The Scarlet Pimpernel

I hadn't expected the first episode to span 90 minutes. What a treat! Even though my stomach was rumbling by midpoint, I couldn't stop watching. Tell me again why it wasn't named "Chauvelin" rather than "The Scarlet Pimpernel"? Unintentional or otherwise, MS stole the show. And I'm actually really enjoying the story; having read the book many years ago, and being bored silly by it, I didn't expect to enjoy anything other than MS' performance. But even if he wasn't in the rest of the eps I'd still watch it.
Bonus points if he is, though.
