I think that Andrew Davies and the producers did a fantastic job with Sanditon, considering the meager source material Jane Austen wrote before she left the novel unfinished (as those 11 chapters are mostly covered within the first episode). I think that the romance is on the same level as Elizabeth and Darcy, with hate-to-love romance and undeniable chemistry between Charlotte and Sidney. The overarching plot of developing Sanditon is fascinating, since it is so different than anything I've read or watched before; it adds drama and opportunities for fascinating scenes and characters, and the burgeoning industrial revolution is something I have not seen before in an Austen adaptation. There is truly nothing I want more than at least a second season of Sanditon, since I truly think it deserves it. The character arcs in this season (especially Charlotte's, Sidney's, and Esther's) were incredible and I can imagine how far their characters can go in a future season. I do want to say that the first episode isn't the best, but the rest of the season completely surpasses it. I feel more emotionally impacted by this series than by any other period drama I've seen (of which I have seen many), even some of my favorites. I highly recommend that period drama fans and newbies to the genre check out this fantastic show and fall in love with it just as I did.

Great TV show. The fact that it's only based on an unfinished Austin novel has some advantages because it allowed the producers the freedom to incorporate some modern themes (this is not really a period drama) while preserving the general feel of an Austin novel.
