Well, it cán be done right. At least, personally I really enjoyed the modern day Great Expectations with Gwyneth Paltrow.

But The CW is the very LAST network I'd expect to do it right. Or to do anything right, really.

Gina, your latest article for "Femnista" was marvelous on so many levels but especially because I love C.S. Lewis and have often pondered reading "The Question of God." Now I will plus I'm wishing that play would come into my state so I could go see it. That sounds like an amazing experience.

You know, I had a thought on what's prompting the idea of these "modernized twists" on GE - I bet you anything it's the success of Revenge, which was marketed as a modernized twist on The Count of Monte Cristo. Networks must be casting around for other well-known "great works" to lend a touch of class to their new soaps.
