News & Interviews for Versailles: Season 1
The intrigue, as we might expect, is probably the most interesting element of Versailles, and the entire attention-seeking souffl looks suitably splendid, as it should on a budget of 24 million.
The performances range from hammy to insipidly limp, and a lot of the dialogue is risible.
This is entertainment in the tradition of The Tudors except that it is well performed...
Fans of series like The Borgias, The Tudors, and other historical political dramas (with an emphasis on drama over history) will find plenty to like.
The men especially, appear lost or out of place, declaiming thick exposition and venomous threats in Brit-accented English, all while wearing poorly tailored frills and laughable long wigs that suggest they're trying to unleash their inner Fabio.
