Image
Tonight Downton Abbey(co-star asIsobel Crawley) continues itssixth and final season on PBS Masterpiece with Episode 5 at 9/8c.

Downton Abbey, the award-winning series from Julian Fellowes, spans 12 years of gripping drama centered on a great English estate on the cusp of a vanishing way of life. Nearly six years ago, America fell in love with Downton Abbey's Granthams and their family of servants, and has followed them through sweeping change, scandals, love, ambition, heartbreak, and hope ever since. With Julian Fellowes' crackling writing and its stellar ensemble cast led by Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey delivers wit, warmth, passion and a phenomenon that is, at its heart, utterly human. Downton Abbey's final season premieres on Sunday, January 3, 2016 through March 6, 2016 on MASTERPIECE on PBS!

Q&A with Teri Wilson, author of Unleashing Mr. Darcy

Image
After recently getting my audiobook copy (which I loved and enjoyed listening to) and seeing the movie (read my Unleashing Mr. Darcy Movie Review) last Saturday, I had this idea and thought I'd do something different here, which is do a post-movie Q&A with Teri Wilson, author of Unleashing Mr. Darcy, a modern Pride and Prejudice retelling and contemporary romance, turned into an original Hallmark movie of the same name. I loved both her book and movie and I had so many questions I wanted to ask her about them. Though, at first, I wasn't sure if she'll agree to let me do an interview with her (since the movie already premiered last week). Fortunately, I'm in contact with Teri on Twitter and when I asked her about this, she immediately agreed and was happy to answer all my questions (even though I asked too many and she didn't have to, but she didn't mind at all). A big THANK YOU to Teri for taking the time to do this and talking about her book, movie, and f…

New Pride and Prejudice inspired and related movies (Unleashing Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and Bridget Jones's Baby) to see in 2016!

Image
Three new upcoming TV movie and films, inspired of and related to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice are going to be released on TV (Hallmark) and in US Theaters/UK Cinemas whether P&P/Austen fans like them or not. I'll say, a true P&P Fan will watch every adaptation, variations, or inspired of versions of Pride and Prejudice and be open-minded about it/them (or in this case, them...as 3 of them are going to be released this year) whether one likes them or not. For me, I watched them all (well, most of them. See all my , minus these 3 new movies, for now...) as I love watching different versions or interpretations of my favorite P&P characters (especially Elizabeth & Darcy) on screen (big or small). Also, with these new movies related to P&P, it keeps Austen's P&P characters and novel alive. After all, Pride and Prejudice novel is not just a classic masterpiece and almost 203 years old (it turns 203 years this month, Janua…

Pride & Prejudice Movie Fans Twitter Live Tweets on Twitter (Part 9)

Last Wednesday, Joe Wright's 2005Pride & Prejudice movie starring Keira Knightley & Matthew Macfadyen was back on TV twice (but not back-to-back as it usually does) for its first broadcast of the movie in 2016. It was shown on Oxygen channel twice at 6:30 pm and 10:30 pm. The last time it was shown on TV (on Oxygen) was on Christmas Eve 2015 with back-to-back airing, which I missed both times. This would've been part 10, but I'm only posting the ones I got to watch and live tweet with. So, it's part 9, it is. I missed the first half of airing of the movie this past Wednesday, but was able to catch the second half of it. Then, I watched and live tweeted the second airing at 10:30 pm ET. This time, my fellow P&P movie fan and twitter friendRose Fairbanks joined me on an epic and live tweet fest of the movie (along with a few P&P movie fans who join in on the fun), and it was a blast. I had a great time! Thanks Rose.
