Everyone has been telling me that I need to watch Bridgerton. My friends keep saying I need to watch Bridgerton. Targeted ads insist that I gotta check out Bridgerton.

TWITTER will not stop suggesting that I need to watch Bridgerton.

And yet this this weird ironic quality to all of those recommendations?

I’m confused. And I don’t like being told what to do. If I’m going to watch this show, I want that to feel like a decision I came to on my own.

So here’s an experiment – I am going to look at some popular Bridgerton tweets and try to determine, from the tweet alone, what’s happening in this show and whether I should watch it.

Let’s go.

14. The Plot

What I surmise: there is a hot actor in this show.
Will that make me watch: maybe.

13. Xoxo

What I surmise: this man killed someone named Lady Whistledown with his scarf.
Will that make me watch: no, spoilers.

12. The Duke

What I surmise: Lady Danbury doesn’t like this Duke fella.
Will that make me watch: possibly, I love a good sass back.

11. Cake

What I surmise: cake.
Will that make me watch: yes.

10. Bee

What I surmise: bees symbolise bridges in this show, or something.
Will that make me watch: no, I am too dumb for symbolism.

9. Wisteria

What I surmise: in the land of Bridgerton, flowers defy the seasons.
Will that make me watch: ??

8. Eloise

What I surmise: Eloise is homeschooled.
Will that make me watch: yes, I too was homeschooled.

7. Daphne

What I surmise: Anthony is a jealous lover.
Will that make me watch: no, I hate triangles of all varieties.

6. Distraction

What I surmise: there’s a lot of sex in this show.
Will that make me watch: yes, for I too enjoy the sex.

5. Episode three

What I surmise: fancy dresses.
Will that make me watch: yes, I need tips.

4. Viscount

What I surmise: “viscount” is a word, apparently.
Will that make me watch: yes, now I need to know what it means and how to pronounce it like a fancy boi.

3. Glow stick

What I surmise: someone is injured.
Will that make me watch: maybe, it depends on how funny it is.

2. Hitting it off

What I surmise: this lady is some kind of matchmaker.
Will that make me watch: no, I don’t play with matches.

1. Pants

What I surmise: Simon has a weird member.
Will that make me watch: …yes.

Welp, guess I’m watching Bridgerton.

Have you seen it? What did you think? How much of that did I get right?
