Let me just start that I am a fan of the books so I am watching this as I did when I watched all the live actions of Pride and Prejudice, with eyes finally getting my wish of seeing my fave books come to life, and I was not disappointed.
1. If you are into the ACCURATE retelling of history then I'm telling you right now skip this (which I have seen the couple of reviews hating it already). This isn't about the accurate retelling of history it's just a show that has taken freely a specific era of history - the outfits, the vibe, the "marriage" centered plots...etc. So if the "diversity" and "wokeness" takes you away from the story then you will have a bad time. This isn't a documentary. This isn't a biography. This isn't a true story.
2. If you're into the book series do give this a try! Of course it wouldn't be 100% accurate but I did feel that it was very true in how romance book genre goes. It's like a whimsical romance. Glazed over. Or whatever term. Something like those Hallmark Christmas romance movies but with more mature scenes. And the I feel like the cast did the books justice.
3. If you're just looking for a Pride and Prejudice or historical setting romance show then do give this a try!
