Looks like all 8 episodes of this already aired on ITV in the UK over the summer, but PBS just started running it this weekend under 'Masterpiece'.

It's kind of impressively terrible as an actual Jane Austen adaptation, though guilty-pleasure enjoyable as Jane Austen crack-fic.

I am not sure what to make of this. Crackfic seems close, with a healthy dose of what I think of as mid-90s WB teen drama?
I think I need to pace myself so the absurdity can really ripen. Treat!
