It's a lot different than Dexter! ;-) I'm enjoying it so far.

Planning out 60 episodes over 6 seasons seems pretty ambitious. I am very intrigued though. I'll probably give this a look at some point in the next couple of weeks.

Is there any violence or anything? I don't need it to be Game of Thrones level but it would be nice if there was some sort of consequences involved.

Theres no violence lol.

Its about Queen Elizabeth, starts out with her wedding, her children, her becoming Queen, being the monarch, and the politics and pressures around it. I doubt they will find a point in her history where she got into a gun battle.

Production quality is as good as any movie coming out of the UK. 4k looks great.

So I'm four episodes in now and I am really loving this show. I'm liking it way more than I thought I would. Claire Foy's portrayal of the Queen is really great, not to mention the rest of the cast is pretty good as well. I'm also a big fan of the show's musical score. Really elevates certain moments and adds brevity.

So I spent most of the day marathoning the back half of the season and I was pleasantly pleased all the way through. This was a really great show. Now that I have finished it I see why it was one of the big winners at the Golden Globes. Claire Foy is fantastic in her role. I was just happy with all the casting. The music and presentation is perfect. I can only imagine how expensive this show was to make. Anyway, I'm not eagerly awaiting the seasons to come. The final episode left us on a lot of different cliffhangers with a lot of relationships and matters hanging in balance.
