Yes, I know I’m sooo late to the party. But I made up for it by watching all 100 episodes—just about five minutes each—in four days! For those who are as late to the party as I am, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is a web series based on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.

Basically, Lizzie the single grad student vlogs about her life. It’s still got Austen canon like Lizzie’s mom’s eternal struggle to marry off her daughters, but it also has the coolest modern twists: Mr. Bingley is now Mr. Bing Lee (gedditttt), Darcy’s a corporate hipster, and more. I love how they modernized Charlotte and Mr. Collins’ “arrangement,” the George and Lydia debacle, and all kinds of other stuff I don’t want to spoil.

If you haven’t read Pride and Prejudice or seen the Keira Knightley movie, I suggest you Wikipedia the original plot so you can better appreciate all the little twists. And when you do decide to watch LBD, make sure you’ve got pillows to hug and to muffle your kilig squeals. I was not prepared for how life-ruining it was, so I found myself flailing, running around my room, and screaming at my laptop in the dead of the night, waking up not a few neighbors. Oh, and go to the bathroom before you start watching! Umm, gross tip, but I promise you won’t be able to tear yourself away for hours.

In case you need more convincing, here are Lizzie and Darcy looking ADORABLE at LBD events.
