Sheesh. As If.

Jonathan Last, head Galley Slave, extolls the virtues of Wonderfalls, some show that was on Fox and was axed before I even knew it was out there. Yeah, ok, whatever. I'm not a big fan of watching TV series on DVD, but I suppose there is an audience for something like that, given the way DVD's of 24 and Alias clutter the shelves at the local Blockbuster.

However, dear Jonathan goes a wee bit too far in his praise.

{...}The 13 episodes have an arc and a satisfying conclusion and it plays like the greatest maxi-series ever broadcast on television (apologies to the BBC's Pride and Prejudice).

Yeah, you'd better apologize to Pride and Prejudice, bub. In fact, here's Mr. Darcy now.


Jonathan, my friend, you might want to have a wee bit of a chat with the man, wherein you extend your most sincere and heartfelt apologies.


You might also want to take back that bit about Wonderfalls "...play{ing} like the greatest maxi-series ever broadcast on television."

Just ask Mr. Wickham about what happens to men who don't apologize to Mr. Darcy. You might find yourself being forced to marry the incessantly twitty Lydia in Wickham's stead. And I can't think that you'd enjoy that. Really. Just say you're sorry and all will be well.

Kathy, I just love it when you get all Pride & Prejudice-y!

I maintain my high esteem for Wonderfalls even while singing the praises of Pride, Prejudice, Darcy, et al. How great is Pride & Prejudice? It was able to spawn, generations later, a successful franchise of literary and cinematic spoofs. That's greatness.

Still, go buy Wonderfalls. It's awesome. (And a lot cheaper than the Pride & Prejudice monster set.)

Well, I guess you're going to wind up with Lydia, dude.

This has got nothing to do with maintaining high esteem for Pride and Prejudice whilst at the same time extolling the virtues of Wonderfalls. It has, however, got everything to do with saying P&P is BETTER than Wonderfalls for the simple reason that nothing's better than P&P.

I have no idea if that made any sense whatsoever. I kept getting distracted by Colin in ruffles. (sigh)

Mmmmm, Colin in ruffles!

Mmmm it's a nice day today :)

Have nothing to do tonight -- I think I have to watch that again!
