The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

I think my favorite thing about the Lizzie Bennet Diaries is that it didn’t take itself too seriously.  You often find, (much in the vein of teachers ignoring that Shakespeare is full of dick jokes and bad puns), that people forget that Pride and Prejudice, in addition to being a romance, is also a comedy and a social satire/commentary.  I feel that the way that the way the creators of LBD modernized the story kept that element intact and I love them for it.
