BBC's Pride n Prejudice has got to be on e of the best adaptations of all times. 
They had the best best star cast and sets..Since then I have become a huge fan of the screenwriter Andrew Davies... 

Colin Firth was a treat to watch.. the expressions, reactions, and the transformation was simply super... 

Bring on anything P n P .. am up for it.. Smile

This is one adaptation you can call indeed an adaptation. You see, HP has let me down sometimes with the maneuvering of the books in the movies and so has the 2005 P&P movie, this hasn't. This is precisely the book's, and might I add - wondrously enacted! Naturally, now when I read P&P, I have these characters in my head, and their benchmark expressions!

I am with you on this.. I read n visualize the actors in the scenes.. they were just too good.. PnP 2005 was a huge let down...for me personally BBCs PnP is the best we have had and we will have, its been immortalized.. Mrs. Bennett , Mr. Collins, Miss.Bingley , Lydia, Wickham, Miss Darcy were all cast to perfection.. 

I have read many a books which have been adapted but nothing comes close.. the other classic which I like best and was adapted fabulously is North & South...

^^^ If there is anything like a reader's block, I am suffering that because my head's not registering any book that isn't J.K Rowling's these days. I am in many ways obsessed with Harry Potter so, I cannot claim to be a regency fanatic anymore. Ouch

However, you know? P&P 2005 is beautiful, it has its BITS of manipulation but it comes around. I have had worse in the name of P&P, like Bride and Prejudice, heard of it, one that has Aishwarya Rai? Anyway, so that's horrible, but somehow its association with the book does not make me hate it. Confused
