  1. Very good post, with a display of stunning pictures of the main characters, and a nice trailer! Thanks for sharing.

    I like period dramas, so I suppose it's a must-watch for me. Sadly, my TV is out of order, and I'm doing nothing at the moment about it. I've got other things on my mind, like the escalation in the south of the country with the rockets flying further to the center. Our neighbors are determined not to let the Eurovision take place in Tel Aviv.

    1. We've just got retweets from the executive producer and the writers of the show, so I'm guessing they liked the post too.

      Oh, hell, that's terrible. Our representative just had her first rehearsal in Tel Aviv today. But who cares about Eurovision if lives are in danger there :( I just pray that region of yours will find peace. Our too, as we're having problems with our Southern Region as well, sadly. Hope you will stay safe.

  2. I hope it came in with strong viewership numbers yesterday! I have been looking forward to seeing this since we first heard about it here.

    1. I haven't seen the ratings yet, but I see that the first reactions on their page are disappointing, everybody keeps saying the acting is terrible, I mean no surprise there, Charlotte Hope is as charismatic as a cup of tepid water LOL and everybody seems to hate the change of actors from previous series to this one. I don't know why they don't keep the same actors. But I'm watching for visual splendour anyhows :) I expect for acting and forced diversity to get on my nerves, so I'm prepared ahead for that lol

    2. That's too bad to hear. I suspect if it's already getting dismal reviews, I probably won't enjoy it much. I do love visual splendor, but if the acting sucks, no amount of pretty can save it in my book.

    3. It is half bad, half good reviews, so we shall have to trust our own judgement. They're all going mad that Harry is 16 not ten in the series, but how on Earth would you make a series out of the romance between Catherine and a ten year old boy? Some people are just stupid, I tell you that :)

  3. How come King Henry looks like a millennial?

    2. Ain't nothing like reciprocal love. I wish Kidman felt the same way about me.

    3. Did you see how horrible she was in Aquaman?

    4. Don't remind me. But she was excellent in Once in a Blue Moon.
