Emma's reviews are in

And they're not pretty. AustenBlog readers have weighed in on the first episode (of four) of the most recent TV adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma, and they're tossing around phrases like "huge disappointment" as though they were confetti*. I'll still probably check it out when this shows up here in the States, but this is not a promising sign.

*They seem particularly irritated by a scene in which Emma teaches Harriet Smith how to eat soup properly, and I gotta say: Harriet's supposed to live a girls' school, right? Wouldn't she already have a pretty solid grasp of basic table manners? I mean, it's not like soup is some kind of super-exotic food....
