Critic Reviews for Bridgerton Season 1

All Critics (89) | Top Critics (40)

I was not madly in love with the show, but I was endlessly amused by it.

Jan 4, 2021 | Full Review…

It ultimately just feels hollow - but, unlike me, your mileage may vary.

Dec 28, 2020 | Full Review…

There are eight episodes of Bridgerton, and they all have endings that are like chapters in a good book: They leave you in a spot where you just want to read one more chapter before you turn off the light for the night.

Dec 28, 2020 | Full Review…

Bridgerton is amusing enough and will scratch a certain thirsty itch, but its themes about love, marriage, and class aren't quite as progressive as it would like to think.

Dec 24, 2020 | Full Review…

This is a handsome, lavish romance that will appeal to a large audience, but it's also painstakingly insubstantial.

Dec 23, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A sexy, joyous, colorful update of the classic will-they-or-won't-they Regency-era courting tale.

Dec 23, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Bridgerton" is sexy enough to make Jane Austen blush. This is not your father's ""Pride and Prejudice." It is very originally Shonda Rhimes first Netflix project.

Jan 26, 2021 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Bridgerton's directors inject a proper amount of fizz into the proceedings, but they'd be helped by snappier writing.

Jan 21, 2021 | Full Review…

Based on Julia Quinn's tantalizing bodice-rippers. it's perfectly timed frothy, fun escapism...

Jan 17, 2021 | Rating: 10/10 | Full Review…

Apart from the diverse cast and the regular bouts of bone-bumping, it was largely by the numbers costume drama stuff, the kind of thing a computer programme might have come up with if you typed in "sex, Austen, luxe fabrics".

Jan 13, 2021 | Full Review…

The on-screen information given for individual titles can be infuriatingly unhelpful.

Jan 8, 2021 | Full Review…

Sex, nudity, smoking in sumptuous, diverse period drama.

    Colorful, entertaining and diverse. A very enjoyable show.

    Gossip Girl as a Classical tale. Songs are nothing but perfect. Series was perfection. Loved it.
  • Jan 19, 2021
    it was ok but some parts are slow.
  • Jan 19, 2021
    Absolutely incredible
  • Jan 19, 2021
    Feast for the eyes with likeable characters, Bridgerton is a lovely escape from the doldrums of the pandemic.

    If you love chick flicks watch it
  • Jan 19, 2021
    Love the diversity here. I usually don't like Victorian films, but this was a treat indeed.
  • Jan 19, 2021
    Started off glamorously and beautifully filmed, descended into cheap porn when she finally gets her man. The main female character is completely mousy and it was hard to believe she was the crown jewel. The handsome brooding duke is far more enigmatic. The Queen is by far the best, and could have had a much bigger part. Lots of visual appeal, amazing costumes, filmography. Personally just didn't care for how the relationship devolved between the two leads. The younger sisters are great! As are the "working class" girlfriends of the Bridergton brothers. Many other subplots, that are enjoyable, including various deceptions. However, main criticism is too much waltzing and too much sex.
  • Jan 18, 2021
    Absolutely loved it and got obsessed!
  • Jan 18, 2021
    Overly contrived setting. Predictable and uninventive story line. Characters are fine actors but their chemistry is lacking. Visually fun otherwise fell flat on all counts.
