I am so on a literary-adaptation webseries kick right now! I felt I have to share all the ones I’ve seen/have in my “Watch Later”.
Now, before you say anything, I’m all up to date on the Pemberly Digital series. I’m not going to talk about “The Lizzie Bennett Diaries”, “Welcome to Sanditon”, “Emma, Approved”, or “Frankenstein, MD”.
I will, however, point out that they have started a new one, an adaptation of Little Women called “The March Family Letters”.
And now, one to the plugging!
“Classic Alice” is a webseries about a college student who decides to live her life according to a series of classic novels
“Nothing Much to Do” is Much Ado about Nothing set in high school in New Zealand. Use this playlist to watch the whole series, since it encompasses 4 different channels. Seriously, watch this one. I want to watch it again, and I almost NEVER do that! *complete*
“Elinor and Marianne Take Barton”. Sense & Sensibility in college, told via Marianne’s vlog.
“A Tell-Tale Vlog” Edgar Allen Poe and Lenore decide to film a vlog about living together. You should also check out the other videos by Shipwrecked; they’re all of a classic literary and romance bent.
“In Earnest” The Importance of Being Earnest set in college, told as a series of vlogs from the viewpoints of Jack, Algie, and Cecily, all on one channel for your convenience!
“The Autobiography of Jane Eyre” is a modern Jane’s vlog. This is another one I might watch again. *complete*
“Green Gables Fables” Anne Shirley in high school, now, with a vlog. Her classmates also have vlog channels, so make sure you watch those when they come in.
“From Mansfield with Love” Jane Austen's Mansfield Park set in a hotel that was a great estate, told via the vlog of the put-upon junior housekeeper.
“A Midsemester Night’s Dream” is a production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream……….. with a few updates to the dialogue, and modern characterizations. Like hipster-Lysander and Drama major-Bottom. *complete*
“The Importance of Being Mike” is kinda inspired by The Importance of Being Earnest. Like, what would Cecily be like if she lived now? Oh, yeah, it’s not the story you’re used to.
And now for the things I have queued.
“Jules and Monty” Romeo and Juliet have been given the same assignment for their college Communications class: keep a vlog. *complete*
“The Emma Project” is yet another vlog adaptation of Emma. *complete*
“University Ever After” appears to be about the college-age versions of a bunch of fairy tale characters. Made by the same people as “A Midsemester Night’s Dream”, but made before. I’m watching them in reverse order.
“A Bit Much” Another vlog adaptation of my favorite Shakespeare play. Dunno the specifics yet, but I will in a couple days.
“Kate the Cursed” The Shrew has a video blog. I have to see this.
“The Nick Carraway Chronicles” If F. Scott Fitzgerald had lived now, his greatest story would have been told via vlog.
“Much Ado about a Webseries” Guess what this is YET ANOTHER adaptation of? Something I wouldn’t miss, that’s what.
