This show is already frustrating me. Such a great cast stuck with such terrible scripts. Read more

This show seems like it's been made up by the writers week by week, but it's based on a book, so...

When Anne says Charles is older than his years, she doesn’t mean the good things about being old (perspective, wisdom, patience), she means that he’s stuffy, rigid, hostile to change, cantankerous, and out of touch.

Oh totally agree. But she was very pretty for the british royal set, especially for at the time. But she cannot be compared to supermodels. But I also think it is almost ridiculous when people put down people’s looks when they get older, even with men I remember people snarking on Schwarzenegger when someone took a Read more

I don’t think Philip was threatening Diana. He was speaking from experience about how ugly it is for everyone when royal family feuds become public.

Charles Dance was too perfect a casting choice as Mountbatten! I don’t think he would do an older Philip too well. Read more

Almost every actor in this show is failing at an American accent, it’s really distracting. Even Donald Sutherland’s Canadian slips through. The police detective I guess they just gave up and made the character Italian (?) for some reason? He’s not even good in the role, only thing he seems to have going for him is a Read more

Tobias Menzies and Erin Doherty were both stand outs

Also why is it Johnathon’s fault if the sister, who he supposedly left in another room just to go to the kitchen to make a snack, ran outside and got hit by a car. Read more

Jonathan Pryce as Philip? I love me some Jonathan Pryce but I think the show missed their shot casting Charles Dance as Mountbatten. Dance looks freakishly like Phil and would have been perfect for season 5-6.

The Prosecutor’s opening statement seemed more like a defense attorney setting up reasonable doubt. “The defendant and victim had sex, were having a affair, no motive, oh, and we don’t have the murder weapon either.”

In fairness, she looks less plastic here than she did in Big Little Lies 2, where she had an uncanny valley type of look about her

This series is fucking terrible with a prestige overcoat. Not even a guilty pleasure kind of series.

It’s all in the eyes. It has to be, considering the rest of her face is incapable of moving.

Five episodes in, I’m still not sure what I feel about this show. Bored is part of it. Also, I think directors overestimate how interesting it is to watch long closeups of a mum Kidman looking all mysterious. It’s a very one-note performance, to me. I usually like Kidman’s work but here, I have nothing to hang on to, Read more

The biggest clue to the identity of the killer is the affair Jonathan had with an unnamed woman before the affair he had with Elena. His attorney asked him for the name but we didn’t get to hear it. I am sure the identity of that woman is Lily Rabe’s Sylvia, Grace’s best friend. Remember that Sylvia said Jonathan had Read more

So, are just going to ignore the questionable judgement of the parents from both sides for bringing their kids to trial, fully knowing that there would be some very explicit and graphic details discussed?

Also, maybe it’s the dad in me, but I found it troubling that the defense lawyer instantly whipped out the bloody Read more

At a time when I need all the distraction I can get from the knowledge that I won’t see any of my family or friends back home until God knows when, I am beginning to sharply resent this show for getting worse instead of better.

Yeah, I’ve been a bit baffled by how much Margaret is presented on the show as if she’s completely alone when she had two children who should be young adults by this point in the narrative.
