Well, I’m home from a lovely visit to Orange County and Los Angeles. Yes, we went to Disneyland. Yes, we stopped by Kiyonna. Yes, I bought something. One dress. ONLY ONE. Really.
Anyway, here’s the latest scoop on Emma, which wrapped last night on Masterpiece Classic:
If you were one of the #emma_pbs Twitter winners from last week, make sure you follow me/respond to my direct message so I can get your mailing info to the good folks at PBS.org and so you can get your awesome Jane Austen action figure. 😀 Remember, I’m @magicskyway.
I scored Mr. Knightley on the “Bachelors of Highbury” Quiz at the Emma website. I’m not surprised, for he will always be my number-one fictional crush. Ha! “You might not see one in a hundred with gentleman so plainly written as in Mr. Knightley.”
That’s right, Emma 4’s U.S. debut is nearly upon us, ocurring on PBS between January 24 – February 7, 2010! Check here to confirm your local PBS station schedule.
WGBH’s official Emma site is chock full of interesting bits and bobs, including an audio slideshow, an interview with show writer Sandy Welch, a character quiz, and more! From January 25 – March 9, 2010, the miniseries itself will also be available to stream directly via the Masterpiece Classic Emma site.
I keep promising more “normal” fashion stuff and then never deliver. This is mainly because I end up posting everything at the Dims fashion board and then promptly forget this blog exists. So, in an attempt to rectify this continuous, egregious error, I give you…MY REALLY FREAKING OLD JEWELRY COLLECTION. Okay, so maybe that isn’t “normal,” but at the very least it doesn’t involve me in a corset. So there. (Click the jumplink below the pic for the whole article. )
This blog is a hodgepodge, so i figure I should adapt it for more gloriously random uses. I think I’ll start posting some of the outfits I slap up on various fashion communities. I will also endeavor to post the interesting media (or not-so-interesting media) that I’m always slapping up on Facebook. And other stuff. I promise.
I first published this review in October of 2009 when Emma aired on the BBC, so some of the links and broadcast references will be out of date.
I apologize for lagging on the latest updates, but I’m pretty sure I’m only inconveniencing maybe three people, all of whom have actually watched the adaptation already. Industry, patience, blah blah blah. ANYWAY.
My initial enthusiasm for this adaptation has not only returned, it has been surpassed. Episode one showed promise, episode two was a teense off-putting, episode three brought the excitement back, and episode four hit the ball out of the park!
