Is anyone watching the adaptation of "Sanditon" written by Andrew Davies, and currently playing on PBS in the USA? If so, what do you think?

I am a huge Jane Austen fanatic. And given some of the comments I've seen on the boards recently, I know I'm not alone. Perhaps we might want to start discussing the books after the holiday/new year insanity has settled down? Including the juvenalia--I think Love and Freindship (sic) is one of the funniest things I've ever read! If interested or you have any ideas for a book discussion, feel free to chime in.
Me too. I read all his books (I have them in my library), I saw all the movies and series made over the years starting with Laurence Olivier as Mr. Darcy. I visited his memorial house in Chawton Village twice and I am fascinated by the time he lived. Pride and Prejudice is the first movie and book I saw and read when I was a teenager, a long time ago. Then there were Emma, Ellinor and Marianne, Persuasion, etc. By chance I came across Northanger Abbey in an antique shop and read it in two days. Was awesome. When I became an adult I tried to read absolutely everything about Jane Austen like a person. Beautiful times

my favorite Jane Austin novels are Emma and Persuasion... not really sure why except they seem to me to be closest to the human condition
I love reading about the woman herself, her life. Has anyone seen the film “Becoming Jane”? A biography of sorts with Anne Hathaway and James MacAvoy. Loved it tho lots of license taken with the facts
My favorite “Emma” film btw is the Kate Beckensale version....
