Austen done wrong

The AustenBlog readers are still giving the recent BBC adaptation of Emma an overwhelming thumbs-down, and while I'm sorry to hear the show is so sucky I've been enjoying their complaints, which range from general griping about the actors to super-specific problems with the settings, characterizations, and script. (The writer apparently took out the "We are not brother and sister line", which *is* kind of a shocker.) I'm no longer sure I'll watch adaptation when it comes out here in the States, but seeing all these devoted Austen fans up in arms has been a delight to behold, so I suppose I should be grateful for the entertainment it has already provided me....
