• Thoughts on Versailles season three, episode ten….

    Episode ten. They very last one of this season and of Versailles. Are you eager to know what will happen? I haven’t seen the episode before, same goes for the last three, so I have no clue what to expect… but I know some details as to what will happen to one character…. and everything behind this sentence will be very…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season three, episode nine….

    Here we go with episode nine, which means Versailles season 3 is almost over… and everything behind this sentence will be very full of spoilers. Last episode, we had Jeanne engaging in criminal acts, the Chevalier having some sexy-time, Philippe being a doting son, Liselotte plotting with Colbert… and the King jumped off a cliff.   His Majesty is under water,…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season three, episode eight….

    Salut and vive le roi. Episode eight. Are you ready for this? Lots of things happened last episode. Sophie and Eléonore are on the way to the Republic of the Seven United Netherlands, after Fabien let them go. The Church, or rather Cardinal Leto, is not happy with Louis and the other way around. The Chevalier engaged in forgery. Bontemps spilled the…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season three, episode six….

    Bonjour. Episode six. Only four to go. I will need vacation after the last episode, because writing the reviews is very exhausting. One usually takes me something between six and nine hours…. and everything behind this sentence will be very full of spoilers. Last Episode, we saw the Queen perish and the now widowed Louis finally found out what is…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season three, episode five….

    Are you ready for the next episode? We are at episode five now, which means we are half way through the last season of Versailles…. and everything behind this sentence will be full of spoilers. Last episode, we saw our King being not so kind to the peasants, while Monsieur attempts to trick Bontemps into believing he dropped the Mask…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season three, episode four….

    Bonjour again. I had a cup of tea and am somewhat ready for the next episode…. and, as usual, everything behind this sentence will contain spoilers. Last episode, we saw Bossuet at the Vatican, which is a bit worried thing could get difficult for Louis soon. Louis has learned about Madame de Maintenon’s past and also that the poor people are…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season three, episode three….

    I hope you have a cup of tea or any other beverage of your choosing ready, for we are about to jump back to 17th century France… and everything behind this sentence will contain spoilers. Last episode, Monsieur teamed up with Fabien to find Mask Man and was totally uncaring that his son and heir was removed from Versailles by…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season three, episode two….

    Here we are again for the next round…. and everything behind this sentence will contain spoilers. In the last episode, we learned that Louis has won the war and he welcomed Emperor Leopold to Versailles. Liselotte is the proud maman of a little boy, for which the Chevalier acts more father than the actual father. Monsieur is now part of…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season two, episode ten….

    We are at the last episode of this new season. Are you excited? Will we get a major cliffhanger again? Will the King be poisoned? So many questions, so lets jump straight back in time to 17th century France and Versailles. Madame de Montespan narrowly escaped Fabien last episode and is having a bit of a wash in her rooms.…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season two, episode nine….

    Episode nine. That means only one more to go and before we dive into this episode I will put a rant warning here. I have seen the episode already and before I did so the first time, I was actually warned about a scene. This scene will get me to rant a bit again later on…. and I feel terrible…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season two, episode eight….

    Our King is on his way back to Versailles and we are at episode eight. I actually felt a little guilty after complaining so much again last episode…. How long does it take to travel from Holland to Versailles on horseback? I can’t quite say. I do have a note somewhere that lists distances and how fast one could travel…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season two, episode seven….

    Episode seven. This means we are drawing close to the end of this season. Last episode finished with a smug William of Orange and a dripping wet Louis XIV. Although in a state of wetness and anger, or perhaps because of it, our King did look quite dashing. Don’t you think? We return to the convent and find Louis and…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season two, episode six….

    Bonjour again. We are half way through season two and left off last episode with our King drawing some lines with his own blood on a plan of his Palace of Dreams. It’s in the walls. Before watching episode six, I was told it would be a bit as if Philippe was King… so I am looking forward to discover…

  • 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…

  • 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.…

  • 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…
