The second season will have you feeling very Bollywood, not only because of the K3G cover but also because of the screenplay. However, this is not the only Indian influence in the series. The Sharmas are a single mother, Lady Mary Sheffield Sharma (Shelley Conn), and two half-sisters, Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley) and Edwina Sharma (Shelley Conn) (Charithra Chandran). Like in any quintessential Hindi film, Kate and Anthony get off to a bad start and pick continuous clashes with one another before they know each other's names. We naturally expect them to be potential partners who have a meet-cute.
The series is set in the Regency era, but did women really do heavy breathing with their bosoms while being turned on? Except for near the end of the series, that's the most sex scenes you can consider in the rest of the season.
However, I am far ahead because Bridgerton season two moves at the speed of a snail. Thankfully, the producers left it up to the viewers to correctly predict everything and did not include any surprises this time. It is, however, a slow burn that captivates interest after episode six.
The creators did not go colorblind with the second season, but they did manage to bring diversity to the screen. But having only the Haldi ceremony as part of the marriage ceremony, well, that was the end of their research. Apart from "Bombay," "Appa," and "Amma," a little more Indian culture would've made it more impactful.
Bridgerton season two is less scandalous and sparks less sexual passion than the first. Chris Van Dusen takes a more straightforward approach to storytelling, which is neither novel nor exciting.
