Bridgerton

As a writer of historical romance, I couldn’t help but watch the Netflix series Bridgerton, based on the series of novels by Julia Quinn.

And the series delivered, with ballrooms, gowns, gossip, romances, scandals, and just about every historical romance trope imaginable stuffed into the first episode.

While the fabrics are perhaps not quite era-specific, the gowns were glorious – and even if not-so-glorious, still very colourful!

I watched the entire season over three nights, and thoroughly enjoyed it all – even the cello version of Taylor Swift’s song Wildest Dreams playing over the lovemaking scene.

I read one review where a young woman suggested that “Nobody ever spoke like that.” While that may or may not be so (it’s not like we have any contemporaries around to find out), it is never supposed to be historically accurate – it’s Romance. It’s fantasy, pure and simple, with a difficult to obtain, but totally required happily ever after for the main characters.

Penelope Featherington is my favorite – because she is a little bit rotund, and a redhead, and a bookworm – all characteristics that I share with her – and didn’t she turn out to be a dark horse, hmm? If you haven’t seen it yet, I’d suggest you do so, before someone spoils the surprise for you.

Although, this article on The Insider suggested that we could quite easily have worked it out, had we paid attention.

So, all that is left now is to wait patiently (or impatiently, as the case may be) for Netflix to announce Season 2.
