Here's how Vulture describes Colin from Bridgerton:
He wants to be a writer, maybe, an idea introduced abruptly in the premiere, but he struggles to actually write anything even though he’s a wealthy man with lots of free time and the ability to publish whatever he wants. He wears a big Mr. Rochester–esque great coat and walks around with an unbuttoned shirt to signal his flirtation with Brontë-style masculine angst, but his sadness is unpersuasive at best and completely laughable at worst. (Kathryn VanArendonk)
While iNews recommends '12 sexy period dramas to watch after Bridgerton' including Poldark claiming that,
There’s something very Wuthering Heights about this adaptation of Winston Graham’s decade-spanning novels, as Poldark – a British soldier recently returned from the American War of Independence only to find that his lover, Elizabeth (Heida Reed) has shacked up with someone else – and Demelza – a rough-around-the-edges street urchin – fall in love against the wild backdrop of Cornwall’s windy beaches and coves. (Emily Baker)
According to Lifestyle.Inq, Jane Eyre is one of '5 classic novels for people who don’t like classic novels'.
Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Brontë
Classic novels: "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Brontë
If you’re currently in a really bad place in life, this book is for you. In the book, Jane Eyre transitions from being an orphan abused by her aunt to finding love and then almost dying, and then finally marrying her beloved. Talk about character development. Also, this book is actually kilig–worthy despite also being filled with horror and gore.
Quotable quote: “Every atom of your flesh is as dear to me as my own: in pain and sickness it would still be dear.” (Bea Amador)
More on Ian Bairnson's guitar on Guitar Player:
The Les Paul Custom responsible for the solo on Kate Bush’s Wuthering Heights has sold for £21,500 (approx $27,500) at auction. 
The figure vastly surpasses the estimated £10,000 it would accumulate at the auction at Gardiner Houlgate in the UK. Before fees, the winning bid clocked in at £17,000 (approx $21,824). 
The 1974 Les Paul Custom was played by Ian Bairnson, who had a broken arm at the time of tracking the chart-topping hit. 
Bairnson passed in 2023, aged 69, with Kate Bush taking to her website to remember his talents.   
She said: “We lost touch after we worked together on my early albums but I remember he had a lovely, warm smile and he played the inspired solo on Wuthering Heights with a broken arm. He was still wearing the cast! He was in a lot of pain but soldiered on and like all great artists, he truly suffered for his art.” (Phil Weller)
