    I mentioned a 5-part adaptation of Tom Jones that is very good. The first installment is here at Youtube, and the other 4 can be easily located:

    An interesting element of this version is the inclusion of "Henry Fielding" as the on-screen introducer and occasional commenter...

    Sorry. A work conflict came up. I won't make it, but the books coming up all sound great, so I hope to make some of those.

    FYI to everyone, this location is an outside area. The meeting space is open to the elements. Who knows what weather late September will bring.
