Web series to watch: The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

If you're into literature and like to watch shows on the web, I've got something for you: The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, a web series that is set up like a video blog, based on Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice."

I'd heard about this series a few times before I actually got around to watching it and I must say, it's pretty fun. Ashley Clements plays Lizzie (Elizabeth) Bennet, a 24-year-old grad student studying Mass Communications who complains, mostly, about how her mom wants her to marry someone rich and successful.

It's well-written, funny and well-acted. Each episode is only about 3 minutes long and there are currently eight available on the YouTube channel.

You can find out more about the show on their website, and you can follow Lizzie on Facebook and Twitter.

Here's the first episode. You'll be hooked. Promise.
