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.
