So I finally watched it. And… a couple thoughts:
1. Fascinated by what they said re: Welcome to Sanditon. It sounds like it is only very loosely based on the book and the “character” they’re using is the town itself. We won’t necessarily have the Charlotte Heywood character, the Parkers, Lady Denham etc. It’s more about the town. But, more interestingly, and more ambitiously, it sounds like they want to get much MORE interactive with it, and for the viewers to be characters in it more directly. So that sounds pretty exciting.
2. Also: Wickham got back on OKCupid at the end? Ew. So I guess that means Darcy didn’t kill him. What did he mean by telling Gigi “he’ll never be able to do this again”? I guess it was probably just to reassure her, because obviously it’s impossible to make that kind of guarantee if he isn’t in jail or dead.
