PBS’ Masterpiece Classics is having a Jane Austen marathon of sorts. I’m Such a sucker for those schmaltzy period pieces. The chivalry, the blushing, the unrequited love. The eloquently delivered overtures, the even more eloquently delivered barbs, the chaste passionate longing. *sigh* My knees are buckling just thinking about Colin Firth – the only acceptable Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy in the only acceptable movie version of Pride and Prejudice.

For those of you who are similarly afflicted with Firth fever, here are the remaining show times:

Mansfield Park – January 27
Miss Austen Regrets – February 3
Pride and Prejudice – February 10, 17, & 24
Sense & Sensibility – March 20 & April 6
