Another wonderful Austen adaptation!
Currently there are eleven episodes out of Emma Approved, and I am loving it. When I first heard they chose Emma to adapt into a vlog, my first worry that it would be too much like clueless. No worries at all. They're both proving to be charming adaptations. The casting is wonderful. Joanna Sotomura is absolutely charming, which is needed considering how unlikeable the character is. The chemistry she has with Brent Bailey is so fun to watch, and he is rather swoon-worthy. Dayeanne Hutton is simply adorable. I like that they're making her character a sweet, awkward girl who tries way too hard rather than an idiot. And then last episode we got to meet Martin! I watched it with a friend of mine, and we couldn't stop talking about how great he was. Very funny, a nice guy, someone totally deserving of Harriet, just not what Emma would want.
I'm excited to see this story evolve even more.
