Fangirl Confessions | The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, Five Years Later

Friday, April 13, 2018

Today, we're throwing it back to one of the most popular Youtube serials ever. Or it is in my experience. That pop culture series happens to by The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

Fangirl Confessions | The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

If you've never seen it, you'd be in the same place I was in at the height of the vlog-style web series. Despite its popularity, and the fact that everyone (or it seemed so) on my Twitter timeline was gushing over its charms, I refused to watch it. For no reason in particular except that I didn't really want to be pulled into another fangirl addiction. 

Time passed, and still I didn't click the big red "play" button. Until, finally I did. 

The rest, as they say, is history. I was addicted. 

(Also, it's worth noting, I still swoon when I see a certain gif with the hashtag #Dizzie.)

Needless to say, following that first episode (which is way too short!), I binge-watched the series, and even wrote a fangirl post (way back in 2013) in the aftermath of those first few episodes that shares my impressions of the series. A love that only grew as I continued on with the series. On March 28th of this year, the series marks five years since it concluded. Five years. Where does time go? And also, could this cast please reprise their roles for a kind of reunion series? This is a thing in today's entertainment culture. Why can't it also apply to this series?

In celebration of the series five years later Twitter campaign party, over on Silver Petticoat, I remember the series, and one reason why it's so missed. Hint: it may or may not involve Mr. Darcy.

It seems hard to believe, but six years ago, on April 9, 2012, a little Youtube Vlog series debuted.   The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.

At the time, the social media scene was alight with anticipation for each new installment. And while numerous bookworm friends were gushing over this web series (spun off of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice), I abstained. Months went by and still, I refused to be sucked into that pop culture vortex. And, in fact, it wasn’t until months after that first installment until finally, I caved.I hit the big red arrow button on its Youtube channel and settled in for the first installment of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.
