A while back I heard about the BBC series Aristocrats. I was excited to find that I was able to see the first episode on the web. You can see it on youku.com, a Japanese or Chinese (not sure which) movie sight, similar to youtube. The fist episode can be seen here:


  1. I can't wait to get home because I JUST ordered this through netflix this week and it should be there when I get home!!! But I have to wait to finish it because its on 3 discs!!!

  2. Thanks for this post, I am always on the look out for 18th century movies.
    Regards, Le Loup.

  3. You are welcome Le Loup. I should wanr you, I found out that for what ever reason episodes 2 & 3 are blocked. All of the others seem to work. However be prepared to have some patience if you plan to watch from there. For some reason it is hiccuppy (is that a word? LOL!) It lags for a few seconds every few minutes. If you can get thru it, I found it to be a rather good series. =)

  4. I envy you Jossilynn. I only watch movies at work on my lunch break as my wife is not a big movie fan. So I watch what I can at work. =) I thought the series was well done. I especially liked the dialogue. I thought they did a fine job of keeping the vocabulary in the feel of the time w/o making it tough to follow or difficult to understand. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Thanks for the comment.
