Default The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

I believe it deserves its own thread, since there's been so much discussion of it on the Say It thread.

I guess now with Gigi's videos we're getting videos Monday through Friday, which is awesome. And geez that twist about Lydia. Damn you, show, for making me care so much about one of the most unlikeable fictional characters ever.

The Lydia videos make me so uncomfortable. She was so bubbly and lively, and now she looks ill and sounds so sad.

Gigi has her own videos? I have to check them out.

I really love how they took the completely two-dimensional Lydia Austin created and made her a real person. The "good enough" video just killed me.

Eeeek, this episode! On the one hand, Lizzie and Darcy are freaking adorable at the beginning, but then it all goes to hell. I was wondering how they were going to modernize Lydia's story to make it scandalous for this day and age. Well done!

I have never even heard of this. I assume it's a TV show?

ETA: Never mind, I found it.

I was wondering how they'd modernize that portion of the story, too... Ugh! WICKHAM IS SUCH A DOUCHE!

Obvi I already knew that... But 2013 Wickham is EXTRA DOUCHEY!

Can we talk about how brilliant the reveal of that was though? They posted a link to the sex tape website as "spam" on a Lydia video, and let the fandom freak out for a couple videos before confirming it on twitter. And there was also Charlotte tweeting at Lizzie because she wouldn't pick up her phone... I'm just so constantly impressed by this show.

I was wondering what would be a sufficient controversy since pre-marital sex, potential elopement, and a forced marriage aren't so scandalous today.

I was thinking he'd talk her into doing something illegal or get her doped up, but this was a much better idea. I'm guessing he already has footage or he wouldn't be advertising it and risking her seeing it.

There's a new Gigi video. I think Gigi forgot that Domino auto-uploads.

Well, if she follows the Austen Lydia, she won't really care about it or how her family may feel about it.
