Bridgerton

Ask a Question

Anyone planning on watching this?.It's the new Shonda Rhimes show on Netflix. It's released on Christmas day and looks like it could be really good.

Yes I am!!!! I read the books by Julia Quinn and thoroughly enjoyed the series. No spoilers....but there are one or two characters that are nothing like the book described. I hope you enjoy it too.

Watched the first couple of episodes and I am loving this. If Gossip Girl was set during the Regency Period, it would be Bridgerton.

Without spoilers, are there any characters you feel are accurate and true to the book or do you feel some of the situations and characters seem like a parody? (I have one episode left to go)

sunny101 I feel like they really nailed the main characters in particular,Daphne and Simon.Some of the other supporting characters are a little broad and not what I pictured when I read the books. It feels frothy and camp to me,rather than like a parody.

laraquinn I thought Simon was spot on but Daphne all wrong. lol. I didn't think Violet would have put up with any nonsense from her children..... I liked her though. I suppose it's our personal perception of them when we read the books.

You should definitely check it out. It's light and frothy and will hopefully take your mind off this crappy year for a bit.
