Streaming Saturday: Bridgerton

We all love books here, but I thought I might start dedicating some posts on Saturdays to highlight one of my other loves – TV!

What I’m watching

Bridgerton on Netflix. There is one season of 8 episodes currently available. It’s based on the book The Duke and I by Julia Quinn.
Wealth, lust, and betrayal set in the backdrop of Regency era England, seen through the eyes of the powerful Bridgerton family.

Why I’m Watching

It seemed like everywhere I looked, I was seeing an advertisement for Bridgerton. I’ve liked a few Shondaland shows, so I thought I’d give it a try, even though I really didn’t have any high expectations for it. I’ve never read the book, nor am I super interested in regency romance stories these days. However, I really ended up loving it! It’s such a fun show with some absolutely stunning settings and costumes. It does get a little (or a lot) risque at times, so make sure your kids aren’t watching it with you if you give it a go. 

There’s romance, humor, mystery and a large and lovable cast of characters. The chemistry between the two leads really makes the show.

    • I think you would probably like this one! My brother said he was cancelling his Netflix account (which I use) at the end of the year, but I still have it so I’m hoping he forgot haha. If he does cancel it, though, I plan on signing up for maybe just a month at a time here and there for when new seasons of shows I like come out.

  1. I have a free trial out of Amazon prime and I’m binge watching greys anatomy. I’m on season 13.
    I will give Bridgerton a try as you similarise it gossip girl. I wouldn’t have assumed the 2 would be in any way linked but I loved GG.
