Better than Cinderella!!!!!!!!
19 May 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This review is based on subtitle version of first season and dub version of second season. Its the first series that I saw with English subtitles and I never have thought that I would gonna like it this much. The story was excellent, characters were exceptional, screenplay and dialogues were outstanding. I really like the character of William Jones. It was just like the story of Cinderella where a rich man falls in love with a maid, but with a different point of view. One of the main reason I like it was the era and the manner of how British peoples converse with each other. The role of Emma was also a delighted one. I have never seen such character in my life. I will give this series a full marks.
