Done with Season 1. Excellent! The show is well made and manages to retain interest.
My favourite characters:
Françoise-Athénaïs, marquise de Montespan (Anna Brewster) – She has some of the best lines in the show. Not to mention – A delight to look at.
Fabien Marchal (Tygh Runyan) – Doubt anyone else can play this character with the same conviction and restraint. Most impressive.
Philippe I, Duke of Orléans (Alexander Vlahos) – Witty. Rather refreshing.
The two characters that I did have a problem with:
Sophie (Maddison Jaizani) – Confused stupid cunt. Forever sad. Annoying.
Béatrice Hiéronyme de Lorraine (Amira Casar) – In the beginning, she is just annoying. Later though, she plays the part of the conspiring bitch rather effectively. I just don’t like the way she looks in the show. I find her… untidy.
