The Epic Awesome-ness of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries!

Okay, so you all know how awesome John and Hank Green are. Not only is John an AMAZING writer, but he and his brother Hank have created the coolest Youtube vlogs, and they are the ones behind Crash Course, an awesome channel that is funny and educational. But mostly funny.

Well, Hank Green had this idea to create a vlog series to tell a story. And what story did he choose to tell? Just, you know, one of the best classic love stories ever, Pride and Prejudice. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is a series of videos in which a modern Lizzie Bennet tells us all about her life, with quite a bit of hilarity. I'm a big fan of the whole modern take on classic novels (as long as they're done creatively), and this is probably the best I've ever seen, mainly because the medium is just so different and awesome!

So, please check out this first video! You won't regret it!

And because I know you want more...click here to go to Lizzie Bennet's channel!

Now tell your friends! And watch for new episodes every Monday and Thursday! I am smitten!

HAHAHAHAHA omg omgg thank you so much for turning me onto these. Monday and Thursday just officially became my favorite days.

So, if you were a modern P&P character, where would you fit?

I love to watch this series, I even forgive it the slight Americanization because it works in this case.

Oh I just love those two. Shocker...but I've never read Pride and Prejudice. I know, I know, it's awful. This looks pretty dang hilarious though. I need to def. check it out.
