THE SHADES OF PEMBERLEY ARE THUS POLLUTED! I'm so glad there are so many others here who've watched the BBC version over and over. I'm one of those people who get ultra-frustrated at moronic characters in fiction, even though it's fiction. I could not stand the BBC Mrs. Bennett, or Mr. Collins, but I understand that they're just ridiculous. But I must say, to this day, I randomly spit out scenes from this version. Mary singing her song at the party. Lizzie singing that Henry Purcell song. "A friend in need is a friend in deed!" "Ooh, the soldiers!" I only saw the 2005 movie in the theaters and did not like it. The other monstrous BBC mini-series that's ultra frustrating but addictive is Bleak House. I'm starting Little Dorritt from the library this week. I absolutely loved the recent BBC version of Emma.
