Hi!! Thank you, that’s nice :D
Ah sorry, I don’t make gifs. I could do a picspam ish thing, but I think that’s not what you’re looking for, right? You could try and send a request to littlelambsarelovely, it’s a 10th Kingdom gifs blog. While it’s been dormant, maybe a message would wake it up (like a true love’s kiss!).
I’m sorry again ^^’
I am putting this under a Read More, because it is long and there are spoilers (a good amount of my followers have probably never watched this mini-series, so I’d like to ensure they enjoy the story spoiler free! :)
The 10th Kingdom (2000)
I’ve started re-watching The 10th Kingdom (I’m only about two hours into it). I re-watch this mini-series once a year, and I hadn’t done so yet, but really wanted to, so I knew now was the right time to go about it. It is a long mini-series, 7 hours if you watch every episode back-to-back (I’ve done so numerous amounts of times), but I highly recommend watching it! You can find the whole mini-series up on Veoh. Each video is about an hour long and covers all, or most of, one arc of the mini-series (there are about eight arcs all together).
Before I prattle on about it, here is a brief summary of the plot (taken from the Wikipedia page - warning: there are major spoilers on the wiki page.):
I love The 10th Kingdom to bits, because it is everything that a fairytale retelling should be. It can be corny and cheesy at times, but also deliciously dark and sharp witted. It bases its fairytale retellings on the darker Grimm Fairytale versions, rather than Disney, and covers a variety of topics (useless and/or corrupt politics, discrimination, abuse, drugs, addiction, and so on) that really help to grow and develop all of the major characters. These elements also help to create a well - developed world that nearly feels real because of how richly in-detail the series goes into describing aspects of society (pollution being caused by the out-of-control growth of beanstalks, giants going extinct, etc. etc.). It does so while also cleverly incorporating many fairytale elements and references (there are far too many examples to count!).
The music, settings, and even the CGI (this mini-series came out in 2000, roughly 14 years ago!) holds up fairly well (like, some of the CGI for The 10th Kingdom is probably even better than some of the CGI I’ve seen in Once Upon A Time).
I could go on forever about this mini-series (really, I could!), but I’m going to end here by saying that this mini-series really brought a whole world to life, and once the story gets rolling, it really sucks you in. I highly recommend it to all of my followers! <3
To get a bit of a feel for the series, you can watch the opening sequence here. (Also, for those who love reading, which I know is basically all of Tumblr, there was also a novel version that came out. The novel, from what I can remember, had some small differences and variations from the mini-series).
No…they’re in the green border for me, no worries here.
noo, it’s still the old one
Nope, I see it right (a large green bar, like the lateral one with the world “Welcoming tale”).
Still has the huge header and all the menu items are in one green bar instead of separated.
Not to me; all the links are in a solid bar across the bottom of the swamp image.
Ok, so it’s probably something on my side. If you all see it fine, I won’t bother much with it. Thanks for the replies!
Can you guys tell me if the navigation bar is looking like this to you?
