• Thoughts on Versailles season two, episode five….

    Episode five, this means we are half way through the season. Last season things really started to kick off then. I’m thrilled to discover how this new season continues, but before we travel back in time to 17th century France allow me to say something regarding the previous episode. It did get a little ranty… or rather I got a…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season two, episode four….

    Bonjour. Comment allez-vous? Did something happen last episode? Something dramatic? Like someone getting stabbed? Ah, oui. Fabien got a knife in his chest and we start with him pulling said knife out. He yells for the guards and collapses. It appears the guards found him and he is brought to Claudine. He will live, for it appears his heart might…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season two, episode three….

    The last episode finished with the screams of Madame de Montespan and the dramatic/mysterious blowing out of candles as a certain Madame Agathe turned her cards. Now we see Louis in his Apollo costume, the one he originally wore during the Ballet Royal de la Nuit. It was first performed in 1653 and took a whole thirteen hours. Louis XIV…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season two, episode two….

    Here we are again. Back in Versailles with episode two. The last episode finished with a solar eclipse and a beheading, now we start in with a yawning Louis XIV walking through a salon. Our King seems unable to sleep and is nearly hit by a falling chandelier. Bossuet thinks it’s a bit of a sign. The historical Bossuet was quite…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season two, episode one….

    March 27 was the day we had all waited for. The day we finally got some new Versailles. The excitement was great. The feelings aflutter. What will this new season bring? Like pretty much everyone else, I followed what happened between season one and season two on various social media platforms. I eagerly jumped at any new footage from the…

  • Versailles Season Two: La première….

    Yesterday, March 27, the day had finally arrived. Versailles season two started. Did I watch it? Oh, oui. Canal + spoiled us with two new episodes yesterday, but do not worry… I shan’t spoil you too much here. Firstly because my French is not good enough and secondly because I plan on doing the proper reviews when I get the dvd.…

  • Versailles Season Two…. what can we expect to see?

    It is still quite a while until we will finally see Season Two of Versailles on the screens, but there are some hints already about what we might see. Until now, there are no set airing dates yet. We know from Canal+ that the show will air March 27  in France and Ovation confirmed it for fall 2017 for the…

  • Versailles Season One, What Happened And What Not….

    If you watched Versailles, you probably did ask yourself what of all the things shown on the show actually happened and what not. Is it more fact of fiction? It is both. Most of the things we see on the show have their roots in historical events or gossip of the time, but not everything happened as it was shown……

  • The Chevalier vs Chevalier.

    It’s been almost a year now since Versailles first aired in France and since then it aired in several other countries worldwide, currently in America. During this year, I have met quite a lot of people who had one particular issue with one of the characters. That issue can be partly blamed on the show itself, for it is not explained…

  • Much Ado About Versailles. A UK Media Rant.

    It is Thursday, June 9, the 315th anniversary of Philippe death and one day after the second Episode of Versailles aired in the UK. You probably all read of the horrendous critics Episode One received, they were rather hard to ignore, and you most likely read the fuss that was made before Episode One even aired. It ranked from utter crap…

  • “Versailles sounds and looks very silly.” Does it?

    It’s been a while now since Versailles has aired in France and I did my last bit of ado on it. Since then the show has aired in several other countries as well, Canada and Belgium, for example, my own native country Germany can watch it on pay-tv right now and it will most likely be view able on free-tv…
