Anyone watching? It is so slow. I'm not sure I'll be watching parts 2 and 3 or even the whole of part 1.

Do I need to have watched or read P&P to understand it do you think??

bisjo Thu 26-Dec-13 21:04:00

I think you can watch it without prior knowledge as they are highlighting all the things they need to from P&P, eg Wickham's bad character etc. It really is dull though.

The book was so shit I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole.

LineRunner Thu 26-Dec-13 21:05:32

I mean the PD James debacle, obvs.

It's shite. I've turned over to Big Fat Quiz.

definitely no need to have p&p knowledge.

it's definitely shit!

The plot denouement is really fucking boring anyway.

It is very dull , can't watch anymore

In fact all you really need to have knowledge of is how to change the channel on your television.

I've turned over. Seemed like it's going to be dull and I usually love a period drama.

With Trevor Eve it is just going down .... Assume a lot of shouting and bizarre plot twists

It's got Trev Eve so I'm sticking with it

I'd shag him

The arrival of Eddie Shoestring would be far from the most anachronistic thing in the book.

feelinlucky Thu 26-Dec-13 21:16:05

Turned it over. Load of old cack!

Looked really boring so switched to BBC2.
no interest in racing cars but Idris Elba is presenting it

piratecat Thu 26-Dec-13 21:17:26

lol it's finished anyway, i though it was on loner.

oh well back to watching dd play the Wii (sigh)

TheOneAndOnlyAlpha Thu 26-Dec-13 21:22:57

I really liked it <sulks off to sit in the corner all alone>

Have read the book and tbh the plot is pretty thin and it isn't really a detective story or a classic. They've changed it a bit for the adaptation and include annoying flashbacks for those who don't know the previosu saga. JA it is not.
