1ST 'REIGN' SEASON 3 TRAILER HAS A TIGER, 3 QUEENS AND SWORDS DRAWN! BRENDA STRONG JOINS 'THE 100' SEASON 3 AS THE ICE NATION QUEEN!

 'THE 100' SF TV SERIES
BRENDA STRONG JOINS THE CAST AS THE ICE NATION QUEEN
Two queens for you today, minions! You must first bow to the new queen of the Ice Nation, Nia, who was mentioned before but will appear for the first time in the new third season of popular sf series THE 100! Brenda Strong will play the Ice Queen who has ruled her people for many years while holding onto power through ruthlessness and savvy! She does what she must to maintain her power, even when it puts her at odds with those closest to her. Pop star Shawn Mendes will  also appear in the first episode of the new season as he's playing a scrappy young Ark survivor who gets into a tricky situation and uses his particular talents to get out of it.

 'REIGN' EPIC TV SERIES
TIGERS AND QUEENS IN THE FIRST SEASON THREE TRAILER
And I stand corrected since it isn't two but four queens today, having in mind that there are three of them in the third season of CW's historical series REIGN with Queen Elizabeth (Rachel Skarsten) getting into some wicked shenanigans with Queen Mary of Scots and France (Adelaide Kane) and queen Catherine de Medici (Megan Follows), for which you can see the first teaser trailer today! CW has moved the show to Fridays and has ordered only 18 episodes this season. They're obviously trying to spice up the story since the audience was left disappointed with the implausible  behaviour of the main characters in the previous run. While his mother is trying to dethrone his wife Mary conspiring secretly with Elizabeth, French King Francis (Toby Regbo) will keep trying to help his cheating, treacherous spouse.

OTHER NEW CAST MEMBERS
I've already reported that Tom Everett Scott will join the cast as Elizabeth's counsellor. The casting is currently on for the role of Elizabeth's lover Robert Dudley and his wife Amy, as well for a pirate who will be the love interest of Greer, Mary's flimsy lady in waiting. I've also already reported that Spencer MacPherson will play French prince Charles, and that Sameer Usmani, Nick Lee and Ben Geurens have also joined the cast.

    1. I think you might like it... it's light and dynamic and has tons of gorgeous people in it.... admittedly the first season was better since in the second one they all became crazy and started behaving abnormally... so I probably wouldn't watch it with kids since they became quite immoral towards the end of the season

    2. Thanks for the heads up. Allison has been wanting to watch some scary shows with me lately. I thought about letting her watch The Walking Dead with me, but they have some sexual scenes in them too, that I don't think would be appropriate for her. Then again, I am kind of a prude when it comes to my kids seeing those things. I cringed when they implied The Evil Queen was having sex with some other character in Once Upon A Time. At least they didn't drag it out though.

    3. sister. sex in WALKING DEAD (Can't say I remember any, they're not exactly shagging eachother in the time of apocalypse) is not what you should be concerned about but all the violence in it... I mean, it is not a meaningless one, like in GOT, and always has a deep message, but it still extremely graphic.... I'd rather let my kids grow up with porn than with violence :)
      Did you know that Israel has the lowest rate of STD and teenage pregnancies? You know why? Because they have sexual education from age 7!

    4. I just want her to watch an episode so she'll quit hounding me to take her to a haunted house this year. I know she can't handle it but she swears she can. Just want to give her a little taste of what she'd see when we get there. We are not taking her though. I think she'd give me massive headaches from screaming all the way home ;)

    5. yes, better take her to an orphanage or something like that... to play with the orphans and give them some smiles instead of screams :)

  3. I tried watching Reign, but ultimately it was too teenybopper for me. Which is okay as there are other period shows coming up to keep me happy for a while.

    1. some coming up to you as we speak :) I can't say I love REIGN, it's too stupid at points, but it is dynamic and in my genre so I kept watching it... but it did get inexplicably stupider in the second season ... kinda like where USA is today.... make everything more stupid and immoral

    2. Well you've got to dumb things down, pander to the stupid and get those ratings up. Stupid and sleazy sells. I keep thinking "It can't get much worse than this" Then I walk out my door and say "Holy shit, it just did"

    3. I reckon it can get worser and worser :)
      They've even made the design of sites stupider and simpler because most of nowadays people are to plane to get a bit more complex structures not to mention art

  4. Well gee, my comment has nothing to do with Queens; does that matter? (smile)

    I love the little cartoon of you sitting on the green couch and a popcorn by your side. Will you make T shirts??

    1. I should, any ideas how to do it? I know there's an online shop which prints them and sells them for you but never got the time to investigate it better

    2. I bet Alex Cavannaugh would know. I know the A-Z challenge group has a fellow blogger that does them at his company.His name is Jeremy and sometimes he comments on here.

      Sorry I have nothing else to advise yet.

    3. yes, Jeremy hasn't been around here in ages... he did once tell me I could make big bucks selling my T.shirts :)

  5. I watched the first episode on Netflix and it just didn't draw me in. I might have to give it a second chance!

    1. it does get better later on... if you can stand the teensy lead actress who acts like she's in a school play :)

  6. The 100 is one I've heard about and think I'd like but haven't seen yet - I'll have to see if our stations carry it :)

    1. I watched both seasons because it kinda draws you in... but at some point it was too violent for me... you know, when they lose the story and go just all out violent... it seems to be happening with all other shows these days

  7. Well, hello queens! !! I think Jax should be a queen and you can be the king, Dez. All hail the King and Queen of blogger. :P

  8. Here's to the Queens! Love their clothes. Makes me wish I actually lived in that time.

    1. not that those clothes above have any connection with the real period :) they mostly use haute couture gowns of famous current designers in the show... she got married in something Elie Saab would design :)
