Losing myself in Austen

Besides keeping (so far) to my Lenten sacrifice of not having any kind of softdrinks, and keeping myself from watching Taiwanese dramas, I have a new current fascination. Lost in Austen. It has been airing for some time on Velvet Channel (Thursday, 830pm local time [+8GMT] if I am not mistaken), I think, and has interested me very much. Though honestly, I have yet to read the book Pride and Prejudice, I was able to watch the movie starring Keira Knightley and it was then that I fell in love with the movie and the story.

Basically, what I have gathered so far is that the movie stars a girl, Amanda Price, who is a modern Brit living in well,  modern London. She is a very avid fan of Pride and Prejudice, to the point that she has memorized the story by heart, and has lived it in her dreams. And I daresay, I think she has also fallen in love with Mr Darcy, and his story with Elizabeth Bennet. That being beside  the point, one day Amanda finds Elizabeth Bennet in her bathroom and eventually the two end up switching places. Amanda Price then lives in the Pride and Prejudice story, made available by a secret door in the attic of the Bennet household, and a shower door in Amanda’s bathroom.

So begins the story. Amanda Price living the Pride and Prejudice story, with full knowledge of the story (from the book) and trying as best as she can to live up to the story, where it not for her possibly influencing the outcome of the story and having some of the characters fall in love with her, and vice versa.

As of this writing, I have only seen part of Episode 1, and some short clippings of the other episodes. I have yet to torrent the rest of the 3 episodes. But as you can ascertain from my other blog, I am a big fan of Pride and Prejudice. I can’t wait to find the time to be able to torrent the other episodes.

Off to bed now~
