~Poldark review update~

Now Poldark season 2 is over(for us, we will finish it this night), it is time to have an update on the season 1 review. It seems only fair to do so, after some characters changed a bit, or really changed.



Demelza Poldark.

Well, Demelza is still the same. Although she now stands up for herself more, but made one mistake. Won't tell what it is, because that's a spoiler, and I will not tell any spoilers about season 2. But she is still the same.



Ross Poldark.

Is this the same picture I used for Ross in season 1? Maybe. Ross has changed. He previously did not appreciate Demelza as much as he ought to, but now he barely notices her. Maybe that's exaggerated, but I do think he does. He doesn't inform her of certain things, doesn't appreciate what she's doing for the house, and their son (sorry for that spoiler, but you probably already knew), and for him. I actually do not like Ross that much. Especially after...something he did, I just wanted to punch him(Demelza did it for me). I did feel sorry for him when Demelza said that George was better than himself. I mean, he did stupid things, but to compare him with his biggest enemy, and say that he is the lesser man is a bit harsh, don't you think? Never the less, I liked him more in season 1.


Francis Poldark.

Now, there is a man that changed. You know, he's the kinda person who is the like-dislike man. At first, I liked him, then not, then he became agreeable, then he did something I did not like(but he put himself off that idea), then I liked him. He became a good father, a good husband, and a good cousin. He encouraged Demelza, said that Ross chose the good woman to be Ross' wife, that there was just one fault about her, that she thought too less of herself, when she said she was not the good wife for Ross. He did a good job in the mine, took care of his family members, forgave Captain Blamey (which made Verity so happy), finally said to George what he was supposed to say a while ago. But then...you'll know what happened then if you saw season 2.


Elizabeth Poldark.

Okay, I must admit that my thoughts of Elizabeth moved towards liking her, first. But then not anymore. Now, I don't even feel sorry for her anymore. I just don't like her, that's all. She does think of her family, and what's the best for them, but leave Ross and Demelza alone for a minute, will you? Or say to Ross that he should not come by so often (poor Demelza). Anyway, I don't like her  (I know, said that a million times already, but I just don't like her)


George Warleggan.

And there we have him again. The slickery, annoying George whose plans always work. I really do not like him, he is so annoying and always makes things so bad for Ross and Demelza. Nothing to say about him more.


Caroline Penvenen.

Caroline Penvenen is a new character in Poldark. She is...she is...I don't like her that much, but she's okay. Short character review, I know, but I can't really put my finger on my opinion of her.


Dwight Enys.

We already know Dwight. He is doctor, helps the poor without asking for money, and so now and then helps the richer people. He is a good friend of Ross and Demelza, and a faithful one. He even warned Ross for the soldiers. I also don't have much to say about him, sorry.


Aunt Agatha.

She is a bit the Violet Grantham of Poldark. She pretends she is a bit deaf, she won't hear when people speak normal. So when George Warleggan says something, when he thinks she can't hear him, she just hears all he says. She loves when Verity comes visiting, but hates George Warleggan.




Also Jud and Prudie Paynter come along again (those two...they always make you laugh), and some other characters like Captain McNeill(blegh) and Jeremy(Demelza and Ross' son). Geoffrey Charles of course(he is the son of Francis and Elizabeth, might you not know), Caroline's uncle, Captain Henshawe, and the villagers. Season 2 was still a success here. The soundtracks are still beautiful...the serie is still good. See you again when season 3 is watched(which will take a very very long time, sadly).

  1. Loved this review Ruth! Yes! Tonight the last episode of Poldark season 2, can't wait to see the end.

    Poor Demelza! I really can imagine how it is to have a husband as Ross.
    Ross changed a lot. I actually begin to dislike him.

    I DON'T like Elizabeth, I didn't liked her in season 1, but she changed a LOT in season 2. A LOT.

    Ugh, George. I don't like him either, though he is a good villain.

    Francis! I really like him now, he is so kind and he changed a lot. I actually don't like what was happened with him. :(

    Can not wait until season 3 of Poldark!!!

    1. Thank you! Yes, couldn't wait either! Now it is over :(
      I felt so so soryy for her. Yeah, me too! I really began to dislike him.
      Yes, a lot, for the worse. First not, of course, but later when Francis...you know...
      He is a good villain, but villains are never nice. That's why no one can like him. (With his stupid fighting lessons)
      Me neither! It's so stupid that that happened! I mean, why? He is one of the characters I like why did they do that? I suppose he had to,because that makes the story more interesting. But didn't like it none the less.
      Oh, when will it come, I wonder? We will have to wait *Sigh*
