You Won't Be Disappointed. “Masterpiece Classic: Great Expectations” SUNDAYS at 8p

Are you on the edge of your seat waiting for the next season of Downton Abbey? I am right there with you!  But while waiting for Season 3, PBS doesn’t disappoint.  Get ready for a wild ride of love, obsession and forgiveness as PBS introduces a brand new GREAT EXPECTATIONS on MASTERPIECE.

I was absolutely drawn into the program preview. The beautiful, mysterious Gillian Anderson plays the starring role as the manipulative Miss Havisham. Great Expectations is a Charles Dickens’ tale of rags to riches to self-knowledge.  This most familiar story — an orphan boy meets an escaped convict, a crazed rich woman, a bewitching girl, and grows up to have great expectations of wealth from a mysterious patron — appropriately airs during the bicentennial of Dickens’ birth, and this marks the fifteenth MASTERPIECE adaptation of the great novelist's works.
Tune in on Sundays at 8p or set your DVR because I guarantee you don’t want to miss this.  Time and time again, MASTERPIECE continues to set the bar.
