Like & Dislike

The adults in the Ivory Spring household simply adore the 1995 BBC rendition of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.  I like this Mr. Darcy:

  1. My mom and I agree! We LOVE Colin Firth as Mr Darcy! My mom loved that miniseries so much in fact, she bought a copy for all SIX of her children! It’s so funny that you bring this up because I think my mom is on a mission to see every P & P ever made! She compares ever Mr Darcy to Colin Firth as if he is the gold standard!

  2. The first one is yummy and huggable !! The second one….I’m glad you said it’s a statue.. Creepy and I was wondering what was wrong with him….icky…..

  3. Agreed, Colin Firth is the penultimate Mr. Darcy as Jennifer Ehle is the best Elizabeth. We were able to record it when PBS did a whole series of Jane Austen movies a few years ago. I’m surprised it hasn’t worn out–even DH really like it. My very DB just gave me the Keira Knightley version, and the few minutes I saw of it on TV, I didn’t like it at all. My DD has watched the whole thing and doesn’t like it a bit What to say–we are spoiled by having watched the best. I do actually like the Greer Garson-Laurence Olivier version, but only because I think of it as a different story–it’s all played for comedy which is fun, but nothing like the book.

  4. I am with you on this! I purchased all the Jane Austen movies from PBS and I watch them over and over…. ♥

  5. Ugh– scary! On the side I stayed at the Dolphin Hotel in Southampton UK
    recently where Jane Austin is reported to have celebrated her 18th birthday! Awesome, I highly recommend.
