    In my humble opinion, Colin Firth is the best Mr Darcy ever!

    He was absolutely stunning, adorable...ultimate Mr Darcy!

    You could see on his face the struggle of emotions...
    when he saw Lizzy after she found out that Lydia escaped with Mr Wickham. He wanted to hug her and say that everything will be all right...
    when he saw Lizzy at Pemberly....when she "saved" Georgiana from Bingley's sister remark on Mr Wickham... the list is endless...

    I agree. The entire cast, sets locations, costumes, and everything else was absolutely perfect.

    there will never be a better one.
    I mean who would ever be able to so pride and jet nervous at the same time.

    MR. DARCY: "In vain have I struggled, it will not do. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you."

    Oh God, Colin is definitely the one and only Darcy. I couldn't imagine him in other way.

    I agree completely. He even played Darcy in Bridget Jones's Diary which was based on Pride and Prejudice. Oh the irony.

    Colin Firth is the best Darcy and I think the film can't hold a torch to the BBC version

    You know the part in the mini series when Lizzie is looking out over Darbyshire and says, "Beautiful!" The same can be said for Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy - beautiful! This is especially true when Lizzie comes to Georgiana's rescue at the piano, and there is Darcy's look. Beautiful! Colin Firth is absolutely wonderful.
