Milz July 6, 2015 Share July 6, 2015 Not nit-picky but a personal observation, when Ross's uncle said the phrase 'bite the dust.' my first thought 'thought that was an American expression, more from cowboy and western movies.' But looking it up I see it goes all the way back to 1750. *************** Poor Francis. That scene where he tries to have some face time with his mine workers was just painful. *************** Is it just cause they were the old servants of his father? Otherwise, can't see why Ross would still be employing the pretty useless Jud and Prudy. I liked how Ross phrased Jim's medical state as a "chronic lung condition"...because I guess calling it tuberculosis is over the heads of 99.9% of the viewers. *roll eyes* The Paynters knew Ross' father. What's not discussed is that working in the mines is more lucrative than working as a field hand or servant. So this is a case of good help is hard to find. I was just reminded of a WTF??? moment. When Ross goes to Truro for Jim's trial, Dr. Choake is there in the gallery. WTF is Choake doing there (other than a plot devise for Ross to get a Doctor's note for Jim)? Also since Choake was there in court, he could have testified himself, rather than Ross spewing hearsay. WTF Robin Ellis didn't tell Ross he won't accept hearsay? 1 Link to comment
