Kaylin’s Take: Have You Seen The Netflix Series, Bridgerton?
With the new year comes new shows to binge on all of our favorite streaming platforms. And I hate to admit it, but I think I binged Netflix's latest in less than two days.
Bridgerton was added to the lineup on Christmas Day. It's like they knew it would be the perfect time to add it because people would be home, relaxing, looking for something new to watch. That's how they got me.
Without giving too much away, I want to give you a little bit of insight into the second most watched show right now on Netflix. Adapted from the series written by Julia Quinn, and produced by Grey's Anatomy queen, Shonda Rhimes, the series follows the Bridgerton family: Violet, Lady Bridgerton; her four sons, Anthony, Benedict, Colin and Gregory and her four daughters, Daphne, Eloise, Francesca and Hyacinth. It is the period of time in London when all of the debutantes presented to be courted by the young men in the community. The eldest daughter of the family, Daphne, is the one on the quest for finding the right husband for her.
OKAY. Let's talk (without giving any spoilers away!)
I will admit, this show didn't really appeal to me at first. I don't really find myself fond of watching anything from the time era. However, I quickly found myself engulfed in the story line, so much so I couldn't stop watching.
No worries, I will not be giving anything away. The one thing that I have to say, maybe to catch your attention and appeal, is that it resembles the show "Gossip Girl" - just more historically accurate and less toxic.
If you're looking for a new drama to get sucked in to, I can tell you this is it. Although, some people don't think it's that great overall. As a warning, it's VERY sexual, not at all family friendly. I don't think some people knew that when they started it. I'm lucky I picked up a warning from someone who said she was "offended" to see some of the stuff that the show aired and that she was planning to boycott Netflix and cancel her streaming subscription. LOL. Okay.
If you go into the show knowing what to expect, and knowing there's a deeper plot than the sexual encounters that happen, I think you could definitely enjoy it too.
When you're finished, let me know what you think! Do you think they'll be continuing with the story line the way it is currently and looking at Daphne/the Duke's life, or will they follow the book series and visit in the dealings of each family member?
