Jane Austen in January

posted by on December 27 at 11:50 AM


Starting in January, PBS is showing the “The Complete Jane Austen” series. On Sunday evenings, Masterpiece Theatre will broadcast adaptations of all of Austen’s six novels, plus a new drama based on her life.

The series includes new versions of Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, Mansfield Park, and Sense and Sensibility. It will also include the version of Emma starring Kate Beckinsale, and the Pride and Prejudice miniseries with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle.

Perfect viewing for cold and rainy winter Sundays!

I love the six-hour BBC Pride and Prejudice so much it hurts.

Is KCTS on board with this? It would preempt Lawrence Welk.

Persuasion makes me very happy, crappy editing aside.

@1: Uh, Mr. Poe, you do realize you've made the grave error of being on topic? Gillian Anderson (the X-Files one) is hosting this series.

How is that an error?

Just reading this entry brought on my period.

That's charming, Rachael.

Listen Annie, I know it's hard for you to deal with the fact that I'm totally awesome and quite possibly the coolest person in the world, but it isn't my fault. I didn't ask for this. You should be more kind. Woe is me.

My fiancee's head is going to explode. I guess I'd better resign myself to a month of empire waists and posh accents.

Um, Greg. Try FOUR months of empire waists and posh accents. Yippee!

Well, shit.
