New Show Recap: Wolf Hall, Episode One, “Three Card Trick”

Happy almost weekend! I’ll be recapping the American broadcast of Wolf Hall on PBS’s Masterpiece over the next few weeks, and I’m really looking forward to it. For those of you who don’t know, the series is based on Hilary Mantel’s novel of the same name and tells the story of Henry VIII, his break with the Catholic Church, and his marriage to Anne Boleyn through the eyes of Thomas Cromwell. This series features an all-star cast and one of the best portrayals of Henry VIII that I have seen to date. Read More New Show Recap: Wolf Hall, Episode One, “Three Card Trick”

Pilot

Angela is late to the airport, and the arrivals board is broken. She’s waiting for someone coming in from Guatemala. The counter attendant won’t help her, so the flashes him to get some attention. “Please tell me you tried “˜excuse me’ first,” comes a voice from behind her and it’s the person she’s waiting on: Dr. Temperance Brennan. Brennan and Angela catch up and info-dump about how she went to Guatemala to escape a bad breakup.
