    He's good enough for me!
    “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.”

    We just watched the first episode of the 1980s BBC version. Dreadful.

    It is amazing how different the quality of the BBC productions can be.

    I hadn't read Northanger Abbey before seeing it on Monsterpiece. My copy arrived yesterday! It was on sale!

    My husband went online after watching all six episodes - he has more tolerance than I do - and read some reviews. Most people said it was dull, but faithful to the book. The 1990s version wasn't faithful to the book, but interesting, exciting and well-made. Most people thought the most recent version on MT to be very unsatifying, with Fanny as something of a feral child, which she wasn't written to be. I saw her portrayed as more of a free spirit who followed her heart, unlike all the other characters, even Edmund, who were bound by societal conventions and appreciation of wealth, class and handsomeness.

    Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth this week. Alright, but awfully long. Was it just my TV, or was there than weird radio-like narration all through the first scene? I'm interested enough to catch next week, but I'm not really feeling a particular passion for any of the current plotlines. I get why Mr. Darcy is so grumpy all the time. I'm all that critical too, but doesn't he get tired by being so snarly all the time?

    The best Masterpiece Theater versions are the ones with multiple parts, rent off of Netflix and watch all day, get totally immersed in the stories. That's my idea of a great time.

    I enjoyed the Colin Frith version last night very much. I still am very partial to the 2005 version with Keira Knightley, Matthew MacFadyen, and Donald Sutherland. Both versions have their good points and both well worth watching, jmo. I watched the 2005 version on Sat night so I had a good chance to compare both. I love them both! I think Sutherland does a better job of playing her father. The first English country dance scene is better in the 2005 version, one of the best parts of the movie, I enjoy the different perspective of Elizabeth rejecting Darcy in the rain, I also enjoy the part where Elizabeth visits his home and all the collected art work.

    MacFadyen gets my vote as th handsomer, more appealing Mr. Darcy, but that's just my opinion.
