that new Netflix thing. it’s pretty good.

lavish, tremendous costume design, lots of interesting historical shenanigans, some stuff I wasn’t aware of POSS SPOILER: the deadly London smog of 1952the incredible John Lithgow as Winston Churchill, Prince Phillip being not so much of a dufus as he’s often made out to be (quite progressive and forward thinking, would you believe) and other stuff that I can’t be bothered to type out

six episodes in and I’d give it a solid 7.8/10.

let me know about it


#2

If it doesn’t end with the dissolution of the monarchy I’m out.


#3

one of those, eh


#4

Very much so.

I saw a Class War sticker on a lamp post that really tickled me once. It said “The Great Royal Debate - Do we hang them or shoot them?”

I don’t think you’ll find a ton of monarchists on here.

We rounded most of them up in a previous witch hunt.


#5

This is not for me.

On the plus side I have just scored six months free Netflix


#6

how come, man? are you a staunch republican? I thought you had german blood in ya? no further questions


#7

Yeah I am and in particular I really, really hate the queen.


#8

I don’t think you’ll find a ton of zombies on here, but The Walking Dead seems to be pretty popular

your point sucks, man


#9

wow. just wow


#10

not into the royals either; this is definitely not for me.

I’ve also not really liked the last few netflix shows I’ve started to watch at all. I guess I used to hope that they’d only commission programmes of high quality (i.e. things I like).


#11

Just adding my name to the “not for me” list.


#12

Your point is unfathomable.


#13

Is this one of those things where we pretend the royals are real human beings with feelings that we should give a shit about?


#14

Please tell me how.


#15

I’ll try and make it clearer. I don’t believe you have to be a supporter of the monarchy to enjoy this show. I ain’t much of a fan and yet I enjoy it.

this is all I have for you bud. I hope it’s sufficient


#16

POTY :male_couple_with_heart:


#17

I ain’t gonna watch it cos:

not interested in the Queen or them Royal fucks

fucking hate anything that even remotely looks like a period drama


#18

I said to Virgin that I was going to leave them so they knocked £15 off my bill and bunged me six months netters.


#19

Oh ok. That makes more sense.

That said, I actually hate the fact that we still have a monarchy so I’ll be avoiding it. It will just make me angry.

Sweet.
