News & Interviews for The Crown: Season 1
As a rebellious American, I think what's missing here is the voice of the British people. Without them, "The Crown" gives us little sense how the marriages and mishaps of a mostly ceremonial monarchy could still inspire a great nation.
Netflix's lavish production ticks all the boxes of a royal awards contender: impeccable craftsmanship, sterling performances and a historical story. But all that polish may have dulled its edge.
It's very moving and will make you grateful to live in 2016. But it is a little gross.
The Crown is the TV equivalent of a long drive through the English countryside. The scenery keeps changing, but remains the same. You nod off, then wake up - to see more of the same.
Should you watch it: Indubitably. Creator Peter Morgan, who wrote The Queen... breathes life into this alien, ossified world - and we watch that world suck the life out of this young woman.
A warts-and-all portrayal, but the royals are unlikely to mind. There is a sensitivity here which humanises them in a sympathetic if not reverent manner, making them look just like commoners with titles and wealth: vulnerable and flawed.
The Crown demonstrates this predominance of the objective, of class forces, of historical law. ... The wretched people in this series are entirely the playthings of forces beyond their control.
Netflix's royals drama is a good TV show, but what I'm really here for is the fountain pens.
Addictive and tantalizing, Season 4 is the best season yet.
Anglophiles will have no trouble bingeing the season, but I admit I was left feeling somewhat unsatiated in the end.
Audience Reviews for The Crown: Season 1
2d agoGreat series , actors were actually pretty impressive .
Apr 23, 2021Excellent presentation and engaging story. The death of Prince Philip caused me to finally check this show out and I can now see why so many love it so. The acting is top form and I now have a renewed interest in everything English. 9/10
Apr 04, 2021I can recognize a good casting and a high quality plot. It was still boring though. Maybe it's the royal family who the story is based about. They're just not exiting.
Mar 07, 2021For those who eat this stuff up with a spoon, 'The Crown' is everything we could have wanted. Addictive and tantalizing. Powerful performances and lavish cinematography make The Crown a top-notch production worthy of its grand subject. Season 1 Beginning with her 1947 wedding, this epic drama charts the life of Queen Elizabeth II, who becomes leader of the world's most famous monarchy at the tender age of 25 -- commencing a reign that will last more than six decades. The first season of 'The Crown' features brilliant performances from Claire Foy,(Claire won a Golden Globe for her role as Queen Elizabeth II ) John Lithgow and the rest of the cast, and is an immersive experience into the fascinating world of English royalty. Should you watch it: Indubitably yes !10/10
Mar 07, 2021Overwhelmed. I do not like the subject and never watched it earlier than this, but these people made it interesting just as Churchill and The King's Speech made similar subjects interesting, not to mention the Benjamin Black novel about the sisters during WW II. Now I have 3 seasons to go before I can change the channel.
Mar 03, 2021Absolutely amazing! Immaculate acting, BEAUTIFUL cast (especially Claire Foy) and the plot line is so interesting and fascinating to watch.
Feb 22, 2021Incredibly well written. Beautifully shot. Amazing performances. SEE IT ! And this is coming from someone that HATES Royalty.
Jan 21, 2021The first season and since it's the second season was like the first bite of a well cooked, well seasoned steak. Your senses delight and you can't wait for the next bite. Unfortunately the last bites of that same steak feel more like filler than delightful indulgence. That's the way I felt as we watched seasons 2-4.
Jan 16, 2021The first season of 'The Crown' features brilliant performances from Claire Foy, John Lithgow and the rest of the cast, and is an immersive experience into the fascinating world of English royalty.
Jan 03, 2021Fantastic! A well written show following the crown during the early ruling of Queen Elizabeth the 2nd and the lives of the royal family. Dealing with very interesting stories and fantastic acting, this first season is my personal favorite of the series.
