    Pride and Prejudice

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that a podcast which compares books to their film adaptations must be in want of a Jane Austen property. It’s Pride and Prejudice, and This Film is Lit.

Books don’t make the best movies, but sometimes they do!

I have started getting into this podcast lately due to Bryan’s YouTube show on “Good Bad/Bad Bad.” I have to say Bryan and Katie have a lot of fun with this podcast, especially when they re-examine old teen books they kinda, sorta liked (I.e. Twilight). My fav episode has to be The Clique, and you can clearly hear the drinks they are consuming to try and rationalize having to do this movie. Either way, I hope someday they do Fahrenheit 451 or maybe something crazier.

Ok

Take too long to get to the point.

Brittany Vieitez ,

please listen to this podcast !!

Started listening after months post running out of new GB or BB content to watch. I was never really into podcasts but absolutely love the commentary that this one has! It’s super funny, informative, and just a great time. I love how long they are cuz I can turn them on while doing school work and it brings down my stress level. Love what you guys do! Keep it up!!
