Episode 1, Second watch
When Mr. Bingley moves into the neighborhood, Mrs. Bennet looks to marry off one of her five daughters.
Hello I am drunk and very tired. I hung out with my coworkers tonight and they talked me out of putting a drunk video of myself explaining the plot of the miniseries onto the Internet so I’d just like to say THANK YOU to them — whereas I bet you enablers were upset at that news.
I’m in the back of a Lyft right now and my driver is a middle-aged man playing Taylor Swift and I really just want to ask him if he actually likes this music? Or is he just playing it because he thinks I’ll like it? Sociology!!
OK so I’m home now. I was not murdered by my lyft driver which is always. a. very. real. CONCERN. thankyouverymuch.
I suppose it’s tradition. I have to actually be drunk for at least one of these blogs every year. I’m always unintentionally drunk tho! It’s because it’s December and it’s impossible to make it through the holidays without being unintentionally drunk at least once.
But also, paradoxically, I don’t think I’m as funny when I’m drunk, so I hope y’all are here for bad puns and unfinished sentences.
(I’m gonna go back tomorrow and try to edit this and it’s just gonna be gibberish, huh?) Fuck I haven’t even mentioned the miniseries yet 😂
Ok so we’re back on Episode 1. I was gonna make the second go-around actual reviews of the episodes instead of just random shit about the miniseries, but I guess I fucked that up lol maybe on the third watch…
Watching this series is very different when you’re in a relationship versus when you’re not in one, I think. At least, I view it differently now that I’m seeing someone steadily. (That’s new and uncharted territory for me.)
I just like, get what Lizzy’s going through a little bit better, I think.
Not that that would be true for everyone watching, but I feel like I have a better understanding of her characterization and decisions she and Darcy are making.
Even her rejection of Darcy makes sense to me in this case — as well as coming to love him from her time spent at Pemberley. She hedging her bets very carefully. Nothing but the truest love will tempt her into matrimony, remember.
What do you think? What’s something you noticed about the series that took you until the third or fourth or more times to understand?
(Let’s all also just cross our fingers, shall we please, and pray I don’t have a hangover.)
Don’t forget to share for some stuff.
(Like how these reminders are getting smaller each day? No seriously, go look at them over the course of the last week lol)
