Most of the Yelp reviews are wrong. They just are. Yelp is great for finding information if you forgot the address of a place. You Google it, you say, “Yes, that’s where it is,” and then maybe you spend some time reading reviews when you’re already on your way to the restaurant. And that’s useful. But for the most part, no chef is going to take a Yelper’s review seriously, even though they might read them.
[..]
[Yelpers] are just not professional critics. The best analogy I can give is fantasy sports or lawn-chair stockbrokers. For the most part, unless you’re really studying the stats and you’re a former football player or baseball player and know the industry inside and out, it’s most likely that your insights aren’t that great.
[..]
When you get reviewed by one of the top critics, they are advocates for the consumer. Even though they have their own personal bias, they are working to put themselves in the shoes of what somebody might want in terms of value and food for the people who might go to that restaurant. The problem with Yelp is it’s so personal; reviewers only think about themselves: “I don’t think anyone should go to this restaurant. It’s the worst.” There’s just not enough empathy to think about how other people might experience it. It’s only from their lens. Also, Yelpers don’t have any professional protocol. They sit down and say, “If you don’t do this, we’re going to give you a bad Yelp score.”

When I first began to hear whisperings about The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, a web series created and produced by Hank Green (of vlogbrothers/Nerdfighters fame) and Bernie Su, I admit I was skeptical. I thought there was no room in my heart for another version of Pride and Prejudice.
But after just a few episodes, I was hooked on the fictional video diaries and accompanying social media posts of one reimagined and thoroughly modern Lizzie Bennet.
The diversity of the cast is an obvious departure from the novel, and one of the series’ biggest draws. “The show could very well have been cast with all white actors—that’s often the norm,” says Julia Cho. “From the beginning, the people running the show wanted ours to be a diverse cast. As an actor of color, I’m grateful for that. It’s a much truer representation of the world we actually live in.”
Bernie Su points out that Pride and Prejudice has stood the test of time not just because of the love story, but because Elizabeth Bennet is such a strong character. “When you reimagine a woman as independent as Elizabeth Bennet, you have to think about the many choices women have today,” he says. “We wanted to talk about those options—especially career options—in our adaptation.”
“It would be absurd to create a modernized version of Elizabeth Bennet who wasn’t a feminist,” says Ashley Clements. “A woman who speaks her mind, holds out for what she wants, and is loved and valued for who she is—she was as feminist as she could be in 1813.”
