  1. I agree with this. I just saw the movie this afternoon in a theater that had a pretty good "crowd" considering the pandemic. I never saw the play, never heard the music before, and really didn't know the story. So, leaving so many loose ends was unsatisfying. That being said, I did enjoy the movie. I wouldn't have cared about not knowing what happened to all the other characters if I didn't. Having seen and heard Hamilton a couple of times, the music was very Lin Manuel Miranda. There were a couple of homages to old Hollywood that I liked, e.g., the choreography in the pool that remi
  2. I have no idea how much money it takes to protect Harry and his growing family. But, certainly Prince Charles has more than enough cash to pay for or help pay for their security without him financially feeling it or burdening the taxpayer. Whether six or 36, Harry is still a member of the royal family, didn't choose to be, and is a target as such. The same for Archie and the coming baby. The only one who chose to be a part of it is Meghan, but that doesn't mean she deserves to be unprotected. Now that they've secured some employment, it may not be as much of an issue -- I don't know -- but it
  3. Being "hung up on protection" isn't a small issue. He is a mixed raced prince -- the first ever -- who would have to contend with racist in the U.K. Do you think this is nothing?
  4. I think she was "hung up" on the fact that as a non-prince and such, that he would not get the protection. That they didn't want to protect a mixed race child. It wasn't about the title, it was about the protection.
  5. Good to know. Yes, both Greg Wise and Carla Gugino are both beautiful in the Buccaneers and their love is heartbreaking. Based on the Edith Wharton unfinished novel. Highly recommend. On another topic, the idea that Simon and Daphne entered marriage without her knowing that he didn't want to have children is totally on him, being the most experienced and the person with the issue that's central to this discussion. She, understandably, thought he couldn't have them. I'm not shocked she felt blindsided when she found out.
  6. Any child born in a marriage is considered legally legitimate. Now, whether the child looks like the father -- whether suspected by the father or by anyone else is another issue. But, it's not a legal one.
  7. Marina and George ruined Marina's life. Marina was just spreading the ruin when she arrived in London and proceeded to agree to run away with Colin without telling him she was pregnant.
  8. Regarding the all white Bridgertons and Featheringtons, I am guessing they are trying to keep within the bounds of making the families believable in terms of genetics/biology -- for instance, consider the all black Bassett family -- but that doesn't mean there aren't mixed race members, like Marina and, if Daphne should get pregnant, Daphne and Simon's children. At least, that's what I'm thinking. Regarding Simon hanging around to see if Daphne is pregnant, he wouldn't want to abandon her if she indeed were pregnant. He doesn't want to be a father -- allegedly -- but he doesn't want to le
  9. A younger Polly Walker was in the movie Enchanted April which was wonderfully romantic and magical and almost fairytale-ish. Love that movie and bought it on DVD when it came out. If you have a chance, see it. And here she is on the promotional trailer.
  10. Hopefully, how Penelope ended up doing all of this will be explored in a future episode, with flashbacks. In fact, I would bet on it unless the writers are incompetent.
  11. I love The Buccaneers. Own a DVD of the series.... Just needed to say that.
  12. Maybe it's the Hallmark effect, but cable/broadcast television has tended to only adapt the most sugary, small town, goody-two shoes romances that are mostly very unexciting and perpetuate a lot of prejudices against the genre. And, frequently, they will cast older actors who are too old for the parts. It's refreshing to see them adapt a spicier romance with actors who are age appropriate. I haven't watched much of it but I think the Virgin River series has also been doing a good job. That book series, even though set in a small town, does not pull its punches.
  13. Here's an interesting article that was just posted. It's an interview with Nicola Coughlan who plays Penelope and sheds some light on how she sees Penelope, her role as Lady Whistledown, and how it effects the other characters. https://ew.com/tv/bridgerton-nicola-coughlan-penelope-interview/
