Jane Austen meets Cold Play

I've been watching the Jane Austen adaptations on PBS over the past few weeks. At the end of the shows, Masterpiece has been airing a promo set to Cold Play's "Fix You." It's such an odd combination--Jane Austen and Cold Play--but I think it totally works.

Next up is the BBC adaptation of Emma (seen it, own the DVD) and then sometime in April, the new adaptation of Sense and Sensibility. I'm very much looking forward to that one, even though there'll never be a better Colonel Brandon than Alan Rickman. ::sappy sigh::

(Which reminds me, my nieces totally don't get my passion for Severus Snape).

Oh, Alan Rickman! *dreamy eyes* I love me some Snape too! Your nieces don't know what they are missing! LOL

I am LOVING the Jane Austen Masterpiece series! I adored Northanger Abbey, and I liked the new versions of Persuasion and Mansfield Park well enough, but they're not my favorite Austen books. The heroines are too passive. I own Emma, too. Can't wait for S&S, though Alan Rickman is most definitely the bomb. Hmmm, maybe I need to watch it again....
