I got confused in my versions. I think Sari was indeed talking about a much older version of Emma, which is the BBC version. I originally thought the Mark Strong version was also BBC, but I think I was wrong. Regardless, the version I like best is the Mark Strong version that appeared on A&E. Very well done!
] Which BBC Emma are you guys discussing, the really old one where Mr. Knightly looks about 50, or the recent one, where he's played very well by Mark Strong?

] ] Hello, Sari.
] ] Although I enjoyed both Emma-2 and Emma-3, I must say I prefer Emma-3. ....
] ] As for Emma-3's Knightley being "totally ugly", I could not disagree with you more. ..... He seems to me a very good Knightley.

] ] ] I've always loved P&P, especially when I saw A&E's production, and S&S was really good too, but I never really got around to seeing "Emma" until only last week.
] ] ] Oh, by the way I watched the old BBC version awhile after to compare, and I loved the newer version better (Knightly is totally ugly in the BBC one) but I did find things more clearer and explained more in the older one. Like about Frank Churchill and Jane Fairfax's relationship.
