The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (2013)

This Emmy Award winning webseries changed the way I looked at YouTube. The best part of  the series is that they took up the risk of portraying a 200-year-old  classic which is still loved by the readers with a modern flavour.  They ended up becoming super-successful in their venture.

Here is the very first episode of this amazing show called Lizzie Bennet Diaries (2013):

No. of Episodes: 100

Created by: Hank Green, Bernie Su

Cast: Ashley Clements, Laura Spencer, Mary Kate Wiles, Maxwell Glick, Daniel Vincent Gordh

Rating: 4.5/5

Plot: Lizzie Bennet, a 24-year-old mass communications graduate student makes a vlog on her personal daily life to present for her thesis. Her vlogs soon become popular and her life is nothing but interesting as she still lives with her siblings, dad, and her mom who just wants to see her daughters in a relationship or married to some rich gentlemen.

What’s good?

The classic, evergreen love story of Elizabeth and Darcy (Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice (1813)) gets a new twist without the original story being tampered.The series is in the vlog format which is something new to the viewers. The characters and casting are so relatable and amazing. They’ll stay with you long after you are done watching the entire series.

What’s not?

Technically none. But, I would have liked a better Mr. Darcy!

What to do?

Definitely, watch it! You won’y regret. 🙂
