I was rather charmed by this opening dialogue between Mr. and Mrs. Bennett. I found it playful and amusing, especially with so many things going straight over Mrs. Bennett's head. But this time, for some reason, I'm detecting...I'm not sure what I would call it. There's just something about Mr. Bennett using his wife as an outlet for his wit that doesn't sit well with me, even if she is quite silly. I suppose I will have to wait and see how this dynamic continues to strike me; but so far I'm much more uncomfortable with Mr. Bennett than I was in the past.
