    Default Beau Brummell: This Charming Man on BBC America!

    I was just flipping through the channels and had to stop when I saw this: a drama about Beau Brummell! It's on the BBC America and it seems to be a drama about his life in society. Has anyone scene this?

    Cheers,

    The Greekonomist

    Ha! I was doing the same and watched it through. I bet myself that someone would raise it here. Interesting. The show seemed to portray his life as a metaphor for fashion - in one day, and out the next! He certainly simplified the general style of the day, though....anything to get away from powdered wigs and encourage more bathing!

    I was just thinking about mentioning it here. TBIT-Thank Beau for Trousers-breeches seem like they would be very hot

    SilkAscot might disagree, though.

    He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice.

    Default Worth watching..

    ..but not a classic.
    My fave scene is the fight in the street between the Fops and the Dandys.
