Watch This! : Lost in Austen

Here's one for all you Jane Austen fans: Lost in Austen. And we are not talking Austin, Texas. We are talking Pride and Prejudice!

This British TV mini-series is about Amanda, a Jane Austen fanatic, who switches places with Elizabeth Bennet. This is a seriously fun imagining of what might happen if a modern woman took Miss Bennet's place in the novel...while Elizabeth enjoys life back in modern-day London.

Lost in Austen (here's the trailer) also stars the excellent Hugh Bonneville who plays one of my favorite characters in Downton Abbey. If anything, you will get a kick out of the scene with Mr. Darcy in the pond. (Go ahead, click on the link. You know you want to. Better yet, here's the video.)
