Bridgerton viewers slam 'off-putting' and 'odd' major detail after part two of season 3 finally drops on Netflix

Bridgerton viewers slam 'off-putting' and 'odd' major detail after part two of season 3 finally drops on Netflix

The third season of Bridgerton has gone down a treat with viewers - but some are pointing out an issue with the characters

Dearest gentle readers: This article contains spoilers for Bridgerton

The latest episodes of Bridgerton are finally on Netflix at long last and we're pretty sure we didn't blink throughout any of the episodes.

The 'ton provided romance and drama in equal measure and we all rejoiced when Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) got her happily ever after with the man she has always loved, Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton).

The friends-to-lovers duo embarked on a passionate relationship that balanced chemistry and loyalty in perfect measure.

They got hitched and welcomed a baby into the world, and Penelope was free to live with her identity as the real writer behind Lady Whistledown's society papers being out in the open.

Now that the dust has settled on the Regency-era romance, viewers are combing through each and every fine detail as they're not ready to let it go just yet.

With details such as the logo for Whistledown's gossip column changing, and people clocking on to Eloise simply having to marry in a future season, it seems there's nothing eagle-eyed Bridgerton fans will miss.

While the general consensus has been that the latest season was seriously amazing, it seems some viewers do have one gripe.

One user took to the Bridgerton forum on Reddit to share some thoughts.

They wrote: "This is extremely nit picky, but I saw someone on TikTok point this out, but the language in S3 was so odd??

"It felt wayyyyy too modern and was missing the slang from the early 19th century.

"For example, Kate saying she was “pregnant” instead of saying she’s “with child” which feels more authentic to that time period.

"I also noticed the language difference when rewatching S1, things like “must make haste” or “condition” things like that felt so natural and made the time period more realistic. Again it’s a small thing but I just noticed the 19th century slang was missing in S3."

And it seems others shared the same thoughts.

One person wrote: "That's a good point. It's like this season's universe forgot about Eloise's fantastic line from S1 - "How does a lady come to be 'with child?'"

Another claimed it was 'so distracting' and 'almost as bad as the makeup and fake nails and lashes'.

"Even “hello” wasn’t an established greeting in 1815." they added.

While someone else said it was 'very off-putting', and that they 'don’t see themselves rewatching S3'.



Another chimed in with their theories on why it feels different to earlier seasons.

They wrote: "I mean that's what everyone on the other Bridgerton subreddit kept saying they wanted. A completely modern story in pretty dresses."

I guess fans will have to wait until future seasons to see whether the script will return to tradition - or become even more modern.

Bridgerton is available to stream on Netflix.
