Yes, I Watched a Regency…
For the second year in a row. Four episodes in the last two days. Kris had to explain a bunch of stuff to me, but some pretty good acting and the characters were likable, so I’ll watch the third season if there is one.
Interesting difference in plotting from this show to others. These episodes were mostly an hour in length and if the characters had only talked, nothing would have happened, but as it was not a lot happens. Where, say, The Rookie fifty things happen, ten viewpoints, and a ton of stuff, and it is only 15 minutes into the episode. When Magnum does their thrillers, the hour flashes past. Plotting and pacing, very, very different from a Regency to a Thriller.
But of course, Magnum and The Rookie don’t have sex scenes like Bridgerton. Yow. Seems like sex in the Regency period makes up for a lot of standing and dancing.
So you can learn pacing watching entertainment television. Just got to listen to your little voice. And you got to have a watching partner who knows the difference between a Lord, a Duke, and a Viscount and why it makes sense none of the characters simply talked. She’ll have to explain it to me again next season and remind me what happened this season and the first season. Pretty sure all of that will be gone from my mind by tomorrow. Just like a Rookie plot and a Magnum plot.
But still fun entertainment.
