Critic Reviews for Versailles Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

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.

Only the end invites us to continue to discover the immediate future of events that, if treated well, can lead to a great television story. We will have to wait. [Full Review in Spanish]

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.

What is more interesting is how Versailles chooses to interpret the major relationships and rumors that defined the early years of Louis' reign.

I'm enjoying Versailles. It is a trashy, extravagant romp that takes liberties with the actuality. It is also, undeniably, quite a lot of fun.

It's demented.

Eleven full minutes into Versailles, and I was cheerfully bonding with the Franco-Canadian mood of it all.
