Kid 'n' Play are not invited
I know I'd heard of this, but Cordelia's post reminded me. It seems the reality television craze in the UK has taken the form of sticking modern day people in period situations. The latest installment: Regency House Party. "Visit the Real World of Jane Austen's Mr. Darcy!"
I know these miniseries have been a hit with people, but so far I've avoided getting sucked in (because I know that's exactly what would happen). I think I'd rather curl up with the novel, or gaze upon Colin Firth emerging all wet and dripping in his white shirt after diving into the lake.
In a similar vein, "To Live and Date in New York" is seeking applicants for its new season. [via Gawker]
