1. What period dramas did you view in January?
January was a good month for period dramas at my house! I watched the 2009 Emma around my birthday, and later saw the Imitation Game, The Magic of Ordinary Days, and the King's Speech.
I really need to brush up on my Dickens films; most of them are murky memories from seeing them on TV when I was 7 or 8. I recently saw BBC's Nicholas Nickleby 2001, however, and that was really good. I think it's an incredibly underrated movie. Perhaps I'll re-watch it and do a review on it!
3. Would you rather visit Pemberley (Mr. Darcy's residence) or Downton Abbey (Crawley family residence)? Why?
That's really tough! I'm sure Highclere Castle has a great blend of old rooms and furnishings, but I feel that since it's so overly-popular right now, I'll go with the Georgian-era Pemberley. :)
4. If you could be any character in a Jane Austen novel for a whole day who would you be and why would you want to be that character?
This deserves an essay or novel, not a short answer! After much deliberation, I chose...Mary Bennet! Just Kidding! ;) I suppose I shouldn't tease the poor dear. Anyway, I think it would be neat if I were Georgiana Darcy, so I could be wealthy and accomplished, and live in Pemberley and have a piano. :) Jane Bennet is a tempting option as well, since she is so sweet and kind. Agh, the choices!
5. What period dramas are you looking forward to viewing in February 2016?
Where to start? I think there's an endless list of "to-watch" period dramas floating around in my head at all times. I'm hoping to see The Young Victoria soon, and maybe an old musical like Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.
