In our final episode re: Pride and Prejudice, our heroes wax poetic on why Charlotte Collins (nee Lucas) may NOT have made such a lousy choice of husband after all. Brandon compares P&P to Shakespeare, Jake compares Darcy to Boaz, and Nathan hopes to toss the old pigskin with Jane Austen one day.
Then everybody hates on that awful Keira Knightley movie, which they all correctly and sensibly despise as the piece of utterly worthless garbage that it is, effectively saying to the movie,”Could you expect us to rejoice in the inferiority of your Darcy?—to congratulate ourselves on the hope of watching a movie whose hero is so decidedly beneath the novel’s?”
Look at that picture up there. Look at that chump they got to play Darcy. Ugh.
