop if I had a time machine. I doubt if I would come back to the (21st century) again. The story was charming and the chemistry between them all was magical. Such charming gentlemen and who would not wish to be in their company. Magic! I cannot wait to receive the DVD and VHS tape.
