On TV Tonight: Pride and Prejudice (Mini-series) on PBS

Classic TV

EW Magazine (Feb. 22, issue #979 with Tyra Banks on the cover) lists P&P '95 BBC mini-series as one to watch tonight!

Pride and Prejudice (PBS, TV-PG)

Last week's saw Mr. Darcy's (Colin Firth) infamous, impetuous, totally-not-in-the-book swan dive into the pond, but the meat of Andrew Davies' 1995 adaptation of Jane Austen's seminal work doesn't come until tonight's conclusion. It's a hot and bothered as ever - Elizabeth Bennet's (Jennifer Elle) twitty little sister runs off with a creep - but part 3 is about mature love. That hardly sounds romantic, but maturity is what elevates this P&P above modern rom-coms, even as it inspires them. It gives the story something most of its anticedents only aspire to: a well-earned happy ending. A *check your local listings for time
