I’m watching all the episodes I missed when being sick and having no energy, and I’m watching them in the order I missed them. That means I’m watching the whole thing as a marathon, but with the second DVD (episode 4-6) first. I’m at episode 5 now, and my idea for this blog is to make a list of subjects to cover in future blogs. I’ll link to the blog posts once I’ve written them!
Leave a comment if you want to help me pick which subjects to choose!
Coming blog post ideas
- Tours of mansions and “great houses”
- Money, money, money
- Entertainment and pastime
- Pride, prejudice and parody
- Kitty as the forgotten sister (this subject has already been done by Drunk Austen, but it’s a good one!)
- Regency travelling
- Books and adaptations (Edit: I did a post about adaptations)
- Fashion plates, 2nd edition (due to seeing the walking sticks/canes the men have as an accessory rather than necessity)
- More on clothes (because most of this site is about historical clothing and textile crafts!) And also: Where is Jane’s blue gown?
- Something about the Making-of Documentary
- The scene with Lizzie, Jane, Mary, Mr. Collins, and Kitty all being the essence of their characters in episode 5
- Servants and the service “industry” (Hill, Sarah, Hannah at the Lambton Inn, the other unnamed characters making the households and inns possible)
- Ok, I think I’ve got enough ideas for the nine days to come…
If you want to catch up with someone who’s powered through illness like a heroic boss and written blog posts in a better and more consistent way than I have, visit Drunk Austen and read the episode reviews! I’ve linked to the reviews of the first episodes, but it’s the last review post – which makes perfect sense to me since I’m watching the flipped marathon!
