I've come across a horribly fantastic show that so happens to run on PBS. It's called "Tess of the D'Ubervilles" and it's romantic and silly, and really fun to watch. You can see the first episode here. I'm warning you though - you'll be hooked.
UPDATE: I watched both of the episodes that make up this mini series and they need to come with a warning - Only watch it if you need a good cry!!!
