Austen purists will probably revile this witty adaptation/revision of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, but fans of Austen who aren't too particular and enjoy some liberties taken with Austen's works [in the interest of fun and entertainment] will find lots to enjoy in ITV's four-part series "Lost in Austen".

Jemima Rooper stars as Amanda Price, who is an avid fan of Austen's novel Pride and Prejudice and who yearns for the romance experienced by Darcy and Elizabeth. One day, she is flabbergasted to find Elizabeth Bennet[Gemma Arterton] herself facing her in her bathroom. Apparently, there is a 'magical' door through her bath wall that is able to transport Lizzie from Meryton to contemporary London. Before long, Amanda gleefully wanders through the portal into Lizzie's house with all its chaos, and life as Amanda knows it will never again be the same.

Amanda tries her best to get the other characters from P&P to follow through on the novel's plot, a situation made difficult by Lizzie's absence [glibly explained away as visiting Hammersmith, Amanda's home]. Mr Bingley in the meantime finds Amanda more interesting than Jane, and things get more complicated when Amanda meets Mr Darcy[a suitably brooding and haughty, yet drool-worthy Elliott Cowan]. Though Amanda finds Darcy interesting and attractive, his rudeness towards her is irksome, and the pair are soon engaged in witty verbal sparring.

The dialogue is part of what makes this production so entertaining. At one point, Jane is ill and ensconced in Bingley's country estate, and Darcy asks that Amanda leave. Bingley protests, saying 'She has paracetamols!' [paracetamol being the British equivalent of our Tylenol, or other fever-reducing medications].

I am a huge BBC Pride and Prejudice fan and consider this my favorite book of all time. I was so incredibly surprised at how well this series was done, delving into each character's background and personality...made me love them all so much more. Such a great addition to my P&P collection. I enjoyed the humor and BBC movie reenactments, and I burst out laughing MANY times.
Well worth the $5.99 to own.

Rented it through Netflix, liked it so much that I came to Amazon to buy it.
There are deleted scenes on youtube, as well!! (Amanda Price sings!)

I went in not expecting anything, and stayed up very late because I was immeadiately sucked in and would rather stay with Amanda in her "Lost in Austen" adventure than go anywhere else.
This is just a pure delight for any P&P fans! However, don't watch if you're not familiar with the original story.

I am a Jane Austen buff and this movie/series did not disappoint! It is a terrific comedy and the heroine works so hard to keep all the characters true to their parts from Janes's books. It also has some drama besides the laughs and love stories.

If you love Mr. Darcy ( and who doesn't) and all of the Bennett sister's schemes, as well as true BBC productions, this will not disappoint you. It's well worth watching....enjoy :-)

My personal P.S.I have loved anything Gemma has acted in as well.

I stumbled on this and fully didn't expect to like it--a lot of things with an Austen focus are superficial, predictable versions of the same old romantic boy vs. girl stories. I found this to be interestingly done and fun to watch. It kind of gives us a history lesson about a time period that we have definitely romanticized. And I like that the lead character comes in with a superior, condescending attitude because she believes living further down the timeline gives her greater intelligence, understanding, etc. (when what she really has is gadget and technology knowledge). She finds the people to be more than a match for her, in fact capable of revealing her own shortcomings to her. That gave the story more layers and more truth and made it more enjoyable to me. I'm glad I stumbled on it.

I fell in love with Pride and Prejudice after first reading the book in college, and was happy to find the movie adaptations of the book well done. But outside of the original story I have been generally disappointed in adaptations and fan fiction. Despite trying a few books about the characters, I never made it past the first chapter due to poor writing or drastic liberties in the eras culture.

That was until a friend forced me to watch this mini series with here. I was instantly in love again! The original characters stay similar to those in the book (with the exception of Whickham, but it works), and the new characters are funny and intriguing. Any fan of the book will find themselves staring wishing for a magic door to open in their house.

For those that do not know the original story, I would suggest reading or watching the original first. Although the story would still be entertaining and enjoyable, a lot of the quality would be lost.

This series is wonderful, but I have a question: is this an abridged version? I saw a clip of the character Amanda Price singing "Downtown" on YouTube but it is not included in this episode that I purchased.
