Genre: Romance.
Costumes: 9, Once again the costumes are marvelous! Especially the ball scene. There is a scene where Lydia is asking Lizzy if she should where this one dress, and she is only in her 'undergown'. Lydia thought it was hilarious.
My Favorite:
The one in my header.

Quotes: 10, "Ah! You look very well Lizzy! You will never be as pretty as your sister Jane, but I will say you look pretty well indeed."

  1. Okay, but the cheesy Mr. Collins grin -- it never fails to make me giggle. Nice job on another ep review!

    1. Haha, that is so true! It is so very Mr. Collins, one would know exactly what you were referring to even without the picture above. xD
