My Latest Obsession: The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

I finally had the time to check out The Lizzie Bennet Diaries on YouTube and when I found out that Hank Green, John Green's brother, is the co-creater, I knew I would love it.

I must admit that this may be my favorite adaption of Austen's Pride and Prejudice.  What is even more shocking is when I read P&P, I pretty much couldn't stand Lydia.  In many of the movies, I couldn't stand her as well.  However, in The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, I love Lydia. She is hysterical, over the top, and fun. I really felt for her more in this adaption than the book.

So, anyone else obsessed and addicted?

If you are a fan of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice or simply want to check out that awesomness that is The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, check out the YouTube page or their tumblr to get started.  Before you know it, you'll be on episode 60.

  1. I'm SO addicted! I like Lydia, but she still is a bit on my nerves, but at least I like her a little more in this one.

  7. While I love the '95, 2005 and this version for various reasons, I too am addicted! It is SO good! I also agree with Lydia: this adaptation does the best job with showing her side of things and giving her so much depth as a character and as a person!
