• 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…
