Hello Dear Reader ......I seem to always be late with shows. It’s a trend with me, but oh well I guess the saying "better late then never" applies here too. "Bridgerton" isn’t one I was so sure that I wanted to watch, or that I’d even like it but I was wrong. I loved it, and not only does it have romance in it, friendship and family there’s even a little mystery to go along and that’s in the form of who is this mystery writer. That keeps everyone on their toes. Though, Dave said he figured it out. I did not, and was totally floored when I found out who it was. Well, like Dave said it’s always the person you’d least expect, and one that can get by unseen and unnoticed.
A little hint there for those that still may have not seen it, and apparently these are books, which I didn’t find out until after I watched, and no I haven’t read them. The first season is the first book though, as I think the second season will follow the second book. Now I won’t really go into detail here because if I do that would basically give away the whole story line, and I don’t want to ruin it for any other musers that might have yet not seen it, so my advice if you haven’t. There’s still time before season two. It’s a quick binge and once you start, you won’t be able to stop.
Dave - Dave Christy loves horror, music, documentaries and more. He is also the co-runner of several fan based groups including Morningstars (THE Lucifer fan group also run by Melanie), and now is a member of the VIPers Spotlight Lounge team for Melanie's Muses. Other than "In The Spotlight" Features -check out his "31 Days Of Halloween Movies"
Bridgerton. Right off the bat, it had 2 things going against it. 1. I don’t watch a lot of “old timey” shows and movies. A few may catch my eye but not a lot. 2. I don’t do a lot of drama besides crime drama, unless there is something weird about it like “Twin Peaks”. So this was not really on my radar at all. It was closer to the “avoid at all costs" list. Also, everyone I heard talking about was talking about the romance and love story. Nope, I don’t do those either. 3 strikes and it should be out, right? Well, after Jenn watched it, I checked out the trailer again. The mystery writer aspect got me hooked. I could always go for a good mystery. It was enough of a secondary plot device that kept me interested even though I couldn’t care less who was dating who, etc. So we’ll see what Season 2 brings and if it can hold my attention now that the mystery was uncovered.
