Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Delightful! Please don't be deterred by the cheap-looking credits or Amanda's 00s look; everything else looks good, and the show is incredibly fun. It has many surprises in store - which you'll enjoy a lot more if you're familiar with the novel, of course - as well as a great cast. It basically offers the viewer the best of both worlds: we're still in that Regency world we all adore, except this has a lot more shenanigans and a lot less broodiness and "manners" than you'll find in the source material... A pretty perfect combination, if you ask me. :)
