When writing a Netflix review BridgetownIt’s hard not to remind people of Julie Andrews’ voice. After all, she was the voice of Mrs. Wheatstone. Moreover, although the true identity of the scandal scribe was not revealed until the eighth and final episode of Season 1, Andrews’ narrative set the tone for the tone of this high-end version in many ways. gossip Girl.
The first extravagant works “Diamonds of the First Water” opened at the beginning of the London social season of the Regency (circa 1813). Two families were introduced immediately. There is a very popular clan of Bridgetown, where there are eight beautiful daughters and handsome sons, and their lovely widow mother, Violet Bridgetown (played by Ruth Jimmel). Her eldest daughter Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) is serving, um, came up with, For marriage. When her eldest son Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) showed a romantic relationship with his soprano singing girlfriend Siena (Sanana Bartlett), she was sitting in a tree. Needless to say, this is not the type of marriage.
Anthony’s bare ass was exposed, and it was only three minutes into the series. When he and Siena went to see it the second time, it showed again. Of course, the plot will flourish in the future, but it is safe to say that the outdoor play of the two is an early warning that this is not a family show.
Featheringtons are the second family. Ancestral Baron Featherington (Ben Miller) and his harsh baroness wife Portia (RomePolly Walker (Polly Walker) married their three daughters, namely Philip (Harriet Cains), Prudential (Bessie Carter) and Penelope (Nicola Coughlan).Poor prudent corset is tied and so She passed out in front of the Queen (Golda Rosheuvel). The situation will only get worse when Featherington girls are more beautiful and more mysterious cousin Marina (Ruby Barker) who accompanies them and attracts a large number of suitors. For Marina, the sad thing is that the past marital relationship with her old boyfriend made her mother’s fate even more elusive and increased her need to get married quickly to avoid social humiliation.
Daphne wore an amazing white dress, train and headgear to make herself look like she was going to her wedding. She performed much better in the royal court, and Queen Charlotte announced her The season is incomparable. After a very judgmental and hypocritical Anthony scared away all Daphne’s most qualified suitors, this was both a blessing and a curse. In fact, things have become so terrible that the old and lecherous Nigel Beamish (Jamie Beamish) is still Daphne’s best choice.
But not so fast. Anthony’s college friend Simon Basset (Rege-Jean Page) tried in Daphne at Madame Danbury (Adjoa Andoh) Flirted with her when leaving Burbrook at the dance party. Daphne learned that Simon was the Duke of Hastings, but was not impressed by his title. There is an undeniable connection between the two, Daphne and Simon both walked away, wanting to know each other.Although Chris Van Dusen created the show, it was adapted from the hit movie by Julia Quinn Bridgetown For this book series, Shonda Rhimes is the executive producer. Therefore, fans of this prolific producer can look forward to the romantic relationship between Daphne and Simon, as well as many racial tolerances. The issue of race was briefly resolved in episode 2 and more in-depth discussion in episode 4, presumably to shut down opponents, they may prefer the white of Simon, Danbury, Marina and Queen of the book version. Maybe not. The dishes are luxurious.
Back to the series premiere. Thanks to Whistledown’s stern and independent observation of Daphne and Simon, and the author’s public daring to let the matchmaker pair Simon with any lady, Danbury Danbury and Viscountess (Viscountess) Violet made a plan to build young people. The plan worked because it brought Simon and Daphne together again, this time at the Bridgetown table, and Simon and Daphne verbally moved with each other. Oh! Spy on that sexy chemical reaction!
When the two met for the third time, Simon fled to rescue Daphne from the convenient Nigel. But Daphne was very capable of dealing with herself and gave Nigel two slices and a biscuit with a satin fist. At the end of the first episode, Simon devised a despicable plan where he and Daphne pretended to fall in love so that Whistler and all thirsty noble mothers would leave him alone, and all bachelors would yearn for Daphne even more. . The two accomplices walked to the dance floor hand in hand, and the fireworks in the background were not the only sparks of joy for the party.
