I love Laurie's take on what I call the "Colin Firth Pride & Prejudice" (sorry Jennifer Ehle). It definitely is my standard against which all P&P adaptations are judged, though I will say I found the Keira Knightley movie wonderful. But given that that was a 2-hour adapation as opposed to this longer form, miniseries treatment, I do think they are apples and oranges and one can love each of them without any conflict. I still remember studying P&P religiously for my senior year English major "orals" exam where I was grilled by three professors about three works of my choosing. Choosing Austen made studying all the easier. Part 3 airs on Sunday, February 24th opposite the Oscars, so some tivo'ing may be required.
