  1. Well, I’m sorta of waiting for my library reserve to come in, but with the COVID pandemic who knows when?

    Why didn’t they change Charlotte’s name to Mary Sue or better yet Diana Prince then her superhero or would that be supershero persona of Wonder Woman would be more appropriate?

    Still all women need to find Bobby pins to pin their hair up. And I’m sure Miss Jane Austen is turning in her grave at this travesty.

    Still there’s the ever likable Stringer the Younger to watch. As well as Mr Palmik, oops, Mr Hero.

    1. We’re talking Jane Austen here, folks. She’s not turning over in her grave, she I entertaining her friends in the afterlife with some really withering, exquisitely phrased snark.

  2. Someone please give that girl a batch of bobby pins and a hairbrush. I can’t stand her hair! She looks like Mr. Rochester’s mad wife!

  3. Had been going through snark week to destress myself of the impending COVID-19 outbreak here in India.With Sanditon though,you don’t even need snark.The story of the show itself is that stupendously stupid.
    However,with the recap of the fifth episode,I feel like I have reached the fifth stage of grief. Acceptance of these”damned monstrous ideas unbecoming of none but the witchfolks that dread the holy historical accuracy,destined to rot in purgatory but unleashed upon unsuspecting humanity seeking relatibility and bargaining verisimilitude in its pursuit through the corrupted devilry of Hollywood possessed by Satan”not being Austen but a high school romance.Which even my two years old high school self would feel offended by.
    Oh,do I see a hope spot there?Stringer’s coat looks beautifully aged.But Esther should probably wear less makeup.She looks quite pretty when her face isn’t smothered by layers of plaster.

  4. The cricket game nearly killed me. I was happy for Esther though. Yeah, I know she turned down Lord Wonderful but of course she’s going to say yes later – I know my tropes! Charlotte goes all the way to London ALONE??

  5. There is So Much Wrong here! The idea of gentlemen and working men mixing socially to start with. And then there’s Charlotte with her Wild Child hair, no hat and no spencer, unlike Every Other Woman at the regatta! And not so much as a side eye from her peers. On the other hand, an ability to play cricket is her most believable accomplishment so far. And then there’s Georgiana, hatless, successfully getting on a post coach with nobody in this small town interfering. Because everybody knows she’s a rich heiress and would never be going on a public conveyance unattended unless she’s running away. And then Charlotte does the same! Remember the huge fuss there was about Catherine Morland being sent home unaccompanied? Young ladies did not do such things by choice. In reality if a girl like Charlotte realized a friend was in trouble she’d Immediately appeal to her male friends for assistance! At most she’d insist on coming along. Spirited Elizabeth Bennet doesn’t go running to London to find her runaway sister. She sends her uncle. Not least because propriety be damned she wouldn’t know where to begin looking.

  6. For that matter a lover planning an elopement wouldn’t expect his beloved to travel alone on public conveyance. She’d be expected to get herself out of the house at most and he or a servant would be standing by with a horse or a coach.

  7. I was bored during self-quarantine so I spent about a day and a half watching this. At exactly no point did I feel like I was watching Jane Austen, but it was a decently entertaining way to pass the time.

    With Charlotte’s hair – I thought at first that they were trying (clumsily) to emphasize how naive Charlotte was when she first came to Sanditon and by the end of the season, when she’s had to learn some hard lessons and grow up, her hair would be up all the time. But no! So I don’t know what the point was. It’s not even like it looked good half the time, with the ocean wind whipping it around.

    1. I’m not sure but I think the loose hair, lack of bonnet and short sleeves was meant to make Charlotte ‘relatable’
