I love Pride & Prejudice.
I know, I know, liking Lizzie Bennet and lusting after Mr Darcy is so 1995, but it's the truth. I love P&P, always have, always will.
I remember the first time I read it back in high school, before it was synonymous with Colin Firth trudging sexily out of a lake. I just adored it, and not in that "Ooh, it's Jane Austen, so everything of hers must be amazing" kind of way. Truth be told, P&P is the only one I've ever been able to stand to read all the way through more than once. Maybe that makes me a literary Plebeian, but I don't care.
But the point of this little rant to to make a recommendation to you all. Go and check out the web series below, or mainline the whole thing by watching the playlist here [link]. It's a modern retelling of the story, with Lizzie as a media student who starts a video blog. It's low budget, done completely in the style of vlogging, and is so clever!
It's actually finished now, and with 100 episodes at between three and four minutes each, that's almost six hours of viewing. Honestly, if you like Pride and Prejudice even a little bit, you're going to love The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.
