‘Always remember you have a family’ – The Crown (Series 2) 2017

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening, loyal readers. Good weekend? I do hope you’re getting all your Christmas shopping done!
Now, this review needs no introduction. It’s blown up everywhere, with even my Grandmother using a Netflix account to watch it. That’s right – it’s The Crown. I don’t want to have to say spoilers on a historical TV show, but I don’t think I can avoid them this week so…

SPOILERS AHEAD!

The Crown intricately draws the life of Queen Elizabeth II (the UK’s current Queen for any confused international readers) from the day of her wedding to Prince Philip in 1947 to (currently) 1963. Each season, so far, has documented about a decade of her life. Unfortunately, that means bidding goodbye to Claire Foy who’s portrayed her for seasons 1 and 2, as she’s now too young for the role.

It’s incredibly historical, with even the Queen saying that pretty much all of it happened (bar it being a bit more dramatised than real life), and really has been an amazing thing to watch. I can’t say I love a series more, to be honest. They showed JFK’s death this season, and I sobbed like a baby – I am not a huge JFK fan, not being an American of the 1960’s, I know little about him… but the way it was depicted… I couldn’t stop… I’ll blame it on good acting and move on.

I’m sat here trying to think of something bad to say about it… the only thing I can think is that it’s just not long enough and I want to see more. Perhaps having all the episodes come out at once is bad for my health, as I just binge watch it…
Honestly, The Crown is a delight to watch, and I think even the most staunch republican can enjoy it for what it is. The acting, cinematography, settings is all superb, A+, and I can’t wait to rewatch it again and again till season 3.

Have you seen The Crown? What did you think? Love it, the acting, the characters… everything? Or are you too much of a republican to enjoy it? I’d love to know! Leave a comment down below!

    Thanks for the new things you have unveiled in your text. One thing I’d prefer to reply to is that FSBO interactions are built after a while. By launching yourself to the owners the first weekend their FSBO is usually announced, prior to masses start out calling on Friday, you build a good link. By giving them methods, educational elements, free accounts, and forms, you become a great ally. Through a personal desire for them as well as their scenario, you create a solid link that, on most occasions, pays off when the owners decide to go with an agent they know plus trust — preferably you actually.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and amusing,
    and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is
    an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I found this in my hunt for something
    regarding this.
