With Season 2, the flower is still golden, but the bloom has fallen off. The great saga of the end of Sir Winston has been replaced with kitchen-sink boredom about historical nonentities like Anthony Eden and Harold MacMillan.

Superbly written, the season 2 of 'The Crown' is regarding technical, cast and script, the most ambitious thing Netflix has in its portfolio. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's hard not to see The Crown as a missed opportunity.
February 1, 2019
Helping cement how the palace wishes to be seen. This is a show so conservatively royalist in its myth-making, even Her Majesty is said to enjoy it.
January 16, 2019
As with the first series, The Crown's cinematography deserves a big, royal fanfare.
January 6, 2019
This 10-episode second season of The Crown is on one level a thoroughly entertaining exalted workplace drama where the setting is palaces, country homes and the changing monarchy of a declining Britain.

Slow, at times. But the way The Crown... keeps the audience guessing about marriages we already know the ending to is anything but boring.
October 10, 2018
Foy's showcase is putting on a masterclass in acting. I already miss her interpretation of the role she was born to play.

Lavishly presented and deftly written, save for the odd bum note and over-eager steer, the new series finds Morgan in confident form.

[Season 2] full of frustration and undeniable brilliance at the same time.

The look of awe on Philip's face as Liz pushes out that baby is really fun, I was pleased.

It is a shame The Crown Season 2 spends so much time on the terrible choices and behavior of its male characters, at the expense of following Elizabeth's growth in her role as Queen.

This is the history of the empire that it was. And, as we know, history will not have a happy ending. [Full review in Spanish]

In one of the best scenes of the series, Elizabeth gives her uncle an extraordinary dressing down, and it's truly her finest hour in the first two seasons of The Crown.

Foy's laser-focused performance - a master class of what an actor can do with stillness - is remarkable.

While ardent monarchists might bristle at the way this is going, for the rest of us it's getting better and better.
December 22, 2017
Beneath the creamy overlay of gowns, crystal chandeliers, palaces, uniformed flunkies and a sumptuous (albeit CGI-enhanced) Royal Yacht, a steely pulse of realpolitik fuels The Crown...
December 19, 2017
Season Two of The Crown continues to romanticize the British royal family, but the romance comes from how they're normal, not divine.
December 19, 2017
As with season one, The Crown's follow-up season is just as seductively glamorous and sumptuously beautiful, from the pitch-perfect script, the quality production and mostly the superb all-around cast performances.

Netflix's zillion-dollar epic series is back, and more binge-watchable than ever.
