A very boring show which looks like an attempt to cash in on the other and much better "House" series. Take a group of millennials dressed in Regency clothing behaving badly, completely unable to imagine what it was like in 19th century England, and you have the "inspiration" for "Regency House Party." The creators of this show must have had trouble finding volunteers judging from the young man with a thick cockney accent cast as a Regency gentleman. Not worth watching.

I thought this was boring, and I didn't like any of the cast members. Ended up skipping to the end of Disk 2 to see if anything ever happened, only to find that there is a Part 2 out there somewhere, which I will never see.

Sort of a "Bachelor" meets Jane Austin. Good for anyone who likes the historical "reenactment" shows.

This is a great series for anyone who is already a fan of the various "House" shows (Manor House, 1900 House, 1940's House, etc.). This one is definitely saucier than the other series but what can you do when you get 10 young singles together for the expressed purpose of matchmaking? The chaperones give the younger set a run for their money when it comes to drama however....
