Review (sort of): Bridgerton's 1st Season on Netflix

I have a confession: I binge-watched Bridgerton on Netflix in two days!

Not that I’m the only one guilty, of course. I’m sure there were many like me. Hereforth (see what I did there? Archaic English!) are the reasons why I found this series binge-worthy:

Bridgerton is based on the books of Julia Quinn, a best-selling historical romance novelist.

If I would be asked to briefly describe Bridgerton in three words, it will be these: Escapist, Scintillating, Colorful.

It is escapist in that we are brought to an entirely new (and better) world of 19th century London, where skin color was not a deterrent to being accepted in high society. Why, even the Queen was a black woman with a heavy burden in her heart.

It is scintillating for its suspenseful twists and steamy sex scenes which were done with finesse, I must say. And were truly relevant to the story. 

And it is colorful not only for its costumes, settings, characters’ personalities–but only for its language and melodrama. Bridgerton is a rainbow of everything you’d want in an entertaining romance series.

Above all, watching Bridgerton made me search and binge-read all the actual books in the series! Yep, I’ve read them all.

I wasn’t a fan of historical romance before. But because of Bridgerton, I became one. Or more correctly, I became a fan of Julia Quinn! I love her prose and humor. I love how her characters come alive in my mind: talking, moving, bickering as though they were real. And I love her plots. They are not predictable.

Pride and Prejudice will always be a classic, but I find that it paled in comparison (both the book by Jane Austen and the film starring Kiera Knightley) to Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton series.
