Watch Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice is a television show based off of the classic and well-renowned novel by Jane Austen. The show follows the famous romance of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy in 19th-century England. The story is known for its humor, wit, and romantic tension caused by the love-hate relationship between the two main characters.

The story begins with the main character, Elizabeth, hating the male lead, Mr. Darcy, because she believes him to have too much arrogance and pride, so she frequently makes comedic but scathing remarks about him. Elizabeth has four sisters, all of them unmarried, which in the time period was a serious issue because women frequently didn't work and could not support themselves. The mother of Elizabeth is an exaggerated character that is both loving and strict but primarily concerned with finding husbands for her children.

Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy are new to the town and Elizabeth's mother hopes that she will be able to marry off her daughters. Mr. Bingley falls in love with Elizabeth's sister, Jane, immediately, but Mr. Darcy is stand-offish to all of the people in the town. He refuses to ask anyone to dance at their gathering, causing Elizabeth to see him as being rude. Mr. Darcy falls in love with Elizabeth and has to win her over because of his previously unwelcoming behavior.

The story is filled with drama from the relationship between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy but also from her other romantic entanglements. There is another man in Elizabeth's life, Mr. Collins, who becomes interested in Elizabeth before Mr. Darcy and proposes to her. She does not believe that she loves him, so she refuses his marriage proposal. This causes her issues later in the show, along with complications between her and Mr. Collin's family. Elizabeth does not care about money and marriage though, and she is portrayed as being more independent than the other women around her. Later in the text, Elizabeth begins to feel affection toward Mr. Darcy after he performs several selfish acts for her, and the two start to fall in love.
