Phoebe Dynevor (Daphne Bridgerton) and Nicola Coughlan (Penelope Featherington) both played an Irish girl/woman in a series. Dynevor in Younger and Coughlan in Derry Girls. See more »
Multiple times, women sit and cross their legs at the knee. This is only a modern action. Ladies would cross their feet at the ankles, if anything. See more »
Whoever adapted the books for Netflix is tragically devoid of any wit whatsoever.
I was a fan of the novels. Julia Quinn is renowned for her quick-witted banter & her character - Lady Danbury - is an especially beloved old curmudgeon who infamously delivers the most rapier-like burns. Whoever adapted the books for Netflix is tragically devoid of any wit whatsoever. The writing is awful and so very unfaithful to the novels or even actual history that it is extremely difficult to immerse oneself in this travesty of a universe Shonda Rhimes has created. Terrible screenplay and woke-like revisions of history aside (I say this as a woman of color, FYI), some of the actors were absolutely dreadful. The amount of overacting we were subjected to by certain characters almost made it seem like they were playing caricatures of Quinn's originals. Abominable.
