‘Bridgerton’ Fans Needs to Binge This More NSFW Netflix Show

Intrigue, secret attraction, lust, and royalty all combine in some of the best period dramas like Bridgerton. Steamy scenes and secrets make the best of the historical drama series genre downright impossible to pass up. However, if you enjoyed Bridgerton‘s first season, there is another series on Netflix you will die for.

The hot and steamy ‘Bridgerton’ series

England’s well-off families prepare for the season with new debutantes to showcase for the Queen. Daphne Bridgerton, played by Phoebe Dynevor, is the diamond of the season, chosen by the Queen as the highest debutante choice. Normally that would mean that the eligible men would fight for her hand, however, issues arise, and her prospects dwindle.

Eventually in an effort to attract new marriage prospects and reduce pressure on the Duke, the pair team up in order to present a false relationship to incite jealousy and increase Daphne’s ranking among the debutante. Try as they may their false relationship develops into a steamy lust-filled secret.

However, the Duke’s past holds him back from marriage, even after being caught in a dark garden with Daphne. The series steams up more as the marriage situation settles and focus shifts to the other Bridgertons. It’s not the only period drama that is getting the audience heated up. Netflix has another period drama to hold you over until the second season arrives.

‘The Cook of Castamere’

England isn’t the only country that can have hot and steamy period dramas. The Cook of Castamere proves that the Spanish know a thing or two about love and lust as well. The series features yet another Duke that faces a wretched past. This time the death of his beloved wife and unborn child has ruined his bliss.

Months later still caught in the throes of his grief the Duke is forced by the King to throw a gala in his home for the royal court. Several staff issues are intermingled into the storyline as the cook Clara is introduced. However, Clara has her own secrets like her debilitating anxiety outdoors.

At the end of the gala, Clara is noticed by the Duke, but he is swiftly carted away by society’s matchmaking mothers that are trying to get him to remarry. Between the fighting and steamy scenes, there is a lot of characters to follow through the series without enough time for the main story to develop naturally.

Decider‘s call? Skip it, the series doesn’t stand up to Bridgerton‘s erotic period drama. It does have its good elements and similarities to the series set in England, but it seems to be missing an element or two.

If you love ‘Bridgerton’ is ‘The Cook Of Castamere’ worth watching too?

Spending the weekend binging Bridgerton (again) is a good way to spend some hours watching the relationships and dreamy cast members deny their love and face the future together. Is The Cook Of Castamere up for the challenge of meeting Bridgerton’s glory?

The Cook of Castamere is set in Spain about a century before the English Bridgerton. While they are similar cases of Dukes finding love, the main difference is the Duke’s tragic background. Bridgerton‘s Duke isn’t looking to marry to keep a promise to his father to not carry on his line because of his treatment during childhood. The Duke of Castamere is merely trying to get through a forced duty to the crown to throw a gala after the tragic death of his family when his eye falls on the anxious cook. The steamy scenes are better in Bridgerton, but there is plenty to see in The Cook of Castamere as well. You can watch both by streaming on Netflix and decide which is truly your favorite.
