Season 1 episodes (6)

1 Episode 1
Two rich, eligible and handsome young bachelors gallop into Hertfordshire and into the lives of every hopeful young maiden and her ambitious mama in the neighbourhood. Mr Bingley has bought Netherton Park and has brought his sisters and very wealthy friend, Mr Darcy, with him. To Mrs Bennet at Longbourn House, they are the answer to her prayers. She has five daughters to marry, and their dowries are not large.
2 Episode 2
The Bennets are expecting a visitor -- Mr Bennet's clergyman cousin, who will inherit the estate in the absence of any direct male heirs. Mr Collins is coming to Longbourn with the intention of healing the rift between his branch of the family and the Bennets. Though Mrs Bennet cannot help thinking he has come to check over the place, he arrives with the best of intentions.
3 Episode 3
Less than three days after Mr Collins' proposal to her, Elizabeth is shocked to discover that he has offered for her best friend, Charlotte Lucas, and been accepted. Elizabeth cannot believe Charlotte can demean herself so, but her friend tells her that she cannot afford to be choosy and that Mr Collins is a good catch. The marriage is to be soon, but Charlotte begs her to visit them at Hunsford Parsonage in March.
4 Episode 4
Angry and upset over his rejection, Darcy decides to defend himself. Not every insult she flung at him was fair. He waylays her on her morning walk, hands her a letter and leaves. The contents leave Elizabeth reeling. Wickham, far from being hard done by, was a loose-living scoundrel who had no intention of joining the church and had instead accepted money in compensation. Worse, he had tried to elope with Georgiana, Darcy's 15-year-old sister, just to gain access to her fortune. Darcy had only just arrived in time to foil him. Obviously, Darcy had good cause for his behaviour towards Wickham, but Elizabeth can only shake her head in sorrow and disagreement as she reads that, when he separated Bingley from Jane, he believed her to be indifferent to him.
5 Episode 5
The following day, the Bingleys and Georgiana (Darcy's sister) arrive at Pemberley. Soon after, they call upon Elizabeth, who is staying nearby at the inn in Lambton. The visit is a success: Elizabeth immediately warms to Georgiana and Mr Bingley is clearly delighted to see Elizabeth again.
6 Episode 6
After Lydia is married, she and Wickham come to Longbourn for a visit before joining Wickham's new regiment in the North. She is as silly as ever and very proud of her success in catching Wickham, even offering to get husbands for her sisters. But she accidentally lets slip that Darcy was at her wedding. Elizabeth writes to Mrs Gardiner for an explanation.

About this show

This is the definitive Pride and Prejudice and the most successful TV period drama ever. Starring Colin Firth, Jennifer Ehle and a fabulous supporting cast, this BBC/A&E co-production pulsates with energy as lively, witty Elizabeth Bennet charms smouldering, haughty Darcy against a backdrop of a picture postcard countryside, small-town assembly rooms and stately English homes.

I have binge watched this show too many times! This is a hilarious and amazing show that is appropriate for young ages, although young children may find it hard to follow. It will surprise you!

I want these stories to keep going. Each time i get more wrapped up and dislike the end of the season. Keep it coming.
