The White Queen
« on: May 09, 2017, 11:30:20 AM »
Anybody watching this? It's kind of a Game of Thrones for the Shakespeare set, if you happen to like Henry VI - part 1, 2, 3. (which I admit I don't, almost always skipping right to Richard III.) It's from a book series, and tells the story of the war of the roses from the females perspecitves, the next series is The Red Queen - who would have guessed.

I've only watched the first two episodes but i still can't put these people in to the historical context. But Richard is stiring and I'll hold out till then, perhaps.

7/10 - not a lot of blood, it's a Cinemax production, I think, so a couple good sex scenes, but not to GoT caliber.
Everyone you will ever meet knows something you don't.
