Well, I could have called this post "The most incredible, awesome, insanely great, (fill in more words like that) thing in history"! But I thought I just name it "The Lizzie Bennet Diaries" since that is what the post is about :)
You may have guessed it until now but The Lizzie Bennet Diaries are the most incredible, awesome, and insanely greatest thing I have encountered lately.
Everyone who is into old English classics (or movies with Collin Firth) may think "Wait, Lizzie Bennet? Isn't that the girl from..." And yes, she is!
It's all about Lizzie Bennet from Jane Austens' Pride and Prejudice. In fact it is a retelling of the story in a modern way through a vlog. And I love it!
You encounter the Lizzie Bennet Diaries (short: LBD) through there official site.
And to give you a little heads up, why I'm so in love with those vlogs, here is the first video where Lizzie introduces herself.
Have I mentioned how great this series is? 2.5 WPF, like Lizzie likes to say is the best "new shortform" since Awkward's DTR. With more than 3000 likes per video, a view count over 3.000.000, and almost 73.000 subscribers this show has a lot of fans. So why not you, too? Even if you're not a fan of Jane Austen or haven't read the book yet this vlogs are unbelievable funny and intelligent.
I spent half the night watching the episodes that are already on and I can only recommend it to everyone!
In fact there are actually using lines from the real Jane Austen book. Can you find them?
Make sure to subscribe to their Youtube channel, Twitter account, Tumbrl... man, this girl is pretty much everywhere on the internet :)
