I saw this and literally thought, "No. Absolutely not. No way."

I'm so glad I clicked anyway. Surprisingly good fun.

She seems like what the little girl from Terry Gilliam's "Tideland" might have grown up into if her family life had been a little bit better. Lizzie's diary logo even looks a little like the tree on the "Tideland" poster.

i don't get it. is this fake? or is it real? it seems to fake to be real, and to boring to be fake.

It's a produced web series retelling the story of Pride & Prejudice. Sorry, I thought the title and tags made that clear.

I liked it, and the credits make it clear that a bunch of unrelated redheaded actresses play the sisters.

Oh, that Lizzie Bennett. Sigh. I am out of touch.

I've been enjoying the show with my daughters. My youngest made this ringtone and I made this animated gif, both from our favorite scene.

I couldn't get past 5 seconds, the actress annoyed me so. Could be an amusing concept, though.

Worth noting that Hank Green, one half of the vlogbrothers, is one of the co-creators.
