PRIDE AND PREJUDICE is the story of the lively and rebellious Elizabeth Bennet, one of five unmarried daughters living in the countryside of 19th-century England. In a world where obtaining an advantageous marriage is a woman's sole occupation, Elizabeth's independent manner threatens her family's future. Will her romantic sparring with the mysterious and arrogant Darcy end in misfortune--or will love's true nature prevail?
For those who enjoy excellent Austen adaptations such as Sense and Sensibility and Persuasion--this miniseries will round out the ultimate Austen library. For those new to these romantic period pieces, this version of Pride and Prejudice will have you hooked and longing for more. One caveat, however: plan to watch it in an entire day, because very few have the self-control to not watch all six hours in a single sitting. --Jenny Brown

And no advertising at the beginning - put it in and it starts.
I think they did a fantastic job restoring this, and this version has addressed the earlier complaints of the yellow or washed out color palate. I have also not noticed the deletion of any scenes from the original on video when it was first released. This is definately the version the collectors to keep.
FOR SOME REASONE AMAZON IS ATTACHING THE REVIEWS FOR THE 2001 DVD EDITION. THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE NEWLY RESTORED VERSION OF APRIL 2010.
I would not have thought that anyone would still be reading the 9 year old review below except for all of the comments ... apparently Amazon has cross-linked the reviews of all editions of this film, making this the 'most helpful critical review'. For those who said that I copied the review - not true. I reviewed a single product, back when we did not even have names attached to our reviews. (My amazon review ID now is "Karl".)
Do buy the BD release - it is wonderful. Five stars. (The 3 stars are not editable and refer to the 1996 release.)
The original 2002 review of the 1996 Special Edition DVD set follows...
This BBC/A&E production is one of the most well made films my wife and I have ever seen - superb acting, costumes, sets and location, music, directing, editing!! Like others here, we have watched the A&E VHS edition over and over. (It is a 'chick flick', but I enjoy romantic movies, too.)
Our excitement over getting the DVD faded upon loading both the VHS tape and DVD and comparing the images and sound. The widescreen image on the DVD is definitely more clear on our 50" high res screen, and it is a pleasure to see the full images framed as the Director intended.
HOWEVER, the colors are not just washed out.Read more ›

|Stop Amazon placing reviews for DVD editions under Blu-Ray titles ?||
Amen !!!! There must be someway that Amazon can filter out reviews that only pertain to the blu-ray editions !!
COME ON AMAZON !!! Help out your customers for a change. ALSO , how about an ALPHABETICAL listing of all your movies instead of just price,release dates, and best selling???

|Restored vs Blu-Ray||
I have both the 2010 Pride and Prejudice (Restored Edition) (DVD) and the 2009 Blu-Ray version. I too was curious, since a lot of Blu-Ray players up convert. But, the Blu-Ray is better, surprisingly. I watched the Restore Edition up to the dance scene where Darcy slights poor Lizy, and the... Read More

|Blu-ray 2009 vs Blu-ray 2010 - What is different?||
Allow me to make a couple of points.
First, it would be insane to release ANY title in Blu-ray with less than 1.78:1 (16:9) aspect ratio, unless the original source was less (e.g. pre-1953 movies). Since no one buys Blu-ray disks for non-HD (non 16:9) TVs, there would be absolutely no point in... Read More

I just finished watching my copy of the Blu-ray U.S. version and it includes all the scenes that Sammie indicates are missing. Maybe he got a defective copy, or more likely, the Blu-ray player he used is not working well. Many of the older Blu-ray players have a well earned reputation as... Read More

|Mr. Darcy (Colin Firth) walking out of the lake||
There is a scene in "Lost in Austen" that has Darcy walking out of the pond. It is not Colin Firth though. It can be viewed on Youtube.
It could also be from a special features segment. I remember watching a segment on the filming of the pond scene and it could be there. I have the... Read More
