I first discovered Pemberley Digital last year, when a friend of mine recommended The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. I watched a few episodes, but didn’t really get into it.
Then, in March, my grandfather died. We were at my grandma’s house for a week straight. I couldn’t handle all of the crying, so I went into the guest room one night and tried to find something to watch online. I couldn’t find anything.
Then, I remembered the LBD. I clicked on the playlist of the first ten episodes, deciding that I’d try it again.
Fast forward to three am that night, when I finally told myself, ‘YOU HAVE TO GO TO BED.’
I’ve been a fan of Pemberley Digital ever since. I watched the entire series of the LBD again with Arwen, and I just bought it off iTunes and am watching it yet again. It’s that good!
(However, there’s some language and mature themes, so I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone under sixteen.)
Arwen is exactly like Jane, and it’s shocking how much I’m like Lizzie. CRAZY.
When I heard that Pemberley Digital would be making a miniseries of my favorite Jane Austen novel, Emma, I was ecstatic. Emma Approved has been everything I ever hoped it could be and more.
Watching the episodes on Mondays and Thursdays have become me and my younger sister’s Thing. As soon as the episodes come out, we’re on my laptop, laughing, crying, jeering, and smiling like idiots for the next few days… ’til the next episode comes out.
However, after today, it’s over.
No more Emma.
No more Snarky Knightley.
No more KnightHouse.
No more B-Mart.
No more Harriet.
No more Harriet/B-Mart adorbs.
No more Frank and Jane.
And, from what I’ve heard, no more Jane Austen for Pemberley Digital.
CRY ALL THE TEARS.
So I just want to say… thank you, Pemberley Digital. Thank you for giving me something to look forward to every Monday and Thursday, something for my younger sister and I to bond over, and something for my sisters and I to fangirl over.
