An early-19th-century Gossip Girl wannabe, Bridgerton Is an Intoxicatingly pleasing period piece of Desire and True Love.
This eight-episode escapist drama, each with its own rhythm, shape and glistening momentum, unknowingly emerged from the monotonous depths of the regency-era soap operas and naturally juggled varied plot thread simultaneously.
With an enchanting plot, magnetic and easy to root for romances and vastly intimate sex scenes, Bridgerton’s not-so-secret three-layered weapon shaped an unrestricted realm of delicate sensibilities and compelling feelings.
Bridgerton was dazzlingly brought to life by an outstanding cast of actors. Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page, Bridgerton’s stellar leads, excellently bared it all in their effort to faultlessly personify both of their tremendously complex characters. The entire ensemble wrestled to deliver unsolicited vulnerability and dare I say craziness to each of their roles and the end result was nothing short of genius and fascinating.
Since the Netflix hit has a diverting essence, it spectacularly departed from the standardized casting of most period dramas. In fact, It’s diverse casting, one of its most prominent assets, offered an escape from old-fashioned ethnic perceptions. In other words, Bridgerton is a modern reimagining of 19th century stereotypes but with a modern twist with ‘black’ royalty and aristocrats.
The show’s brilliant classical arrangements of pop songs, colorful set of costumes and sceneries, and audacious camera techniques and procedures assisted in fashioning a cerebral and heart pounding experience that can only be labeled as stimulating and simply glowing.
Bridgerton, Shonda Rhimes’ latest epic creation, is a joyous and a frivolous present that each spectator will most certainly devour with absolute excitement and eagerness.
