AustenBlog informs me there's another Sense and Sensibility update in the works, this one apparently destined for TV Movie-of-the-Week status. The whole production looks pretty bad, but I was particularly concerned by three things: one, the "brooding into buckets of ice cream" scene appears to feature off-brand ice cream (what, they couldn't shell out for Ben and Jerry's?); two, the voiceover sounds almost comically low-budget, like they just asked the camera grip with the clearest voice to read it through; and three, why did they wait to introduce the whole "scents" pun until the last ten seconds of the trailer?
