I put off watching this modern web series adaptation of Pride and Prejudice for a long time. I think they had already aired around 70 or so episodes when I finally caved and watched the first one. At a scant three minutes and twenty seconds, it wasn't enough to hook me per se. But it was enough to whet my appetite. And so I pressed on and met impossibly adorbs Jane, too legit to quit Lydia, sweet as apple pie Bing, slick as a whistle Wicks, and, yes--some 50 odd episodes down the line--Darcy himself. And I have to say . . . I'm rather fond of the lot of them. I may be
wildly a teensy bit partial to Lydia (who completely steals the show) and yeah, okay, to Darcy (who is just beautifully awkward). The series actually branches out across several social media forums and includes the abbreviated, but fabulous spin-offs The Lydia Bennet and Pemberly Digital, thereby highlighting the real genius of the adaptation. All signs point to the entire series wrapping up at an even 100 episodes (only six more to go, whatever will I do when it's through). But if you haven't given The Lizzie Bennet Diaries a shot yet, now might just be the perfect time. And if you have, do you like? Do you love? Do you lose whole swaths of your day perusing the LBD delights on Tumblr? And what's your favorite ep so far? I'm a sucker for this one:
I think it's to do with his "costume."
