But what makes Lister's true-to-life tale particularly significant is how the globe-trotting, openly lesbian landowner manages to assert herself-from her rights to her sexual needs-at a time when women aren't even allowed to vote. After all, women's suffrage in the United Kingdom was only approved in some 78 years after Lister's death. Set in quickly evolving Halifax during the Industrial Revolution, the period drama shows how the year-old "fella in a frock" struggles to turn around the dwindling fortunes of her family's coal mines. Thereafter, she reinvigorates Shibden Hall, her faded ancestral home, by setting her sights on marrying well-but, to her conservative community's horror, not to a man! The object of Lister's romantic affection is year-old Ann Walker Sophie Rundle , a painfully shy and psychologically fragile manufacturing heiress who is being pressured by "well-meaning" friends and family members to accept the marriage proposal of clergyman Thomas Ainsworth Brendan Patricks , a widower who uses his boy-next-door charm to conceal his predatory impulses. Ainsworth's fortune-hunting boldness isn't Lister's only source of grief and distraction: She learns that her fierce business rivals, brothers Christopher Vincent Franklin and Jeremiah Rawson Shaun Dooley , have been stealing from her coal mines in her absence.

She meets Jules, who's new in town, at a party at McKay's house. Nate and Maddy, who have broken up once again, attempt to make each other jealous. Meanwhile, Kat is pressured to lose something. If you don't want to spend 20 minutes wondering where you know Nate from, know that it's probably Netflix's The Kissing Booth. There's also quite a bit of nudity, but it's HBO so that's par for the course.

Julia Davis , the English comedian, actor, writer and director who created the original and better version of Camping , brings a new cringe-comedy fest to HBO with Sally4Ever and it needs to be your new Brit-com obsession. In it, Davis plays Emma, a gorgeous, charming and free-spirited lesbian who meets Sally Catherine Shepherd — a bit of a sad sack woman who's become an old lady way too soon. Sally, plain hair, boring job, no social life and smothering parents, is co-habbing with her astonishingly even more boring boyfriend David Alex Macqueen , a guy who's basically a fanny pack and high tube socks in human form. He, like her parents, is rushing the dreadfully dull Sally into marriage and family life, a sentence even she can tell would be worse than prison.
