Bridgerton: My New Comfort Show, And It Might Become Yours Too

Netflix's new period drama is a hit!

Bridgerton: My New Comfort Show, And It Might Become Yours Too

Who doesn't love a good period drama, especially once produced by Shonda Rhimes, the infamous creator of Grey's Anatomy? I personally love a good period drama, especially Downton Abbey and Little Women. I was immediately excited to watch Bridgerton on Netflix since it takes place during 1800's England, one of my favorite time periods to see on screen.

I had high hopes about Bridgerton before watching, and I was NOT disappointed. This show brought 1800's England to life, from the clothes to the story line, I loved it all. I actually liked all of the main characters, all of the individual storylines, and how the show ended.

Bridgerton had a beautiful aesthetic and all of the drama as a regular season of Grey's anatomy. Lady Whistledown, an anonymous writer that seemed to know everything and anything about all of the potential couples, kept the drama circulating throughout the series. She made the show scandalous, revealing that Marina was pregnant and that Daphne turned down the prince's proposal; it kept everyone on their toes.

The show follows two main families and the drama they individually go through.

From the Bridgerton family, Daphne has two main suitors, the Duke of Hastings and the Prince of Prussia. Daphne has a hard decision to make, between love of the duke and the prince who can give her children. Daphne eventually choses for love, no matter what. When her and the Duke's marriage takes a turn for the worst, they must face their issues head on and talk about them. Daphne assures that she loves the Duke no matter what, even though he isn't "perfect", and that is just what he needed to hear to change his mind on having children.

Anthony, the man of the Bridgerton house, is seeing a woman outside of the ton (the "acceptable" women), who is an opera singer that he loves, but isn't socially accepted. Anthony has to make a hard choice, if he wants to go against what's expected of him or please everyone else. He eventually choses love, but it's revealed that she doesn't love him since he wants to change her. He ends up lost and alone, with no direction in the end.

From the Featherington Family, they are hosting Miss Marina Thompson during the season to find a husband. It is revealed in episode 2 that Marina is pregnant, and that the father is at war in Spain. With him not responding to her letters, Lady Featherington pushes Marina to find a husband before she starts showing; thus leading her to Colin Bridgerton. Marina and Colin end up "falling in love" and he proposes to her, without knowing she is pregnant. Penelope Featherington, who is Colin's best friend, decides to tell him Marina's secret so he doesn't get trapped in a marriage with a child that isn't his; which leads to Colin breaking the engagement and Marina and the Featherington family as outcasts.

The amount of drama in this series is thrilling and so entertaining. Plus, the level of production quality is absolutely amazing and beautiful; it's like watching eight mini movies. Period dramas have always been some of my favorite comfort shows and movies, and Bridgerton didn't disappoint!

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
