'VERSAILLES' EPIC TV SERIES SEASON 2 TEASER WITH GEORGE BLAGDEN, ALEXANDER VLAHOS! BBC'S 'SS GB' ALTERNATIVE HISTORY MINI SERIES TRAILER WITH SAM RILEY, KATE BOSWORTH

'VERSAILLES' EPIC TV SERIES
SECOND SEASON TEASER!
We continue with epic treats, people, after the teaser for The Last Kingdom two days ago! Canal + has released the first teaser for the second season of their smash hit historical series VERSAILLES charting the life of the famous Sun King which should, as far as we've heard, air this spring and will again be broadcast later this year for US audience by Ovation, after the first season became their best watched programme ever. BBC Two will again air the English language series over in Great Britain. The first season was sold in 135 countries around the world.
THE SUN KING  
Our beloved George Blagden will put on the lace, silk and royal frills as the Sun King again! The biggest budgeted French series ever has been greenlit for second season even before the airing of the opening one in Winter 2015! Season two looks at the dark underbelly of power as Louis sees the dream of his grand palace crumbling before his eyes. With phase one complete, most of France’s eminent lords and ladies now live under the Sun King’s roof. Drugs, gambling and alcohol are rampant, as nobles begin to poison each other in order to get closer to him. Blinded by passion for his mistress, Louis refuses to listen to the advice of the church and his closest advisors and leaves for war against arch enemy William of Orange, but he must discover the path back to light and redemption to save his vision of Versailles. Alexander Vlahos will return in the role of his royal brother Monsieur Philippe Duke of Orleans and as you can see from the photos he will be, or shall I say BI, naughtier than ever before.


'SS GB MINI TV SERIES
FIRST TRAILER IS HERE!
Meanwhile, BBC has released the trailer for their new alternative history series SS GB which will air later this month in five episodes! Sam Riley plays a British homicide detective who investigates a murder in a German occupied England in a parallel universe where the Nazis won World War II. Kate Bosworth, Aneurin Barnard, Jason Flemyng round up the cast.

  2. Glad to hear that George Blagden has a hit on his hands! I don't know that this series has been broadcast yet in Canada. If it has, I missed it.

    1. it is very naughty, though not shockingly as I expected before, it is not about getting nekkid at all unlike some other of the epic series right now

    1. it is not overly naughty, one would expect nekkid bums and tits and willies all the time, but there were maybe three naughty scenes in the whole series. I did like it and can't wait for the new season.

  9. SS GB sounds kind of intriguing. It would be interesting to see what kind of world it would be if the Nazis had won. (I'm very grateful they didn't, though!)

    1. not that there is any change, the fascists are ruling everywhere, what is different between them and Obama's 30,000 dropped bombs in eight years? Or the intercontinental exodus he started? Not very different
