Well... I couldn't wait, so whether you want it or not, here's part one of my recap.
First off, let me start by saying that, sadly, English is not my first language. I speak it pretty well, but I still make mistakes, so if you spot one, please let me know!
Secondly, I know that a lot of Austen fans spit fire at the very mention of this series, but I have the perfect cure: Don’t take it too seriously. I know it’s trying to get in on the Jane Austen hype of the last couple of years, and it’s not the best thing ever written, and the characters are taken for some weird spins… I’m not an absolute Austen purist, but I do prefer films/series to stay as close to the book as possible. And yet, even as a lit major and Austen geek, I can still enjoy it. It’s fluffy, flawed, ridiculous, screwball fun, and it has never pretended to be anything different. The best thing to do is to just enjoy it for an hour and then forget all about it for the rest of the week. However, there will still be nitpicking along the way, don’t worry.
