Ravishing costumes, sumptuous sets, diverse casting, plotting mothers, eligible daughters, sassy sisters, dashing dukes, bossy brothers and oh.. Jonathan Bailey in the full nuddy within the first twenty minutes... 😏
I'm finding it impossible to watch, feels like second-rate American Jane Austen fan fiction and the lead girl is awfully bland. Bailey alone and the rather fetching lead chap aren't enough to keep me engaged. I'm in the middle of episode two, does it get better?
I enjoyed it, but there was a lot wrong with it. The main issue being Daphne being so utterly forgettable and boring.
Didn't realise until the end that I'd gotten two of her brothers mixed up throughout the whole thing, so now I have no clue which brother was doing what, or who.
The diverse casting explanation felt a bit shoehorned in and was rather unbelievable, would have been better to just not explain. As far as I'm concerned the opportunity to have Regé-Jean Page on my screen in Regency clothing is quite explanation enough.
