Happy New Year's Eve!
This is this blog's 296th and last post for 2015. As I wait (one more hour here, ET in my time zone!) to welcome the new year, I thought I'd post here 16 things I look forward to seeing and hope to happen (and more) in the coming New Year, 2016!

In random order...

I have been waiting for Joe Wright's Pride & Prejudice (starring & ) 2005 film be added to Netflix for a very long time (I've even tweeted Netflix about it once, ahaha!) and finally, the recent news for What’s Coming to Netflix in January 2016 (via Collider) and that made me happy like Mrs. Bennet saying, "oh, happy day!" in the movie. So, yes, for those of us, who has been searching and waiting for Netflix to add this movie in like forever on their new releases list, P&P movie is finally going to be added on their stream list of new movies arriving on the first day of January 2016 (New Year's Day)! Woohooo!!! See what else is coming Netflix in January: Here's what's new (via USA Today).

Speaking of P&P (2005) movie, Oxygen will be showing it again, twice on January 6th starting at 6:30 pm ET and 10:30 pm ET. I missed the Christmas Eve back-to-back airing, but I'm glad it's airing again in January!…

Holiday Gifts For Him | A Guide Inspired by Mr. Darcy, “The Ideal Man”

Image
This holiday season marks the 10th anniversary when Joe Wright’sPride & Prejudice (2005)made its way across the pond becoming a sensation. Matthew Macfadyen’s portrayal either revived old feelings or gave an introduction to millions of fans stateside why Mr. Darcy is the ultimate romantic hero. No other male figure in literature can compete with his enduring appeal with so many generations of women.  Mr. Darcy’s fandom is so vast and fierce that he is the inspiration for spin-offs, adaptations, fan fiction, collectibles, and even games. His popularity spans the far reaches of the internet, from discussion forums to a manifold presence on every social media outlet in existence. Let’s face it, there’s just something about him. Jane Austen birthed this character over 200 years ago and he is still that dude!  A day ago Miss Austen would have turned 240, Happy Freaking Birthday Jane!!! So let’s get this party started by examining one of her most beloved creations!

Happy 240th Birthday JANE AUSTEN!

Image
Happy 240th Birthday to the lovely, genius and way ahead of her time, beloved English novelist, the one and only, JANE AUSTEN!

Worth re-posting every year (and slightly edited and updated) for your FYI...
Remembering and celebrating her birthday today, Jane Austen, the woman who wrote the original Pride and Prejudicenovel (which had been made into several TV and Film adaptations including the 2005 film, Pride & Prejudice), which was her first (can you believe unsuccessful?!) submission to a publisher back in 1797 (217 years ago) titled "First Impressions" (later changed to "Pride and Prejudice"). She revised "First Impressions" and published it entitled "Pride and Prejudice" in 1813 (202 years ago, 11 months ago this year!).

Lionsgate UK, the UK distributor for PPZ movie, has released several P&P character posters (similar to The Hunger Games movies' character posters approach, where they released 2 posters at a specific UK movies' related websites/blogs at a time...after all, Lionsgate was the same distributor for all THG films), a total of 8 (thus far).

A New Hallmark Movie 'Unleashing Mr. Darcy' to premiere January 23, 2016!

Image
I wouldn't have noticed there's a new movie with Mr. Darcy's name as part of the movie's title, had I not been following and watching Hallmark channel's annual Countdown to Christmas moviesa lot lately and, of course, my social media feed. The P&P fan in me instantly notices anything P&P/Austen and Darcy related things or mentions, lol. Yes, I'll admit, I love Hallmark and their typical romantic (with happy ending) movies (after all, P&P's timeless story probably inspired them all) and their feel-good original Christmas movies that I love watching (my guilty pleasure) and gets me into the Christmas holiday spirit and mood. I didn't see the title of this new movie on their promo preview until I saw the list of Hallmark movies in the WinterFest 2016  movies Schedule that will be airing in the New Year as part of Hallmark's WinterFest 2016 of new original movies for all of January 2016.

Watch: Text Santa - 'Downton Abbey meets Vera' video featuring Penelope Wilton and Brenda Blethyn!

Image
ITV has released a new Text Santa - Downton Abbeysneak peek sketch video featuring 's Isobel Crawley with Hugh Bonneville's Lord Grantham searching for the right Father Christmas (aka Santa Claus) with Brenda Blethyn's Vera showing up for the audition and Brendan Coyle's Mr. Bates popping up out of nowhere, lol...The P&P fan in me can't help thinking this was another awesome P&P/DA connection, Mrs. Bennet (P&P 2005) reunited with her sister-in-law Mrs. Gardiner (P&P 2005) who was sitting next to a different Mr. Bennet (Lost In Austen's own Mr. B!). I'd love for Keira & Matthew to make a cameo as Elizabeth & Darcy as a P&P 10th Anniversary reunion special or homage for the P&P movie fans. If only this idea is possible...

Watch the Text Santa sketch video below...
