I love, love, lovelovelove Pride and Prejudice, imaginary readers, because I read it before anyone had the chance to tell me that it’s fucking hilarious. Most movies and tv specials will focus on the romance, (a fairly straightforward plot of girl hates boy, girl starts to like boy, girl and boy have terrible misunderstanding, and girl and boy make up) instead of the underlying satire of Victorian England.

It’s funny as Hell, and I’m sure, as someone in the 21st century, I don’t get most of the jokes.
