TV Series Review ~ Versailles S1-E5+E6

Versailles is a British-Franco-Canadian television series set during the construction of Versailles Palace during the reign of Louis XIV.

I'm officially obsessed with this show. I love EVERYTHING about this. Yes the "accents" isn't correct, they could've put a French accent on so it feels slightly realistic.

The costumes and the settings are breathtaking. I can't describe them in words on how everything looks and feels.

I talked about George Blagden in the last review, but now I want to talk about Alexander Vlahos who plays George Blagden's characters brother, Philippe I, Duke of Orleans. 
Outstanding. He knows how to capture the troubled character of Philippe. Troubled is a mild word for what he is actually, especially after the war.

I cannot wait for the next episodes to come out, of course episode six left on a cliff hanger....I NEED MORE!

My star rating is:
