Emma miniseries

Have you been watching Emma, the new PBS miniseries? It started last Sunday night, and it's AMAZING. Emma is so charming and adorable with her gossip and matchmaking, and the show stays really true to the book. And don't worry if you missed the first episode; you can watch it online here. I absolutely love it!


Joanna Goddard said...

ps. mr. knightley is also smoking hot.

Becs said...

I love Emma! Mr. Knightley is my favourite of Austen's men, and Emma is such good inspiration for when your screw up and need to fix it.

Mouse said...

Exciting! I love a good Austen miniseries when it's cold outside.

Risti Megan said...

I saw that it was on but I didn't watch it. Now that I know it has Romola Garai as Emma, I'll be watching.

Rachel Dangerfield said...

So sad I missed it! And SO glad I can watch it online! Add this to the weekend fun list... I've certainly been in need of some relaxing time :)

bekapirwitz said...

Oh my gosh! I am so excited to hear about this show. I JUST started reading Emma. Reading Jane Austen's famous works is on my list of things I want to accomplish this semester. Thanks so much for sharing it!

jjparks said...

I'm excited to watch! I'm not really excited about any of the shows that I used to love anymore (i.e. Grey's, Lost, ect...) so I've been looking for some replacements to get into.

mariska said...

ohh,,never heard that series before,
i wonder,,

umm,gotta check it out then!

thx for share!


Hodge Podge said...

Thank you, thank you!! I wanted to see this and didn't realize it already started. I'm going to have to catch up so I can watch it this Sunday!

mindy said...

ooh, is that johnny lee miller i see?

Kwana said...

I've been watching and loving it too.

Caroline, No. said...

Romola Garai is just so luminous! Love it.

Joanna Goddard said...

mindy, YES! he is SO amazing. and jjparks, i felt the same way.

Bonnie said...

Yes! The first part was good. The leads are really good. I saw on the Jane Austen Today blog that when it premiered in the UK in October it received scathing reviews. I am really enjoying it!

Blue12rain said...

Love it. I've been enjoying it too. Yay for the return of Austen.

Lindsay said...

I started to watch it at a friends house but had to leave shortly after. What I saw of it was so good though!

Machanguita said...

Oh! I can't watch it because I'm out of US :(

sb said...

oh! be still my jane austen heart...i adore this wonderful new show as much as i love gwenyth in the film.

i'm rereading sense & sensibility for the umpteenth time, and a dash of emma is an absolute delight :)

thank you for spreading the jane austen love!

I'm from the uk and I watched the first episode in october and HATED it... I'm a huge fan of romola garai in other movies as well as jane austen, pride and prejudice etc but I thought this version of emma was terrible actually and didn't watch any more episodes, the script is very wooden and all very cliched. just my opinion though! It is very pretty to look at

Stephanie said...

It is pretty great, isn't it? Although I do think Gwyneth Paltrow made a darn good Emma, I can't resist Jonny Lee Miller. I have loved him ever since he was Sickboy.

The Glamorous Housewife said...

I watched it on Tuesday after my Lasik. It was the perfect 'do nothing' movie. Can't wait for the second half!

Thanks doll,
The Glamorous Houswife

Sal said...

Hurrah! I missed the first installment, but will TOTALLY watch it online.

Christina said...

I want to check it out. Thanks for the tip!

Michelle Parks McCourt said...

yes, I watched it last night having dvred it. great series.

Hip Hip Gin Gin said...

YES! Love it! I think I prefer this one to the Gwyneth version.
And thanks for posting this, I was feeling like the only nerd in the world who still watches PBS!

Joanna Goddard said...

wow, bonnie, i'm so surprised! i totally adore it.

Emily @ said...

Jonny Lee Miller as Mr. Knightley is the most inspired casting choice since Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy.

Brandi said...

This mini-series is so very good. I caught it a few months ago on the BBC website and am just obsessed. The whole cast is so handsome and I love the story and filming (and costumes and sets...)

charlotte said...

I live in NL and have BBC so I was able to watch it in October. I looooved it: great costumes, updated dialogue, fantastic casting, beautiful colors. Whats not to like?

Anonymous said...

I love this,too! It is the best "Emma" I have seen!

Laine & Jesse said...

Emma is delightful. It threw me at first because Johnny Lee Miller plays Edmund Bertram in Mansfield Park. I love any mini-series of Jane Austen's work or Dickens' or almost any period piece. So good!

Anonymous said...

I saw it on BBC a few months ago and I absolutely cringed! It was terribly miscast and the script was appalling. All good actors normally but so wrong for this production. Just terrible!

Louise said...

Yes, it was on in the UK just before Christmas and I absolutely loved it! The actress playing Emma is ever so sweet in this :) xx

The Neo-Traditionalist said...

I can't believe I missed it!? I'm one of those freaks without a TV, but will have to check iTunes pronto to see if they have it. Emma is one of my all time favorite books. I remember the wedding you posted about in which they quoted the end of the story---I'm so smitten I think we may do the same in our upcoming nuptials. Thank you for your never ending inspiration Joanna!

Carrie said...

Funny you just posted this today, I downloaded it off AppleTV since my husband was out of town last night. It left me giddy! For all Johnny Lee Miller fans, make sure to check him out in Mansfield Park!

Emily said...

Ahhh! This looks AMAZING! I adore Emma and all things Jane Austen! I didn't even know this was on so thanks for the tip! I have always preferred Mr. Knightley to many of Austen's men (even Mr. Darcy, I must admit)!

Melissa Blake said...

Eeeek! Can't believe I didn't know about this!!

Mireya said...

I fell asleep watching this...I'm so glad I'll be able to catch it online! Thanks for sharing :)

kay: said...

i hadn't heard! thanks for posting!!

Anonymous said...

This one looks very pretty and I like Romola but was really quite unhappy with this adaptation and thought it not true to the book at all. A couple characters who only get incidental coverage in the book are suddenly pretty big players in the show. Thought the writing was sloppy indeed.

I think the best adaptation of Emma to this day is Clueless.

Johnny Lee Miller is pretty cute howevs.

Foteini P. said...

I love Jane Austen!!!!!!!
Another Emma adaptation!!!
Hurray!!!!!! :) :) :) :)

La Belle Lumière said...

This is so funny, I JUST read about the mini-series last night and was bummed that I missed the beginning!

So happy to hear that I can catch up online!

jociegal said...

Oh wow - I am totally going to have to watch this. Since the days of their Pride and Prejudice, I have LOVED me a good Jane Austin mini-series.

The Zhush said...

How in the world did I ever miss this?
Thanks (and so glad I can catch up!)

Ms. X said...

I loved it! It's much different than the Kate Beckinsale version I own, but I like it. It might have something to do with Jonny Lee Miller playing Mr. Knightley.

nina said...

i really enjoyed this series. it's so cute. it also reignited my love for jonny lee miller! the man's still got it!

Joanna said...

I'm not sure if I can watch this version of Emma and knock Gwyneth Paltrow from my mind; the 1996 film is really hard to beat. I like Romola Garai in other films, but I just can't see her as Emma here.

Ruxandra said...

oh, this is such a relief that i can watch it online:)

The Boob Nazi said...

I can't forget Romola Garai from Atonement. That character made me hate her forever.

Eugy said...

Thanks so much for sharing! I don't have tv so I'm so excited we can watch online!

Sally said...

Enjoyed it with the same reservations that many have...but adorable & charming, Emma is not supposed to be...not in the way one thinks. Yikes.

Miriam said...

I watched the whole thing online in December. And yes, I'm watching it again! Emma is my favorite Jane Austen novel, and I have liked Romola Garai ever since she was in I Capture the Castle.

I'm trying to remember to watch Masterpiece Theater every week, not just when there's a Jane Austen miniseries on. The shows are always so good, and it makes for such a relaxing Sunday night!

Anonymous said...

i love this version of emma!

Jamie said...

ha was that dumbledore?? i beleive it was :) i will have to watch this, i love the story.

HereBeDragons said...

Yes. Yes I have! Very fun this series.

hannah said...

it's killing me, the wait until next sunday! and yes, i am madly in love with johnny lee miller right now.

Heather said...

YAY!!!! I LOVE Jane Austen!!

Emma (seriously, that's my actual name) said...

Ooh no, I couldn't stand it when it was on over here! I usually like Romola Garai but could not understand why she seemed to be playing Emma with constantly bulging eyes. Mr Knightly was just wrong as well - seemed far too young and they set up the whole love-thing between them far too early. Emma is such a hard one to get right, which is a shame.

sarah said...

oooh looks good. thanks for sharing.

LindaSol said...

i love it! totally perfect with a blanket and a cup of tea!

Line said...

I love this version of emma. especially johnny lee miller as mr. knightly, I'm a big fan.
yay for jane austen!

paula said...

ohh, I cant wait to watch!

Lindsay said...

OMG! im so excited to watch this!

Simply Grove said...

Yay!!! I didnt even know that this was on PBS right now! I am thrilled beyond expression!

Paulina said...

I've totally been watching this!!!! I love PBS masterpiece theatre!!!! I netflixed the pbs miniseries of Jane Eyre, and even my husband (who hadn't read it, loved it!!!)

NellElizabeth said...

I was so excited when I saw this - I DVRed it immediately. Love PBS!

Things That Can Fly said...

Austen in any form is comforting, but I actually wasn't completely crazy about this version of Emma. I liked the Paltrow version so much better. Not to be a stickler but some people said it here - I didn't like the way Romola Garai played her. And Johnny Lee Miller was way too young to play Mr. Knightley.

Phoenix said...

Um...if that's Johnny Lee Miller behind her I am ALL OVER that.

I've crushed on him since Hackers. (He was Angelina Jolie's first husband!)

emilia. said...

yes! yes! yes!
this year's masterpiece season looks spectacular!
ohh mr. knightly is so drool worthy!


Crafty Hands said...

Thanks for the heads up! =D

Agent AKA said...

i love pbs and emma!
both together works so well. yay!

abigail said...

I loved the Pride and Prejudice series from a few years ago. I'm sure I'll love this too!

The Gourmet Traveller said...

oooh...I loved this version of Emma! I thought that it was so much better than the Gwyneth version. Ps. I saw Romola on stage in London last night, and she was fabulous!

mo-mo said...

I'm watching it too, and love it!!

p.s. Did you see the Little Dorritt miniseries last year? I highly recommend it. I absolutely loved it. I had never heard of the book (by Dickens) so wasn't going to watch it, but so glad I did!

Fashion Cappuccino said...

It's one of my favorite Jane Austen's books ever!! I love masterpiece theatre!! So good!! xoxoxoxoxo

Erin Elizabeth said...

I did manage to catch this, but fell asleep before the episode ended; thank you for posting the link so I can catch up on the bit I missed! And, Mr. Knightly is seriously hot...he always is in any Emma version!

Brooke Premo said...

Oh yes, I will watch that because it appears that Dumbledore is in it.

Katie said...

I saw it when it was on in the UK and it's brilliant! Although I've seen the film adaptation with Gwyneth Paltrow so many times that it was weird seeing other people playing the characters.

Laura Fenton said...

Joanna, Mr. Knightley is cute, but I wish he were as cute at Col. Brandon in the last PBS Austen series--swoon!

Pretty Mommy said...

Yes!! I'm a total sucker for anything period and JAne Austen...setting my Tivo...

aukergirl said...

we've been watching too! i really love romola garai, she was stunning in daniel deronda!


goose and bear said...

yay! Thank you for posting this...I missed the first installment and have to catch up before this weekend!

I have such an attachment to PBS movies. I started watching Dr. Zhivago the weekend before my daughter Lucy was born and finished it up the next weekend with her sleeping in my arms. It's recorded in her baby book as her first movie :)

kate said...

Am I the only one who preferred the Kate Beckinsale version of Emma to the Paltrow one?

slinny said...

