Hey y'all,

Happy Holidays to those who celebrate and a Very Merry Almost 2021 to those who don't! Enclosed within is our gift to you, in a matter of speaking: The first of four (five, for Patreon members!) episodes on the rom-com classic, Bridget Jones's Diary. Listen on for our thoughts on patriarchal bullshit, the devious hotness of asshole Hugh Grant, and paddle-pools. 

This podcast, and thus all of you, have been such a huge and wonderful part of a shitty year. Thanks for listening. We hope you're well and safe, and so are those you love.

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,

Ugggggggggggggggh, this is not a good movie. It's not even really a Pride and Prejudice adaptation. But we had a great time talking about it all the same, especially because we were joined by a dear old friend—the goddess, the legend, the reality television almuna, Elise Mayfield. Elise's audio cut out in the last few minutes, but she had just made a joke so good that we couldn't excise that section entirely — you'll know when you get to that point. Elise is the Development Manager of Birmingham's Red Mountain Theatre Company, and she's also the co-host of Terrific New Theatre's interview series Who's Zoomin' In? You can follow her on Instagram; she is the fuckin' best, and yes, her hand pies are good.

Back next week! Happy holidays!

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,

Well, something had to follow our beloved BBCPPAE, so it may as well be the 1940 Pride & Prejudice Laurence Olivier/Greer Garson-starring adaptation, a.k.a. the one with the snack sleeves. Listen on for our thoughts on leftover Gone With the Wind costumes, Aldous Huxley, and sexy sexy archery.

Next week is the 2018 Hallmark "adaptation," Christmas At Pemberley Manor. It's not good! 

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,

It's the end of the road (for now, at least) for the 1995 BBC/A&E miniseries adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, and we have thoughts. Consider this our farewell to Colin's calves (also for now—those calves are forever). 

Next week, it's Laurence Olivier and Greer Garson's turn! 

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,

Please read these notes! You will need them! 

As you'll hear, this episode comes with a visual aid. You can find Keenan's PowerPoint here. You can see a picture of a bourdaloue here. As for our amazing guests, you can find them on Twitter here and here

Two other quick notes: First, you'll notice some weird audio things here. We had some tech issues but the episode was just too good to scrap over weird sound stuff, so please bear with us. We think you'll agree it's worth it. And second, since we recorded, Syfy Fangrrls, one of Emma's most frequent outlets, has sadly shuttered. (Media is dying, please buy a freelance journalist a donut today!) But you can still find her work, and the work of the other incredible writers who worked for that publication, elsewhere.

Next time, we wrap up the miniseries as a whole. Thanks for listening!

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine
