  1. Dark Season 3 The Queen's Gambit The Crown Season 4 Mrs America The Mandalorian Season 2 His Dark Materials Season 2 Blood of Zeus Season 1 Defending Jacob Rise of the Empires: Ottoman The Good Fight Season 4 La Casa de Papel Season 4 Lost in Space Season 2 Bridgerton Season 1 Raised by the Wolves Season 1 Lovecraft Country Season 1 Hollywood The English Game Altered Carbon Season 2 Young Sheldon Season 3 Outlander Season 5 Grey's Anatomy Season 17 I thought this one was a drama, and then it turned out to be a documentary, and then I found out it is actually a docuseries. Wonderfully narrated by Charles Dance, the story is about Mehmet the Conqueror and his conquest of Constantinople. The history buffs will surely love it. I know I have thoroughly enjoyed it.

The show is not without some truly interesting parts - the supporting cast is absolutely amazing (especially Eloise) and they make up for the dull love story that is at the center of this series. Shonda Rhimes remains the queen of colorblind casting and the entire thing has been done flawlessly in that regard. Not my two cents but interesting enough.

Pascal is amazing as the one true father in Hollywood these days. The show is rather nice and I truly like the main character. As for His Dark Materials, simply, Ruth Wilson. She is amazing in every scene and her confrontation with Lyra this season will be the scene to remember. Dafne Keen and Amir Wilson are also amazing and they have a great chemistry. Spoilers from the finale of His Dark Materials

But, this is what we needed this year. A sense of victory, a joy of overcoming the personal trauma and crisis. Truly great!
  5. @DMC scared us away I have seen the report of Duchess of Cornwall's charity page being swamped by negative comments. It is sad when people simply can't understand that this is, after all, a TV series.
  6. I would disagree with this, especially considering... Loving another woman is one story, being a bully completely another. And Charles in this series is a bully and if I may say, abuser. The bully of the worst kind. He doesn't just come of as negligent or careless, he was actively breaking Diana's spirit. He was practically verbally and psychologically abusing her in TV show. Also, I am not sure whether the portrayal of negligent father is accurate. From what I have learned from various news sources, he is quite a good father (if we are to trust media on this). If I understood correctly, he was supporting Harry's exit from Royal Family, even advising them what can and what can't be done (per some royal commentators). But Harry and Meghan made a spectacle of it. Charles loved another woman, this we know as a fact. But whether he was a negligent abuser as portrayed in TV series, that we don't know. Well, Peter Morgan wrote The Queen and the point there was that Queen chose her family over her country. And country didn't forgive her for that. There is a wonderful line that Helen Mirren uttered perfectly "THEIR grief?!" which expressed Queen's inability to prioritize the grief of the public to the devastating grief her grandsons were feeling at the moment.
  7. I am not sure we can take "The Crown" as the history lesson. I know the lines get blurry, but even if I am not acquainted with Windsor family and their history, I would not take what "The Crown" serves us as a fact. That said, I wouldn't say that Harry and Meghan are the only ones "exceeding the ceiling". Also, it is amazing the effort being made to make Markle a new Diana. One has to admire that PR. Me neither, but apparently Harry and Meghan made that condition. I suppose there was a fear with regard to the show's sixth season as 5th season would be enough to cover the 1990s. So the question was how far they were going. As I understand, the current plan is to do 5th season which would cover 1990s and Diana's death. Sixth season is not suppose to continue the show chronologically, it seems.
  8. So apparently, Harry and Meghan signed the deal with Netflix for their TV show (or whatever they will be producing) with one condition - for Netflix to end "The Crown" before their wedding You know, just when you think that the show made them all look like A-holes, the reality proved to be much worse
  9. I was speaking more about PR, not really about responsibility for death. I can imagine some PR expert in Buckingham Palace looking at this season and probably some headlines and telling "Again with this..." Oh, yeah. He is great. That said, I can't remember when I liked the character he played Pretty much yes. I think the most of what we discussed is related mostly to the series' narrative and not actual facts. *** I forgot about mention of abdication when Queen Mother and Princess Margaret argued. One really can not blame all on abdication but it did completely changed their lives. They were transformed to what Charles called "fringe royals" to the "main event". But even considering "fringe" pats of the family - Anne, Edward and Andrew, you just see how miserable they all are. Even more than that, there is nothing nice one can say about them. Like Duke of Windsor said in first season... They are ordinary, but put them crowns on their heads and you have a show. It's borderline pathetic.
  10. Oh, I wanted her to tell him "Sorry, darling, not my fault people like me better than her" or something like that. That said, I feel like Diana is the ghost that will forever haunt Windsors. She has been dead for more than 20 years, it's almost 30 years since the divorce and 40 since the marriage and YET it still has the power to move the people. After all that time, we are still not over her fate. I really can imagine someone in the Buckingham Palace saying "Jesus, we thought we are over Diana"
  11. Dark Season 3 The Crown Season 4 Mrs America Blood of Zeus Season 1 Defending Jacob The Good Fight Season 4 La Casa de Papel Season 4 Lost in Space Season 2 Raised by the Wolves Season 1 Lovecraft Country Season 1 Hollywood The English Game Altered Carbon Season 2 Young Sheldon Season 3 Outlander Season 5 Grey's Anatomy Season 16 Raised by the Wolves had incredible premise, strong cast, stunning visuals and yet, it narratively failed. Sci Fi can be complex without being incomprehensible. Dark is one of those examples where your mind is bent to the points of breaking but still you find some sense. Here, it just lacks any sense. The Crown was amazing. Strong performances by Gillian Anderson and Emma Corrin made sure to make the 1980s very interesting when it comes to the Buckingham Palace. There were a lot of great moments and between the music and the wonderful cast, this one continues to excel.
  12. Given the fact that Colman, Menzies and Bonham Carter are finishing, it seems natural that the younger cast would get recasted too. Oh, yes... Especially with regard to Diana... I hated them all. It was so insensitive, so selfish, so inhumane in the way they treated this girl. From Elizabeth and Phillip to Charles and yes, even, Camilla. And when Charles spoke about Diana hurting Camilla by being decent human being... I haven't had such strong desire to slap someone ever since the era of Joffrey and Ramsay.
  13. Yeah, Fagan episode was much better than IRA assassination of Dickie in terms of understanding the complexity of the motivation behind it. As for Lord Altrincham...
  14. When Phillip brought it up, I thought it would be left there. I was surprised to see him on screen. That said, I have finished the season. And oh boy, do I understand why the Palace is so angry about this. In previous seasons, I always thought that even though the show was aiming for objective POV, the narrative was pn the Crown's side. Overall, it was if not positive, then at least humane portrayal of these people. This year
  15. I think it all comes down to how familiar some of these characters are. I mean, I was born in 1989 in Serbia and Iron lady era was over by the time I became political or aware of her existence. So, I think that Gillian's performance may seem a bit like a caricature to Britons, but probably for the rest of us, she is doing a perfect work. You have a point. I am still debating Lithgow v Oldman in terms of who was the better Chruchill. I think Corrin gave more naturalistic performance than Anderson, but overall I think both women did amazing work. Not sure about this. I was listening to some of her interviews and it seems Helena understood Margaret perfectly. I will never forget the first shot of her holding the cigarette as Margaret - it was pure perfection. I feel as Colman simply didn't enjoy the role as Foy may have. I feel as if she came, she did her best, did her work and that's that. She is absolutely amazing but there is something missing. That said, I like her and Menzies together. I had such a great laugh, when in Episode 7 I am finishing the season today and all in all, it looks great.
