The Crown season two is a continuation of the story of Elizabeth II and Philip. So far its a lot grittier and hard-nosed as life gets more complicated for these two. In the beginning of the series she tends to affairs at home while he is on tour to getting to see the world and representing England to open the Olympics in Australia. There are other situations around the world that is impacting life in the United Kingdom.

I am enjoying this very much for the quality of acting by Claire Foy and Matt Smith. One sad thing I learned recently is that Foy was paid less thanSmith by Netflix and she is the lead in this series. Very troubling.

I am late to the party on this one but “The Crown” is royally awesome. Claire Foy plays Queen Elizabeth II to perfection and Doctor Who’s Matt Smith plays Prince Philip masterfully. John Lithgow portrays Winston Churchill in such a prime way. So far I am mid-way through and every moment is terrific. I highly recommend this on Netflix.

This show has captured the imagination of many. As a child of the 1980’s it takes me back to the era I came of age in. This week we have been watching it and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Can’t wait til season two.
