Original Content podcast: Bridgerton is an addictive reimagining of Jane Austen-style romance

Bridgerton, the Shondaland drama that launched last month on Netflix, offers a few key updates to the standard formula of Regency-era romance.
For one thing, theres a racially diverse cast, with Black actors taking on the role of early 19th-century English nobility and royalty. (At one point, one of the characters offers an unconvincing explanation for why this is the case, but we and the show mostly ignored it.) For another, theres a healthy dose of sex; Bridgerton emphatically does not shy away from showing viewers what its unbelievably attractive cast gets up to in the bedroom.
On the latest episode of the Original Content podcast, we have our quibbles some of the character motivations can be a bit frustrating, and while we enjoyed the whole season, the first few episodes were by far the most addictive and compelling.
