Since Monday was the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice, I decided to try watching the Lizzie Bennet Diaries online. It's a vlog series with Pride and Prejudice characters in a modern setting. To be honest, I'd tried to read the original, but I couldn't maintain interest in the dancing and talking and talking about dances. Instead, it's a bunch of funny, melodramatic reenactments. Besides, it made me feel more sympathetic for the characters- except Lydia. She's annoying.
I think I'll also watch Lost in Austen, just because Alex Kingston's in it. I mean, almost anything with her I can retcon into "River undercover."
