The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

Over the past few months, Camille and I have become addicted to a Youtube series called The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. It's essentially Pride and Prejudice but adapted to fit the modern day. I really enjoyed how it helps make characters' reactions to some of the events a little more understandable because of the way it's applied to things we'd react to in a similar way. The acting is well-done, the plot moves quickly and is kept interesting, and overall the show is uniquely entertaining.
Camille really really wanted to see Darcy and Lizzie finally admit they were in love before she left for her mission. She knew the whole series wouldn't be out until a couple of weeks after she was already gone, so she was just really hoping that would at least happen before. And it did! Here is the email she sent me after she watched the video:
"watch new lizzie bennet now best day ever life complete too happy for correct grammar and punctuation"

Here's the video:

Watch The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. They're amazing. :)
