Perfect adaptation and casting! Blows doors on the more recent cinematic version.

Just Perfect!

Better than the movie adaptation and very loyal to the book and the era it portrays. I have some objections to the casting, especially those of the two oldest Bennet sisters.

This show isn't bad, even though the realisation is far from perfect and aged a little badly. It sure does respect the book more than the movie did and the criticism of the society is really well done. I'm a little curious about the choice of the actress playing Jane, who is supposed to be the most beautiful girl of the family but looks a little bit awkward in this show. However, my biggest criticism is the lack of chemistry between Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth, which makes it difficult to understand why they would fall in love with each other.
