    I don't think you understood what I was trying to get at. Lost in Austen is not an adaptation, it is a take on it, and in that, it carries the satire of Austen much further.

    Kicking someone in...

    Never heard of the brilliant theatrical piece Cyrano de Bergerac? C'est étrange, car vous parlez le français.

    Yes, that seems a little strange, but I don't think one should think so far. We cannot actually go into another world, and Lizzie is not even real, so she can't actually step into Amanda's bathroom...
