Having read this beloved series, I'm very disappointed with this adaptation. That being said, there are positive parts, but my problems lie with the additions in characters and storylines. There was no lighthearted funny parts as are in the books. The Bridgerton family seems not to like each other, and I just don't like what they've done with ridiculous costuming and modern music. I'm about 3/4 through and thinking of stopping and I definitely won't be watching season 2. A word about casting, I liked the casting and felt the actors chosen did a great job and spoke and carried themselves as I imagined while reading the books.
