Vlogging Pride & Prejudice

My sister has directed my attention to “a modernized adaptation of the classic Jane Austen novel, Pride and Prejudice. The story is told primarily through Lizzie Bennet‘s Video Diaries, while being supported by her and other characters social media streams.” There are fifteen short episodes so far (you can start here), and from what I’ve seen, they are cute, funny, very contemporary, and very girly. With Jane Austen as source material, how can this lose? Multiple characters are chatting on Twitter, and those conversations are being collected on Lizzie’s tumblr site, if not elsewhere, and with the many links to clothes and styles, like all the kids do nowadays, perhaps the creators of this show can actually make some money.

Do people actually make money off the Internet? That is so 90s.

One thought on “Vlogging Pride & Prejudice”

  1. When I wrote “very contemporary,” I was referring to the vulgar language some people use regularly now. I hadn’t watched the episodes where a whole lot more vulgar language is used–not actual curse words, but nasty talk of a type you may have read or heard about. So episode five has been the worst one, but they still have merit as a modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. It’s a well-written series.
