Howards End TV series, the BBC One's adaptation of EM Forster's Howards End book started out pretty good. Howards End feels so fresh, contemporary and relevant despite the costumes and formalities of the Edwardian setting. Seems like the decision to have the American writer Kenneth Lonergan adapting the series paid off. The clarity of his approach seemed unencumbered by preconception of the novel and his analysis of the shifts of British class and society.
