TV reviewsAll our TV reviews in one convenient place.

My dears, what do you think? In the extraordinarily picturesque world of Regency-era England here in Bridgerton, the new social season is about to begin in earnest. As I, Lady Whistledown, will faithfully describe in my popular scandal sheet, all eligible young lovers in London are about to appear in court to hopefully extract the Queen’s favor before she is proposed to swim in a sea. of hopeful suitors. . Of course, the diamond of this year’s season is Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) with porcelain skin and brown hair, the first of four daughters of her family to come and whose romantic exploits will no doubt take over much of my reports. from this season. (I also heard that the queen’s husband is, say, under considerable pressure until late, so upset is he after losing the colonies a few seasons ago.)

What is it then? A missive commander of House Of Netflix with a seemingly endless list of narrative elements that I am forbidden to pass on to you, my dear readers? This seems unfair. Without these evolutions of the character, I am lost in what I should describe then: the elaborate period dress? Cascading floral arrangements? The ship in glaring scenes that would make Jane Austen turn scarlet from head to toe?

It seems certain to reveal that Daphne’s main lover this season will be Simon, Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page). After an unfortunate altercation with a hateful suitor, Daphne realizes that she can use the Duke to gain the favor of other young people by making herself seem even more desirable. For the Duke, courting Daphne (upright and otherwise) will eliminate the almost constant troubles she receives from other young London ladies and their mercenary mothers. You see, my dears, the duke has promised never to marry. I’m not free to tell you. But you don’t have to have extensive knowledge of the common novel, the full-bodied genre of breaking the bodice, to predict that Daphne and Simon will gradually become closer through their complementary cunning and that this marital obstacle will add all sorts of obstacles to the relationship. pair.

Fortunately, Daphne comes from a large family: the Bridgertons are all named alphabetically, so our young maid has three older brothers with their own romantic adventures. Unfortunately, I’m not able to tell you about them either, except that the Viscount Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) has high standards of relationships that he longs to achieve. Second-born Benedict (Luke Thompson) can then explore more hedonistic party activities that Lady Whistledown would never darken, I assure you – no, not even to gather all your heart-breaking gossip! Colin (Luke Newton), third in line, is a little more idealistic, but – this list explodes! Daphne’s sister, Eloise (Claudia Jessie), is more concerned with discovering my true identity than with the fact that next season she will be the one to appear in court – but, although she is very smart, never fear, I will keep my leadership secretes indiscreet exercises away from her.

Bridgerton’s less savory counterparts are their neighbors, the Featheringtonians, whose three daughters, I regret to tell you, are overtaken by Daphne like a first-water diamond. But that will hardly stop Mrs. Featherington (Polly Walker) from pushing for the best possible matches for her girls; he remembers strongly a certain dominant matriarch from a previous historical volume worthy of note. But things take a turn when – oh, honey, I’m afraid I can’t go on like this.

My dear ones, I think the real mystery here – even more than my real identity – is what this Netflix house really has to hide with this long list of plot points? Don’t you realize that this series of events follows stories already put in the form of brochures by the author Julia Quinn, so that these “spoilers”, as they refer to them, are available to anyone with a new fake Google device? They believe that a nation hungry for new fun, especially the guy who comes from the so-called Shondaland in her first effort in her new production house, will be less likely to pursue Bridgerton if I know about one of Daphne’s other suitors, for example? I have seen many things at the other end of this scandal sheet, faithful readers, but here I must say that I am uncharacteristic in word loss.

Then let’s look forward to breaking the corset – and shorts, petticoats, clothes, etc. because medical personnel placed in Shondaland’s previous operations have been cruelly at the mercy of the guardians of network virtue, here, without such restrictions, Bridgerton lovers are able to continue whenever and wherever they see fit: at a boxing match, in the rain in a gazebo, even on a spiral staircase. I don’t mind telling you, dear readers, that these almost empty searches sent my hand flying at my pearls on several occasions … and then quickly moving on to the next chapter.

Like my scandal sheet, Bridgerton it has a soapy, convincing way. Although I think very well of myself (for obvious reasons), I would never fall in love with considering my writings a great literature and I doubt that Bridgerton to see their stories this way. However, people run to my creative results and suspect that viewers Bridgerton he will probably do the same. Then all the secrets will be revealed anyway, leaving the others to wonder what was, first of all, the overabundance of caution regarding the development of the plot – isn’t it, dear ones?