Did you see The Young Victoria? So good and same feel as Emma!


Michely Medeiros. said...

i saw the previews and it looks really good

Alena said...

I forgot to watch it even though I had PBS send me an email reminder! Actually, I'm in the middle of reading it right now. I've gotten through 3/4 of the work!


Daniel & Liesel said...

oh wow!! thanks for passing the word on...I will def check it out.


sarah lynn said...

Emma is one of my favorites- I read it last year for the first time. And I actually did come across this a few days ago, but had no idea it was a new miniseries! Now I'm excited :]

wabi said...

I watched the whole series on youtube a couple of months ago when i was sick in bed, and it has become my favourite austen adaptation. i loooved it.

Cynthia said...

ohhh... this is on my list of "to read". This series will be a dvd treat once I've gotten around to the book!

Gillian said...

Oh drat. They only stream to the U.S...not Canada. :(

logan said...

Love me some Austin on PBS. Can't wait to add it to me DVR list.

junebug said...

So sad I forgot to watch it! Thanks for the link. I'll get all caught up for this Sunday.

summer said...

thank you, thank you, joanna! my husband and i were sad to find out that we had missed the number one. but now we're all set. woohoo!

You Are My Fave said...

I'm so happy you told me it's available online. I've been waiting since December for it and totally missed the first episode. I'm watching it tonight!

Vintage by LOU LOU said...

I love Austen so looking forward to this hitting Australian screens...

Joanne Angelina said...

Thank you so much for this post, it would have flew right over my head! Super Yay! I shall tune it!
Take care!

Maggie said...

Like other disappointed fans I'm outside the US (NZ) and can't stream from the PBS website. Does anyone know if this is available anywhere else on the web to get around this?

Jasmine said...

I think this is my favorite version of Emma yet :) oh and I just found this, if this helps anyone not in the US :)

melissa said...

My mom told me about it the other day (I don't have TV). I'm so glad that we can watch it online.

And oh ho ho, Jonny Lee Miller as Mr. Knightley? Love.

Rosey said...

definitely my cup of tea!

Bluebelle said...

This was on over here recently too and I loved it. I love anything Austen though!

Katherine said...

It was fabulous! I loved it, can't wait till this Sunday.

mkendall said...

I didn't even know about it. I love jane austen! thanks for posting!

Ulanice said...

oh no! no i need to watch all of it.

Sneaky Magpie said...

Oh, I watched it few months ago on BBC, I absolutely love it. Ramola is wonderful and Johnny Lee Miller is the best Mr Knightly so far!

Vanessa said...

I've been loving it too! There's some serious eye candy - from the costumes, to the scenery, to the seriously dishy lads :)

I have to say I'm loving this blog too! I've been reading every day - thanks for your work!

Erin said...

Thanks for the recommendation! Looks wonderful. How I love Jane Austen.

Also, love your blog :)

Isdanish said...

Oh, I absolutely love this miniseries!

Jill Wignall said...

Before Emma was on our screens here in England I'd never bothered watching many period dramas but I was totally addicted to Emma! The whole series is well worth watching. i looooved it. x

Tiffany Elizabeth said...

OH my goodness! I am so glad you posted this. We haven't had TV since we moved into our house... I would have had NO idea...

Atticus and Juliet said...

Thanks for the suggestion. I watched the first half and LOVED it! (Also, I was delighted when I recognized the girl portraying Emma is the same actress from Atonement.) Can't wait for the next installment.

Lisa said...

You can only view it if you're in the US. :( Sniff sniff...I love Emma. My absolute favourite version, however, is Clueless.

Aaron@CheapThrillsDecorating said...

I think PBS is doing Persuasion this season too!

Laura said...

oh goodness, this is when I miss American television! :-( Laura in Ludwigsburg, Germany.....

Loveeeeeeee Emma!! Thanks for posting this Joanna!! I saw part of the first installment but I fell asleep, not because I was bored either! :( So glad to know I can watch it online considering I'm at my computer most of the time! :)
