Did no one else notice that the actors don't even try to pretend that the decaying body right in front of them would STINK?!?! 🤦🏻♀️ I love historical fiction and have pressed on through all the "teen" angst and lust, the enormous historical inaccuracies in the name of - granted - entertaining fun and aesthetically appealing artistic liberties, and even given plenty suspension of disbelief to the awkward background/non-speaking acting and "the darkness" plots, but episode 8 in season 3, "Our Undoing," really GOOFED and demanded a review when apparently no one on set, especially the director, insisted the obvious be portrayed. "Hey, this body would probably stink." 🤔 Maybe people were more immune or tolerant of foul odors like decay, but at least Megan Follows covered her nose
at possible moments in episode 11 of season 3, "Succession," when bodies were discovered under the castle. Craig Parker did do as well and plays his role perfectly. Torrance Coombs does well managing the plot lines given him. There could be much more "educational" information tied into scenes such as how the clothing is worn, manners and dances befitting social classes, and the names and
types of weapons and devices used in that period. It is sad that poor Elizabeth has such tiny accommodations compared to French court! Rachel Skarsten does well. I wonder if they'll address her bout with smallpox. Megan Follows, however, is my favorite actor and character in this series; the lady can act! #meganfollows P.S. Brides wearing white wasn't in fashion until the Victorian Age.
