I will undoubtedly regret watching this, but at least it's free.

PBS's The Complete Jane Austen is concluding with the only Austen adaptation I haven't already watched on YouTube: the 2008 TV miniseries version of Sense and Sensibility, adapted by screenwriter Andrew Davies*. Sense and Sensibility is my least-favorite Austen novel, but I'm sure I'll end up recording it. Click here to watch a scene from the film, which will air on March 30th and April 6th.

*Which means DANGER, dear readers. While Davies has done some solid work, he is also responsible for the 2007 TV adaptation of E.M. Forster's novel A Room With a View, which went ahead and invented an unhappy ending! Seriously, who would do something like that? Is he going to make up a new final scene for Sense and Sensibility featuring both sisters dying in childbirth?

What happens in the new RwaV ending, do you know? And when does it air?

According to wikipedia, George dies in WWI and Lucy returns alone to the Italian room. Nice, huh? And it should air in mid-April.
