    The only one I know of is the 1986 and I wasn't impressed with it much.

    Anyone catch Jane Austen Regrets last night? It was really impressive (to me). Much more engaging than the adaptations of her works that came before in this marathon.

    I started to watch it, but when commentator said it was basically made up, I was disappointed and decided not to watch it. If it was really good, I suppose I could try to catch it another time.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I don't know a lot about Jane Austen's life, so the made-up parts didn't really bother me! They really did potray her very INTJ-ish, though. It was really about the later part in her life, sort of semi-mirrored through the life of her niece, Fanny. Fanny really idolizes the romance of her books, but it's sort of about how in real life, the love and money are really at odds and don't coalesce. And if Jane Austen's happy about the decisions she's made regarding love. (Taking back her agreement to marry Mr. Bridges is a major one.)

    (Does this mean the whole Jane Austen Presents thing is over? I suppose I've got to look it up.)

    My daughter and I watched the last hour of it and thought it was great. It also featured partner dancing. Jane was brilliantly cast. She really came off as an INTJ. Cassandra and her mother were also excellent.

    I recorded it because I was watching the Superbowl, but I am going to watch it now, and do some ironing at the same time. Ironing always goes so much faster if I can think about something else while I'm doing it.

    I did see a few moments, and I also thought she seemed INTJ. I wonder what she was in real life.
