Sorry I got distracted from the programme last time round but this week we have the final four episodes, and it seems fitting one of the most romantic stories of all time should end on this particular day, so lets crack on…
Last week ended with Lizzie calling Darcy but we heard no reply, we know Darcy will appear again but it does seem strange in this age that there has been no contact. Back in Austen’s day of course contact would have been restricted by social conventions and a lack of opportunity but in the modern world with texts, tweets and emails you would have expected the odd message even if nothing overtly personal. The same way she calls him and leaves a voicemail, personally I think it would have been more realistic if she had texted him, we all like to avoid the awkwardness and a text makes it easier to delay speaking to those you don’t wish to and finding out if someone wishes to speak to you in return.
Darcy of course does eventually appear, and we find ourselves in the position of missing the action, he appears at the end of number 98 and then in 99 he states they have been in a relationship 6 days, this actually makes a really valid point about Youtube video’s and vlogs and the fact they are the edited highlights of a life not the full view. A person could make a video and claim it was made in one sitting when really it took them a week and was carefully edited to appear flawless ( mine aren’t sadly I am just not that skilled lol)
The final video is quite touching and it is hard to know if it is the characters or actress talking. I have really enjoyed this series and look forward to watching some of the others though I have no intention of watching them this way.
I hope you guys have enjoyed it, next week a final bonus to round this series off properly.
