When I was searching the Interwebs for last week's obsessed., I ran across videos for the webseries The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. I have this feeling that someone has told me about these videos before, but I probably noted the title down somewhere with every intention of following up ... and then promptly forgot. (I do that frequently.) I truly apologize to whomever might have told me about the series, because, after catching up completely in a matter of days, I am now totally obsessed.
The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is "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." (via)
If you're at all familiar with the novel's storyline, you will have no trouble following along with the series. But even knowing all of the plot twists doesn't take away from this fresh take on the story. Plus, the actors who play the characters are so fun. (Especially Fitz! I adore Fitz.)
Start with the video below, and then check out this link to continue. With 84 (and counting) videos (plus videos from other "characters," Twitter conversations and Tumblr photo posts), it might seem like a daunting task, but you can do it.
Let me know when you've caught up and we'll discuss.
