Netflix's Bridgerton - TV Talk

 

I'm going to commit one of the deadliest book sins out there with this one... but it's gotta be done.

***LIGHT SPOILERS***

This show follows a cast of characters but the main two are Simon and Daphne. Simon has just become a Duke after the death of his father and Daphne is out and trying to find a good husband. Drama ensues and those two end up putting on a ruse so each can get what they want. 

Confession: I have no desire to read the book that this show is based off. I read some reviews for that book and decided it was not for me. I don't want to trigger anyone, so I'll just say something terrible happens and it's not my kinda thing. 

That being said everyone kept going on about this series so I wanted to watch it. I devoured the show in two days. It's a fun escape from the world in which we live. Is it the best thing I've ever seen? No. But I'm a sucker for a good romance. 

I went in thinking this was going to be a very long drawn out enemies to lovers story but I was wrong. Sure, there's a bit of enemies to lovers but there's also what happens after marriage. There's even a really cool mystery! That even I didn't catch until episode 7! So well done there! 

I really hope that sex wasn't treated like that in real life. It's sad just how kept in the dark these girls were. They thought babies only happened in marriage and even then they had no idea of the actual act! 

Every character in this series each have their own motives and ambitions making them feel so much more real It's well acted and hooked me completely! If you're looking for something new to binge then I fully suggest this series!
