Netflix: The Crown

Recommended Posts

I've binged on all 10 episodes. The beauty of this show is that, since it's based on actual people and events, there aren't really spoilers. That said, I'll give everyone interested some time to watch the show before I comment on anything specific.

 

All I'll say is it's a masterpiece and I found myself incredibly moved. It has also shifted some of my views about a few members of the Royal Family.

Considering my historical knowledge of the royal family is minimal at best, I DO expect to be surprised at points. Which is a good thing! (although perhaps not good for my UK history knowledge lol). I don't see this as much different than a TV series based on a book: All the answers are out there but it doesn't mean all are aware of them. So I think your instinct was correct lol

 

Looking forward to watching! It also looks excellently produced.

I'm five episodes in and I'm amazed at how much I like Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. Surprised they show

his ass so much, but maybe that's a well known thing about him?

I never paid much attention to her anointment to the throne, particularly when it happened or why, but I was emotionally driven by the death of the King. I guess because it is based on a true story, we won't get a lot of modern twists and turns we expect in a scripted series, but I definitely have love everything I've seen so far. Definitely plan on watching the remaining five and looking forward to where the series goes from here.

 

As for "Chewing Gum," I can't stop talking about that show with my friends and colleagues. Such a funny show. Came up on my Netflix last week and I binged all six episodes. Want more. When is more??? LOL
