%% * {{Adorkable}}:
%% ** Harriet.

Harriet's odd mix of timidness and enthusiasm gives her an awkward, almost childlike adorableness. As the series goes on and she gains more confidence, the trope diminishes somewhat, but she remains one of the sweetest and most loveable characters in the series.
** Martin. Who has chemistry Martin is more the "socially awkward nerd" type; he's not always certain how to talk to people, except when the topic is something he's passionate about (bird-watching, computers, poker). Like Harriet, the trope becomes less prominent with Harriet. The most ridiculously awkwardly cute chemistry ever committed him as CharacterDevelopment sets in, though without making him any less likeable.
** Ricky Collins, in the revival, somehow manages
to film.embrace the trope even ''[[CharacterExaggeration more]]'' than he did in ''WebVideo/TheLizzieBennetDiaries'', when out on his quest to find a new purpose in life. He still has no social intelligence whatsoever, but his friendly eagerness has been taken UpToEleven.


* HiddenDepths: Emma is initially an EntitledBastard [[spoiler: SpoiledSweet WellIntentionedExtremist StoicWoobie IceQueen StepfordSmiler ManipulativeBastard]] and this is all conveyed by the actress. That makes a lot of layers.

* SpoiledSweet: Emma is an interesting take on this trope. She wants to make other people happy, and she's charming when doing it. She's just not ready to understand what concretely makes them happy, because she's too spoiled and shallow to get into the depths of it.

* BigDamnKiss: [[spoiler:Episode 70.]]
* [[BigBrotherInstinct Big Sibling Instinct]]: Emma and Alex towards Harriet. Since they are foils, they go radically differently about it. Emma is very condescending and manipulative towards her, and starts a PygmalionPlot because she's certain that this is the best for her. She doesn't respect Harriet's choices. Alex thinks Harriet is fine this way. He never tries to change her and seems to just have trouble dealing with her Moe-ness tendancies.

The series opens on Emma tying up loose ends on her twentieth successful match -- her friend Annie Taylor and cupcake company CEO Ryan Weston. When her business partner [[AdaptationNameChange Alex]] Knightley puts his foot down and insists that she gets herself an assistant, Emma hires sweet, gullible Harriet Smith and decides to better Harriet's life by finding her a husband worthy of her -- and who could be worthier than the handsome, recently-single youngest Californian state senator ever, James Elton? As in the original, HilarityEnsues.

Added DiffLines:

** The following sentence comes out of Emma's mouth in Episode 1 of the revival and shows that she has, well and truly, fallen off the deep end on a toboggan that is picking up speed: "Dear Anne Elliot, I, Emma Woodhouse, vow to dedicate my life to see to it that you and Mr Wentworth are happily married - ha ha - You'll regret it for the rest of your life if you do not go through with this. I will stop at ''nothing'' to see you walk down the aisle, '''''even if I have to tie you up and drag you down the alter myself''''' - hmm. I am Emma Woodhouse and I will not fail you. ''Ever''. Do you hear me? Please call me to discuss."
