Emma Approved

In case you missed it, last week the creators of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries premiered their latest web series -- Emma Approved! While only three episodes have been released thus far, I am LOVING this modern, fresh take on Austen's Emma and I can't wait to see where they take these characters next.

Episode One:



Episode Two:



Episode Three:

I *love* Emma Approved! It's been soooo good so far! And Knightly is super hot! :D

I'm loving Emma Approved, too! I know some people don't like Emma so far, but her character is kind of annoying in the book, too, until you get to know her (I've always liked her, anyway :). Mr. Knightley is perfect, I think.

By the way, have you seen the Jane Eyre series? You can find it here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3NxAiyc-89HP3wHV2y5mbwi2TidvocKZ . It's not nearly as famous as the Austen adaptations, but it should be because they are doing an incredible job! The first few episodes are a little strange but it gets much better. I think it would be really difficult to adapt Jane Eyre to a modern setting, but I can't believe how well they've done so far. :)

Great... now you've reminded me that a.) I have to finish LBD (and am in fact looking them all up now!) and b.) I have to start 'Emma.' Thanks, Ruth. Thanks a lot. ;)

@Alexandra - I couldn't agree with you more about Knightley! :)

@Kristin - So glad you're enjoying this too!! I think it is a lot of fun and so far the cast is doing a great job.

Thanks for the tip on the Jane Eyre series!! I will definitely check that out!

@Rissi - HA!! You're welcome. ;)
