Austen Alert!

We've been here nearly five months now, with no television access besides one fuzzy local channel, and it hasn't been an issue so far. It helps that the lone channel we get is NBC, so we were able to watch "The Office," the current favorite around here until the writer's strike hit and the series went into reruns. We've watched only DVDs since then.

And that wasn't a problem until yesterday, when I learned that PBS' Masterpiece Theatre will begin a new series this Sunday: adaptations of Jane Austen's six novels, plus a show about her life. Dd16 and I are now urging the technological expert in our house (AKA Dad) to please reconfigure the antenna in hopes of snagging PBS.

I REALLY hope we get this. I am a HUGE Austen fan, and have read all her books at least twice. (some of them five or six times....:-))

Thanks for the reminder!
