Heaven on PBS

I noticed this a couple weeks ago but didn't realize until now that Masterpiece Theatre seems to be celebrating Jane Austen. It also appears there'll be a fictionalization of Ms. Austen's life which intrigues me.

One story that I have yet to see any version of is Northanger Abbey. Unfortunately, I was only able to see half of it. I look forward to a repeat at some point (fingers crossed). I was surprised to see the there is a version of "Emma" starring Kate Beckinsdale. For fans of Colin Firth, they will be showcasing the 1995 BBC version of "Pride and Prejudice." I already own the two disc set, but there's always time to watch a little Jane Austen on PBS! Ah, indulgence... .

Maybe I should dust off the old paperbacks for my upcoming trip.

Ah, the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice. Whenever I feel the pressures of life getting to me, I dig out that DVD and watch it again and again. I know every single line, and I've seen it about 100 times. But it's still my favorite.
