The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.

I can't remember who posted about this a few weeks ago, but that was how I came across The Lizzie Bennet Diaries on YouTube and I love it. I decided to share with you guys this awesome little "show" that I think you should watch, especially if you love Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen :)

What exactly is "The Lizzie Bennet Diaries?"
"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. The series was created by Hank Green and Bernie Su."
You can watch the first episode here:

and check out the rest of them on YouTube here or watch a playlist in order here

I have become addicted to watching this. It is such an awesome idea that I am surprised no one thought of sooner. I love watching Lizzie and her two sisters (Jane & Lydia, because Mary and Kitty aren't part of this adaptation) make these videos alongside Charlotte. I wish a few other characters were included but Lizzie makes up for it with her hilarious costumes and dialogue. You can also find these characters everywhere; they each have a set of social network sites that you can follow around (and pretend like they are real people *sigh*)
