I really enjoyed this season. It was just chock full of historical detail I was not aware of before watching this. I even looked some of the stuff up and found it to be very accurate. I was amazed at how the brother who abdicated tried to undermine the Royal family and the proven connections with Hitler and the Nazi’s (I knew he was considered a Nazi sympathizer but never knew it was this bad). I also had no clue about Prince Phillip’s family and what a horrible childhood he had, nor did I realize that Charles attended the same school as Philip had (and how unhappy he was!). Margaret continues to fascinate, as do all the characters. Bravo to the cast and crew for another great season!

I generally dislike Bio-pics. But this one has me absolutely enchanted and captivated. It still sticks in my craw that Claire Foy received a much lower salary than Matt Smith. She is outstanding in this.

GREAT 2nd Season of terrific The Crown TV series. Kept me enthralled through all the episodes - great continuation from Season 1. Hope they produce a third season plus.

The series is thoroughly researched, so the naughty behavior by some members of the monarchy apparently should not surprise us. Some of it is pretty unusual. The Kennedys sure don't come out looking good. The casting is amazing. The actor protraying young Prince Charles looks like a dead ringer.

They say the Queen doesn't watch but some of her grandchildren do and tell her about it. No denials from the Palace, but holy cats! Claire Foy amazing.

Fascinating look at the Royal family in the context of current events and conventions of the time. I liked every episode.

Season Two of "The Crown" carries on the high standard that was set by Season One, telling the story of Queen Elizabeth II and those who surround her with emphasis on key historical and personal events that present the best opportunities for high drama. Well-cast and well-acted, with gorgeous sets and scenery, they spin a riveting yarn. As with Season One my only real quibble is that the dialogue and behavior often seems way too modern for the era being represented. Case in point: in the Kennedy episode, the private conversations shown between Her Majesty and Jackie Kennedy seemed uncharacteristically revealing and forthright for the era and what is known about the personalities of the women involved. But I love this series and look forward to what more is to come. Great fun for anyone who loves British history.

Details I've never read - not surprising, since I care little for the royals - I do like the historical aspect. Brilliant acting by most; sick of Matt S & the eye business; Matthew Goode looked awful - was he supposed to look so bad? If this is truly historically factual, one can almost feel sorry for P.Charles. Rather liked the manner JFK was portrayed, the great privileged, powerful few. Interesting how nothing was said about the traitorous behavior or Joseph P.K. the once Ambassador to Britain. Ready for the long wait to start the next series with a new cast. Alex Jennings is perfect as the Duke of Windsor.
