I came in just to say how amazing I thought Claire Foy was in this, absolutely perfect performance, particularly considering how very restrained and gimmick-free it is.

Weird cover of How soon is now for the trailer but glad to see it's back, didn't know it was out soon. Always enjoyable viewing, despite some episodes being a bit boring.

I love this show. We only started watching it a few weeks ago and caught up just last week, it’s absolutely brilliant.

Good season but then Charles-Diana drama is just too juicy for it not to be a good watch. In fact you could argue they did not focus as much on it as they should have. Thatcher-Queen relationship was done very well too.

Watched the first two episodes this morning. Didn't like the last series much, this one looks like it will be better though.

Can someone put 'The' in the title? It's melting my head.

I am despite not having watched any of the other seasons.

It's very good, and leaves you wondering how on earth the monarchy has lasted this long.

I keep hearing the champions league anthem. I half expect Ronaldo to pop up with header somewhere.

Its quite remarkable, everyone starring in this seems to act out of their skin, as if in the role of their lives. Can hardly find a fault.

Not the kind of show I normally care about, but the quality is absolutely ridiculous. Production values, acting, filmography is all amazing.

Anderson is (!?) outdoing Meryl. MERYL!

Finished it last night. Anderson and Corrin as Thatcher and Diana really stole the season.

I think my home country was mentioned in this according to my Facebook feed. I'll need to watch now. Whenever Guyana is mentioned anywhere my country folks get really excited :)

I probably will despite my utter contempt for the royals. It also sounds like "The Troubles For Idiots" montage in the latest episode might trigger my better half as well.

On the other hand Charlie hates his depiction so I might enjoy that bit.
I have no love for the royals either but as a show, it’s very much up there with pretty much anything I’ve ever seen. Like Game of Thrones with a stiff upper lip. Pure quality from opening credits to costumes to script to acting to ... you get the drift. I was totally surprised by how much I liked it and settling down in Sunday to a new series was really exciting.

I feel a Christmas holiday binge might be in order.

:lol:

Should give it a watch though, very, very good tv.
Everyone is seemingly giving performances of their lives. Really struggling to think of a subpar acting in this show. Haven't got to Gillian Anderson playing as Maggie yet but apparently she nails it and then some.
