So I have been on a total period drama kick these last few days. Basically I have been like: WATCH ALL THE JANE AUSTEN AND WATCH ALL THE THINGS!!!!!!

I love Jane Austins books. I have seen the Pride and Prejudice movie, and if I remember correctly the Sense and Sensibility movie. But of course they don’t do justice to the books. 🙂

Yes, yes, yes!!! I LOVE Jane Austen. My favorite of her works is Pride and Prejudice, with Emma coming in at a close second. I’ve seen adaptations of all of them, but my favorites are the 2005 P&P, the 1995 P&P, and the BBC Emma mini-series. I also love North and South, both the mini-series and the book. 🙂

Does anyone have a favorite hero? I mean, Mr. Darcy is great, but I think Mr. Knightely (Emma), Mr. Thornton (North and South), and Roger Hamley (Wives and Daughters) are my favorites! XD

Ohhhh I adore the three-part Great Expectations with Douglas Booth and Gillian Anderson in it. Also the TV Series Downton Abbey, though it isn’t based off a book. And the Jane Eyre Film with Jamie Bell in it, it’s just GORGEOUS.

I have heard some good things about Downton Abbey, but I don’t think I’m prepared to have my heart crushed by another TV show. xD Well, this isn’t technically a period drama, but I love this Canadian series called Murdoch Mysteries! And I guess Agent Carter would count as a period drama as well?

ooooh yes! I just bought the book Wuthering Heights this weekend and I can’t wait to start that! I’m also borrowing Les Miserables from a friend and I’m going to start that tonight. I actually have not read Pride and Prejudice yet but I have it, and I’m always planning on reading it but I never get past the first chapter because I have this horrible habit of starting it when I’m super busy :p

I looooove that time period. Which version of “Pride and Prejudice” do you like better: the BBC 1995 one or the 2005 film? It’s the 2005 one for me 🙂

1995 P&P <3. Colin Firth is a favorite actor of mine, so he wins. He was Ernest in The Importance of Being Earnest. Also Henry in Dorian Gray, and was in the Mamma Mia movie and Love Actually. TBH if you want me to like a movie, put Colin Firth in it. He's just brilliant as an actor.
As for Downton, it has completely ruined me. All my darling favorite characters can't be happy for more than a moment, and it's SO GOOD. I just. Oh my, I cry so often.

I think I like the 2005 version better, though I agree with Mary that Colin First was FANTASTIC as Mr. Darcy. I mean, THAT SMOULDER!!!!!

RIGHT?! I like how it was like… Accurate, accurate, accurate–COLIN FIRTH IN A WET SHIRT–accurate, accurate.

You HAVE to watch Lorna Doone. The book is pretty awesome too. 😀
