Anyone watching?

Cambionome Sun 25-Aug-19 21:16:59

Yes. Scenery looks a bit cardboardy...! confused

JaneJeffer Sun 25-Aug-19 21:17:36

It does!

MyOtherProfile Sun 25-Aug-19 21:18:01

Yes. Is the woman with Kris Marshall the mum from the greatest showman?

LIZS Sun 25-Aug-19 21:27:50

Gratuitous nudity!

Cambionome Sun 25-Aug-19 21:30:30

Jane Austen only wrote a couple of chapters of this before her death didn't she? The rest has just been made up...?

LIZS Sun 25-Aug-19 21:34:43

Indeed, and probably why it feels so bitty.

StumpyinSomerset Sun 25-Aug-19 21:36:34

Watching as it's set locally to me.

JaneJeffer Sun 25-Aug-19 21:37:16

Ohh hello handsome.

JaneJeffer Sun 25-Aug-19 21:43:02

Creepy brother and sister confused

LIZS Sun 25-Aug-19 21:43:39

We've already reached the limit of JA work.

How does the farm girl who got picked up in the carriage know how to do ballroom dancing and where did she get her lovely dresses from?

JaneJeffer Sun 25-Aug-19 21:46:03

And her wonderbra!

JellyfishAndShells Sun 25-Aug-19 21:48:13

This is looking more like a parody by the moment and more Thackeray than Austen. Not engaged at all thus far.

JaneJeffer Sun 25-Aug-19 21:50:05

It's definitely lacking the wit and depth of JA!

LIZS Sun 25-Aug-19 21:51:32

Agree, very laboured and unsubtle.

Bouledeneige Sun 25-Aug-19 21:53:13

Very cardboardy sets - is it a bit low budget? It doesn't quite feel as solid and well structured as a usual Austen.

LIZS Sun 25-Aug-19 21:56:06

Odd music

HeffaLump1 Sun 25-Aug-19 21:57:13

And singing hmm

JellyfishAndShells Sun 25-Aug-19 21:57:51

Good grief - an unlikely musical number. And we have a Darcylite

JaneJeffer Sun 25-Aug-19 21:59:23

He's a contrary fecker.

Cambionome Sun 25-Aug-19 22:00:36

Trying to copy Mr Knightly/Emma convo?

MyOtherProfile Sun 25-Aug-19 22:01:27

Odd music

The music is the best thing about it. It's Julie Fowliss though so almost as anachronistic as Vanity Fair. JF also had a cameo in the ball scene.

JaneJeffer Sun 25-Aug-19 22:01:28

And paraphrasing P&P

JaneJeffer Sun 25-Aug-19 22:02:20

It's like JA fanfic.
