The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is a reimagining of Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice, as seen through the eyes of the ever-snarky Lizzie. While the cast is pared down (only three of the five Bennet sisters are featured), the series is doing a remarkably thorough job progressing through the narrative, with the sixteen episodes released so far taking viewers up to chapter six of the book.
The series embraces the source material (in the first episode, Lydia’s mother makes her daughter a t-shirt with the book’s first sentence, “[i]t is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife”) without taking itself too seriously. And with new episodes every Monday and Thursday, viewers are promised a steady stream of fictional vlogging. The show’s YouTube channel has brought in 1.5 million views to date.
