YouTube sign in San Bruno, CAI am utterly and completely obsessed with The Lizzie Bennet Diaries on Youtube.  Produced by the VlogBrothers, Hank and John Green, this series is a modern retelling of Jane Austen’s Pride and Predjudice. It’s fabulous:  the conceit of the show is the Lizzie Bennet is running a vlog, aided by Charlotte.  She lives with her parents with Jane, and Lydia (Mary is a cousin, and Kitty…is a cat).  There is, of course, a new neighbor named Bing Lee (see Mr Bingley), who has a pompous windbag of a best friend called Darcy.

Lizzie is presently getting a Master’s Degree in communication.  She is focusing on new media, and not things such as how to run a TV or radio station and how to communicate with a radio advertiser.  She is currently doing an independent study with a professor.  This course has taken her to a new place to observe, Pemberly digital.  This company is owned by…one William Darcy.  His sister Gigi works there as well, and Gigi is adorable because you can tell that she ships Lizzie/Darcy.   It is funny how a story which everyone has known since kingdom come has thousands of people waiting to see how it turns out.
