I will also review Poldark season 2, but for now, I will review the first season of Poldark.
We are watching it right now, for the second time. My grandparents have lent the first season from their library and wanted to watch it for a very long time. So, here we are, watching Poldark again.
Sadly, it is almost over again. It has 8 episodes, which is very short.
It is set in 1780s in Cornwall, which absolutely an gorgeous location which I must visit one day. Ross Poldark returns from the American War of Independence to find his father dead, his house in ruins and his sweetheart is engaged to his cousin.
Finding out that his sweetheart is engaged with his cousin, breaks Ross heart and isn't the old Ross anymore. He assumed after he returned from the war, Elizabeth, his sweetheart, still be there, waiting for him to get back. Instead she gets on with her life and is to be married to his cousin, which name is Francis.
Now, Francis is a horrible person. When we first saw Poldark, my mind about him was very quick to judge. It changed through out season 2. He marries Elizabeth, but struggles by the idea Elizabeth is still loving Ross. Elizabeth claims she doesn't love Ross anymore, but Francis still doesn't believe in her. Instead, he gambles his mine, often visit the Red Lion and break any contact with Ross.

In a dog fight. A very strange meeting, I can assure you. Ross is thinking she is a girl, but instead she is a woman. Okay, at the first beginning she looks actually like a kid, but that changed. Happily. She used to wear her brother's clothing, to escape her father. And then she becomes Ross his servant, which becomes a romance.

Ross and Demelza are getting married in episode 3, which is lovely. I love them as a couple. There are coming a lot of difficult things in their marriage, but it always, mostly, ends good.
And then we have Jud and Prudie, which are the funniest and laziest couple of Poldark. They where good friends of Ross his father, but they took advantage of his death, living in his house and leave it dirty and not cleaned. Then Ross returns and they have to work for him. Which displease them.
Like Jud would say: ''T'int fit, T'int right, T'int fair, T'int proper.''
