Emma Approved has also inspired me to rewatch Emma (2009), my favourite adaptation, and also re-re-re-read the novel! Romola Garai is a delight in the title role, and hers is the 'face' which I now always associate with the character while reading the book (ditto Jonny Lee Miller as Mr Knightley).
I'm also impressed by how many scenes in the series are taken almost verbatim from the novel - when reading about Harriet and Emma discussing Robert Martin's proposal, for instance, I can 'hear' Romola and Louise Dylan speaking the dialogue in my imagination!
Oh, and I must be about the only person who is glad that the 'brother and sister' line was chopped from E4 - I've never liked the onscreen delivery in any version.
