The Crown was excellent. Can't wait for the next season. ...and how John Lithgow didn't win the other night for his portrayal of Winston Churchill still baffles me. He is amazing in this role.

Same here. "Versailles" looked like cheap trash with high school quality acting. "The Crown", however, is excellent and gets better as it goes along.

After watching a few more episodes of Versailles, I do think much of the initial sensationalism gets moderated and the story develops --- still slowly --- but enjoyably.

Put this together with "amateurish acting and dialogue," and we have some extremely negative language to describe a series, which, while it may not have suited everyone, was clearly a very professional production and well acted. This suggests to me that there may be something about the series that offends some people in some way. I'm at a loss as to what that may be.

I, too, thought John Lithgow did a really good job playing Winston Churchill. Of course, I never knew the fellow... But I have read a huge amount about Mr. Churchill. And John Lithgow's acting was very consistent with my understanding of Mr. Churchill's personality.

Claire Foy was excellent, also.

I thought "The Crown" was really a first class production and held our attention every moment.
