During this episode of #GentlemanJackCrack we take what can only be described as an Iliad length journey, through the beauty that is episode two of of the HBO/BBC series Gentleman Jack entitled “I Just Went There to Study Anatomy”. We discuss the ever growing thirst of Lady Ann of House Parched, Anne “Hide Your Wives” Lister snatching petticoats with sexy math words like “thruppence” and “ha’penny per corve”, the toxicity of Anniana (Anne & Mariana; do we like this ship name?), and so much more. Too much? We hope not! See below for relevant chapter marks, and follow us on all the things for daily talk of grubbling! @gentlemanjackcrack @gentlemancrack
