Just plain bad
20 December 2013 | by kdevore-1See all my reviews

Really? I watched this hoping that it would be a class show. Instead, it's pure drivel. The characters are lifeless and I question its accuracy. Based upon others' reviews, other than the names, there is nothing historical about this show; not the wardrobe, not the music, and apparently according to what I've read, not even some of the intrigue.

The music should be Renaissance for the period of Mary, Queen of Scots, but instead, I'm hearing music akin to Mumford & Son with the odd bodhran thrown in for a "Scots" feel (though the bodhran is really Irish in origin). And sometimes, it's just Emo British folk rock.

The wardrobe department seems to have taken contemporary prom dresses and tries to pass them off as period attire. Seriously, sleeveless dresses in the 1500's? What happened to the high necks, tapestry clothing, bustles? The girls in their dresses look more like they are ready to go clubbing rather than rule countries or be ladies-in-waiting. The men look more like they're straight out of Robin Hood and Nottingham Forest rather than France. Wrong time period.

I found the actors shallow, unsure as to what accent they are to be using, and have no presence or substance. It's more like watching wet cardboard than actors portraying real people.

This was a great opportunity to help us Americans understand a very significant person of UK history, glean some insight into UK/France royal lineages, and see historical intrigues of our cousins across the pond. Opportunity blown. I saw the pilot episode. That was about all I could take. I gave it the full hour to be fair, but couldn't wait for this to be over. The producers either should have made this a true period TV show focusing on Mary, Queen of Scots, or if they were so keen on keeping the rambling lavishness and contemporary music, omit any correlation to real history and focus on making this a quasi-historic-esque fun-run. If this wasn't supposed to be based upon historical reference, I'd have enjoyed this much more. As is, it's asinine and insults my intelligence as well as anyone that cares about facts.
