I’m late to the game. I admit. but better late than never!
So last night my brother introduced me to a web show called “Emma Approved.” It’s based on Jane’s Austen’s book, “Emma.” I can’t stop watching it!
When I was little I didn’t like adaptations, I thought they were nigh unto heresies. Now that I’m older, I see them more as homages. A tribute to the brilliance of the original work that it can inspire the imagination of others even centuries later.
I love the book, “Emma.” And I have to say that I am really enjoying this adaptation called “Emma Approved.” I think the actors are doing a great job, and I may be developing a slight crush on Knightley. 😉 But I always crush on that character so I shouldn’t be surprised.
I’m also enjoying the costuming. Weird because I’m not really a fancy clothes dressing type of gal, but I am enjoying seeing what Emma wears, and how Harriet tries to emulate her. Maybe I have a secret yen to own lots of fancy clothes. Hmmm.
I am not used to the format of the show, it’s done vlog style, however, I am finding it to be a fun experience. I’m also finding it fascinating how they have updated the original story to modern times.
I love when older works are updated; it shows that emotions and life situations are the same throughout time no matter where or when they happen.
The show is produced by Pemberely Digital. Website: www.pemberleydigital.com
I don’t know much about them, but based on what I’ve seen already. I approve! Lol, I did a little digging and found that they also created a show called, “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.” I love Pride and Prejudice so I will definitely be watching that after I finish watching “Emma Approved.”
I hope you enjoy this show as much as I do. Let me know in the comments what you think. I’d love to hear from you. 🙂
