Reign

ReignStarringAdelaide Kane, Megan Follows, Torrance Coombs

Written byLaurie McCarthy, Stephanie Sengupta

Directed by: full list on IMDB

Year: 2013-2014

Plot: Ups and downs of courtly life of one Mary Queen of Scots.

Pros: Pretty castles, pretty interiors.

Cons: Too fictionalized to be called historical, too simplistic in language and manners to be called political, too opportunistic and haphazard in costume design to be plausible as a XVI century period piece. We expected that the next thing to escape King Francis’ lips would be ‘Mary, that’s so, like, not cool.’
