Harlots Hulu Original Show


I watch far too much tv. I spend most my nights writing with tv shows playing in the background. I loved the idea of this show. I am a huge lover of costuming.

Hulu’s description: “Set against the backdrop of 18th century Georgian London, Harlots is a powerful family drama offering a brand-new take on the city’s most valuable commercial activity – sex. Based on the stories of real women, the series follows Margaret Wells and her daughters as she struggles to reconcile her roles as mother and brothel owner. When her business comes under attack from Lydia Quigley, a rival madam with a ruthless streak, Margaret will fight back, even if it means putting her family at risk.”

The show has everything you want in a show about pros. Drama, intrigue, sex and love. it’s hard to see women who sell themselves as women for many, this show tries to remind that at the end of the day we all share in wanting the same things.

The show’s costumes are beautiful and the story is entertaining. I really enjoyed all the actors and the emotions since this is a show about women being pros. It’s interesting to see the interactions of the women and their reactions. Since  not everyone that chose the life truly wanted to be there. The auctioning off of the madam’s daughter made me laugh because I assume that was very common in whorehouses in the past.

If you like period shows, if you like shows with a bit of sex, if you like shows with sass you should check this one out.
