Does exactly what it says on the tin! Introduces me, my channels, and my videos. Enjoy! List of videos can be found at http://jillbearup.com/blog/masterpost
Summary: Internet bad. Everything else great. New videos currently problematic, but we'll figure something out. Also: this corner of Germany? Very pretty.
In this episode: Rita Skeeter, house-elves, truth, lies and media, the power of cooperation, the power of story, and why it's never a good idea to make Hermione mad.
Just what it sounds like. Guess who's emigrating? Why yes. It IS me!
Lizzie, Jane, Charlotte, Pride and Prejudice as a morality tale, and why Ursa likes Lydia a lot better now. In the final episode of her Pride and Prejudice series, she looks at the Emmy Award-winning YouTube series The Lizzie Bennet Diaries!
India, America, England, Bollywood music, Aishwarya Rai, and Gurinder Chadha directing: what more could you want? Well... maybe a Darcy who actually appeals. But we can't have everything, right?
Let It Go from Frozen. Sung by Jill Bearup. Man, do I love Elsa. A lot.
On this episode of Stuff You Like: "You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you," weddings, rom-coms, wet and shirtless Colin Firth, villains running off to marry quasi-legal young women, the 1995 BBC miniseries, and why Darcy is so damn hard to get right (hint: Frosty but competent).
Stuff You Like's 3rd birthday, Shakespeare, impact, and The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People: this episode wants to know what you think.
A monologue for #Shakes450: A Midsummer Night's Dream, Act 2, Scene 1. "These are the forgeries of jealousy..."
In her last Doctor Who episode (for a while, anyway), Ursa gives us a rundown on: David Tennant, NuWho seasons 2 through 4.5, the Doctor getting too human, the Time Lord Victorious, how (not) to set up your replacement, and why Ten is her favorite. Video may also include an angry Welshman shouting over the phone.
Elle is going to be the greatest and most uniquely dressed lawyer ever. In this episode, Ursa talks objectification, feminism, sex objects, and why Elle Woods is brilliant. Stay tuned for a teaser for Ursa's new series after the credits!
So what's Plus Points all about then? Jill and Jade give you a sneak peek at what you can expect from their new series.
How do you introduce a whole new generation to your long-running sci-fi show? Ursa takes a look at Nu-Who's first Doctor, his first story arc, and why some companions just don't cut it.
It's time for some more New Who on Stuff You Like, and where better to start than with the Ninth Doctor's first companion? Was she really a teen pop star? Why is everything super-fast in the first episode? Do all British mothers behave like Jackie Tyler? Some of these questions and more answered as we take a look at Rose Marian Tyler!
Ursa's never really been aware of the "giant robots punching giant monsters" genre up to now, but... Rinko Kikuchi, optimism, two Science Guys, Idris Elba, Guillermo del Toro's visual storytelling of pretty, and Charlie Hunnam's abs? Yeah, I think she's sold.
As it turns out, Ursa was wrong about the finale, and she's kind of glad about it. Spoilers, y'all; we're diving into the series 3 finale of Sherlock, before returning to our regularly scheduled hiatus. Let's hope it's less than two years this time.
It's been two years in the making, but Sherlock is back for series three! What did Ursa make of "The Empty Hearse"? Was there love, hate, or total indifference for "The Sign of Three"? And can we expect to see more Molly Hooper this time around? The answer to the last one is "yes". For the answers to the others, you'll need to watch the episode.
Christmas is over, and Ursa has a message for Matt Smith: you deserved better. She talks "The Time of the Doctor", consequences, stirring speeches, and hollow threats. Oh, and wooden Cybermen. Can't forget those.
'Tis the season for love, actually, with Hugh Grant as Prime Minister, more than one lobster present at the birth of Jesus Christ, and innumerable subplots. Or at least, the three subplots Ursa thinks are most interesting.
