Lizzie Bennet Diary Reviews

This site has multiple reviews from viewers without credentials, but it is helpful to read because it gives insight into other fans interpretations/reactions to the series.

“So when I first began to hear whisperings about The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, a web series created and produced by Hank Green (of vlogbrothers/Nerdfighters fame) and Bernie Su, I admit I was skeptical. I thought there was no room in my heart for another version of Pride and Prejudice. But after just a few episodes, I was hooked on the fictional video diaries and accompanying social media posts of one reimagined and thoroughly modern Lizzie Bennet.” -Bitch Media

“Forget Oscar-tipped films and lush BBC dramatisations – the Lizzie Bennet Diaries is an addictive bi-weekly retelling of Pride and Prejudice for the web generation” -The Guardian

“The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is often a little too precious, with its twinkling theme music and frequent conspicuous winks at the audience (in the second video, Lizzie informs the viewer that she loves “any movie with Colin Firth”), its vague, sunny California setting.” -The Female Gaze

“For the last year, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries has served up its modern take on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice in bite-sized portions. Now that the story has been retold, the team is looking to explore other classics.” -Wired

“Watching the first episode turned into the first twenty, and then the next twenty, and then I was caught up in time for the last half-dozen or so episodes that have been released this month.” -Cultural  Learnings
