Anno 1790: fangirling Märta Raxelius

I have just finished watching the SVT miniseries Anno 1790 and despite some of the first episodes being fairly dull and most of the costumes being far too old fashioned to be worn in in the 1790s, I thoroughly enjoyed it. (For a short summary, see my earlier post.)

My favourite character must be the incorruptible cross-dressing revolutionary Märta Raxelius, and while watching the miniseries I compulsively screen-capped her to have all her outfits copied. I'm not sure if this is of any massive interest as the series, although just released on DVD, does not come with English subtitles, but here's a picspam for your viewing pleasure anyway, although be warned that it is spoiler heavy (concerning the fate of this particular character, not the sub plots of each episode or sub plots relating to other characters.)

Edit 31.3: added a few more screencaps.

It's incredibly annoying that there are no subtitles to be found! I found some online for the first episode but it seemed like a really bad translation as it was translated by some random person... Stupid Swedish people, hmpf.

Re Eng subs...

Sorry to butt in but have you seen these: http://fi.podnapisi.net/fi/anno-1790-2011-subtitles-p1483106 ? Don't know about quality but they seem to have all the episodes.

Thank you! That's the same I've found only this has the complete set of subtitles for all the episodes, yay. The translation is very basic and even omits some sentences but it is timed correctly - and bad subtitles are better than no subtitles, anyway ;)

You are welcome! I've been contemplating of getting the DVDs.... only, I'm not sure I'd actually have time to watch it. Too many shows on my plate as it is. :) Oh well, maybe I'll just save it for later. Whenever that may be, heh.

Thank you! Must add this show to my list of things to watch this summer, questionable subtitles or no...
