The videos are recorded as if the real Lizzy would be making them, telling the audience, from her own room, the things that happen in her and her sisters' lives, so you can feel the closeness, as if they truly were doing than, and you can see her sisters coming and going from one side of their home to another.
About the characters, I have to say that Ashley Clements is one of my favorite Lizzys. She is a young girl, who is worried about her studies, but who lives in a mad house, with a neurotical mother, who is obsessed with marrying her daughters, and sisters who are polar opposites, but that make her life happier. I love Ashley because of her continous humour, she is very expressive and tends to make exaggerations and imitations, so I could easily feel identified with her. The best was when Mrs Bennet appears and ¡¡tachan tachan!! is Lizzy who is imitating her with a big hat and pearls, and with a southern accent so exaggerated that even Mr Bennet could run mad.
Lydia, a red haired girl, is, undoubtly, the craziest character (she is as mad as a hatter), but she is also the character that evolves more from total irresponsability to maturity. Everytime she appears on the screen, very often, because she crashes to her sister's room, she gets, with her teen attitude and unshameful, all the focus. The relationship between Lydia and Lizzy as older and younger sister, is very emotional, you can feel for them, when Lydia is betrayed by Wickham (I think that is no spoiler! ;D)
I have liked his performance, but didn't drive me crazy, although he could shows enough shades from an interesting character like Darcy. Although Daniel and Ashley had a good on-screen chemistry and they were very convincing and funny together.
Conclusión: The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is a modern adaptation very recommendable, that even die hard janeites will enjoy and those who do not know a single thing about the writer. I have loved it because of its humour and because it shows that Pride and Prejudice is, more than a romantic or costumbrist book, a character study about universal and inmortal characters.
