Ashley’s “Just Crack an Egg” commercial came on while I was watching Maddow’s interview with Warren.

That felt appropriate.

So which Pride and Prejudice should you watch?

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019

writersarea:

(Disclaimer: They’re all wonderful in their own way.)

BBC Mini Series from 1995:

Pros:

  • The most realistic of the options at hand
  • Gives you nearly six hours to give the story the time it deserves
  • Has the time to give you all of the characters without feeling rushed
  • The characters are adorable (or annoying depending on needs Mr. Collins), but they aren’t godlike. It’s great to see real people on screen
  • You actually get to see Lydia and Mr. Wickham hiding from their family which I don’t see in any other adaptation?
  • More time is dedicated to Mr. Darcy’s point of view
  • Mrs. Bennet is perfect
  • Collin Firth (according to fandom)

Cons:

  • I personally have an issue with some the music even though its still admittedly good
  • It does take about six hours to get through, though you can take a break between each episode
  • If you’re looking for fluff, this is the least fluffy version of the lot
  • Probably has the most muted colors of the three, but it’s also from 1995 so…

Pride and Prejudice 2005 (with Keira Knightley)

Pros:

  • Talk about a bi dream world
  • This is definitely the fluffy one
  • Probably the easiest one to sit down and watch all at once as it is a movie
  • Elizabeth walking across a field to meet Darcy where he proposes is such a dream sequence
  • It flows rather nicely as a story and certainly does the story justice for the time its given
  • Keira Knightley is a wonderful actress in my opinion

Cons

  • The music is rather repetitive, you could replace the soundtrack with one song and be close to the current one
  • Probably goes the least in depth of the three
  • Kitty and Mary don’t get as much focus as they deserve
  • You don’t get quite the sense that a bunch of time is passing
  • Feels much less real than the other two

Lizzie Bennet Diaries (Youtube)

Pros:

  • Definitely the easiest to watch if you only have a  few minutes here and there
  • This is a thoroughly modern version, so keep that in mine

  • Stays loyal to the story while making it modern. There’s no question that this is Pride and Prejudice

  • Charlotte is fucking adorable

  • Lydia has an amazing character arc that fits in a more modern sense and is PERFECT

  • Georgiana is the cutest thing I have ever seen

  • Lizzie encompasses the young adult in this day and age

  • I think they all have Twitters which is really neat?

  • Fitzwilliam is a joy

Cons:

  • There are several characters you never get to meet like her mother and father, only second hand
  • It is very Lizzie centric (which I like), and that’s obvious, but it means that you get more of her than you will than in any other adaptation and less of everyone else

  • Kitty does not exist

  • Mary does exist, but as a cousin rather than a sister (because most people don’t have 5 kids in this day and age)

I honestly can’t speak highly enough of any of these, especially the Lizzie Bennet Diaries which is just such a unique take on the series.

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries 5 Year Anniversary Snobby Mr. Douchey – Ep: 6  (April 26th 2012)

Darcy’s boring, stuffy, unbelievably rude. He thinks he’s too good for us “common folk.” But he’s handsome! And rich! Even richer than Bing Lee!

“Why is he so altered? From what can it proceed? It cannot be for me—it cannot be for my sake that his manners are thus softened. My reproofs at Hunsford could not work such a change as this. It is impossible that he should still love me.”

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries: Characters + Number of episodes they appear in.

Heh. Who would ever bother to amass so much data?

I’ve made the point before, but this is why I think Ashley doesn’t get enough credit.

All of it. All of the credit.

Okay. Not all. But a lot. And more than she gets.

what 4 episodes was she not in?

also I’d love to see these including the other 60 videos!

According to a spreadsheet made by some obsessive fan, the four episodes in the main LizzieBennet channel that did not feature Ashley were:

  • Lizzie Bennet is in Denial (ep. 15, 2012-05-28), with Charlotte and Jane, including Laura Spencer’s Jane!Darcy saying, “It’s super important.”
  •  Enjoy the Adorbs (ep. 20, 2012-06-14), with Lydia and Jane, including these Lydia lines: “My name is Lydia Bennet and this is my HAUL!”, “Talk about your truth universally acknowledged! Am I right?”, and “drunken hookup marriage eff tee DUBS!” I wonder what that Mary Kate Wiles is doing these days. She had real talent.
  • Your Pitch Needs Work (ep. 41, 2012-08-27), in which Maxwell Glick’s Ricky Collins makes a job offer to Julia Cho’s Charlotte. She’d never take it, of course. I mean, he’s ridiculous!
  • Summer Friends (ep. 69, 2012-12-03), with Lydia and Jane, including Jane!Lydia costume theater. Fun fact: This was the only time anyone not-Lydia played Lydia during costume theater. (The Lydia!Lydia happened in the above-mentioned “Enjoy the Adorbs”.)
