Jane Austen Love
For the next few months PBS is running "The Complete Jane Austen" series. For anyone else who is a nut for Austen books and films this is a no brainer. The shows air on Sunday evenings (West Coast at 9pm). Last week was Persuasion, this week Northanger Abbey, followed next week with Mansfield Park. Some of these are new adaptations for Masterpiece. In April when the series concludes, I highly recommend the films "Becoming Jane" and "The Jane Austen Book Club" to complete your obsession. It's all comfort food for the romantically disabled!
