I missed seeing this series on Netflix, I have watched all four seasons, so my review is for the series. This show is outstanding. From the productions infinite detail, and historical accuracy of sets, costumes, the actors are ALL superb. Words cannot express how profoundly perfect this series is. Capturing the people and imagined moments, both public and private, within the Royal household . Well done
For Edward VIII, love before duty - he abdicating in 1936. Now thrust into the spotlight, a branch of the family never wishing to be there. Gradually the public warmed towards stuttering, homeloving George VI - he trying so hard to do what was right. Far earlier than expected, it became the turn of Elizabeth - she movingly having pledged her life to serving her people, duty before all.
Tellingly portrayed here is a monarch (main passions family and horses) straitjacketed by protocol - the Establishment of old and ailing decreeing what she can and cannot do. (At one point she chides her mother for an education which has been an irrelevance, she in so many ways unprepared for what is now expected.) Love of her life is Philip (their marriage opposed by the powers that be). He is one increasingly disenchanted by what he calls "the circus", enforced restrictions rendering him little more than a royal appendage. (Matt Smith declares he initially was no fan of the Duke but came increasingly to admire the man on discovering what he had to endure.)
Much food for thought here, also much to admire. Claire Foy impresses as Elizabeth - ever mindful of what is required of her, forthright when the occasion demands. John Lithgow makes a convincing Churchill, so doggedly clinging on to power. Alex Jennings is great, completing here a royal hat trick (Charles in "The Queen", Albert's real father in "Victoria", now the Duke of Windsor - legendary charm so often replaced by vitriol at how treated since he quit the throne).
Incidental pleasures abound - the Queen Mother in Scotland, Churchill's scenes with artist Sutherland. For those alive at the time memories will be evoked by Episode 4, a dramatic reminder of when days of smog caused so many deaths.
Ten hour long episodes. Bonuses disappointingly limited to a photo gallery.
"The Crown" well deserves the acclaim given - conflict between love and duty throughout a concern, it now Margaret's turn to choose.
Many may emerge with greater respect for those who have sacrificed so much. Understanding grows for those due to inherit, major adjustments needed to render the Monarchy more relevant.
Interesting 🧐 this is coming from not so much a fan of the monarchy. Like a young girl that knows practically nothing about the real world is put in charge of certain parts of a country that claims to be a democracy of some sort????? Thanks
DRAMATIC PORTRAYAL OF TODAY’S BRITISH QUEEN Elizabeth II, the focus of this series. Viewers get a look back at history in the making, inside and outside the palace. It is astonishingly well-done, with enough glitter to represent the monarchy, and enough conflict to show the always volatile UK politics. Claire Foy plays the queen, perhaps better than the queen herself. There are liters and meters of outstanding spot-on top acting portrayals of historical figures. Every episode welcomes new characters but with faces previously seen on top British TV series. Way too many super roles played to try to begin mentioning them. One needs not be well informed on British political and monarchy history, but sometimes it helps. It is a show that even Americans can enjoy, a country filled with the bewildered when it comes to understanding Brit lifestyle and parliamentary procedures. Sit back and watch the portrayal in beautiful cinematography of the Queen that rules yet over the British Empire, what remains of it. The only downside is the fact that such a magnificent series, produced by Netflix, failed miserably by providing as bonus only still photos plus one advertisement to buy something else. Regardless, the DVD is worth a tiny piece of the Crown Jewels, because it’s more entertainment than documentary.

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh have just celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary as I write. They must be the best known couple in the world and have become permanent fixtures in many of our imaginations. After 70 years of marriage and 65 years on the throne it might seem that there is little more to know about them. The Crown, a dramatized and highly dramatic depiction of Elizabeth and Philip's early married life is a speculative look into their relationship, because neither has ever answered questions about their private lives. Even so, The Crown is plausible and intriguing.
There are 10 episodes in the first season of The Crown, beginning just before the royal marriage in 1947 and lasting until 1955. We see the young Princess Elizabeth and her handsome naval officer husband balancing royal and military duties and starting a family, then suddenly being required to give up any semblance of a private life when King George VI died in 1952. Elizabeth II became Queen at a difficult period for Great Britain. The Empire was fragmenting, the economy stagnating, and world leadership seemed to be slipping away. We see the young Queen finding her footing and learning how to deal with her ministers, especially her first Prime Minister Winston Churchill. At the same time her husband was searching for a role of his own and chafing at the necessity of playing second fiddle to his wife. Any marriage would be stressed by these complications, and the depictions of conflict between the Queen and her husband are plausible. Also looking for new places in the world were the widowed Queen Mother and her younger daughter Princess Margaret. The series does an adroit job depicting those struggles, particularly the ones faced by Margaret, whose wish to marry a divorced man put her and her elder sister at odds. By the last episode we have seen some of these conflicts resolved, but many more await resolution in future seasons.
Season One of The Crown is a magnificent production which promises much and amply delivers. I await future seasons with eager anticipation.
Expensive looking series, great costumes and sets, good acting IMO and not a sign that I can see of this 'woke'/revisionist history nonsense that is plaguing the media nowadays. Now I ought to say that it is a drama, not a documentary. Because of this the screenwriters have to work around the basic known facts but fill in the details as they see fit. This means that clearly a great deal of the dialogue is an interpretation of what happened. I see nothing wrong with this and can't imagine that there's a practical alternative anyway.
There are a good variety of sub-plots - historical characters and events - and the plot is interspersed with flasbacks to earlier times and events - all to put things into context for the viewer.
It's all plausible though, to the average viewer with a reasonable knowledge of history and that's the main thing. I also ought to say the casting people have done quite well to make the actors/actresses look like the person they are playing - well done. I liked it well enough to go out and buy Season II !
“The Crown”, season one was a very satisfying, enjoyable, and eye-opening view of the inner workings of the British Royal Family. We Americans have a fascination with the British Monarchy and this series very successfully treated us to an inside view of their private and official lives, leaving very few stones unturned, even to the point of shocking and titillating us with this very personal “inside” view. We cannot, of course, know how much of the conversations and behavior of these historical figures as depicted in this television portrayal is true, nor to what extent it has been speculated and extrapolated from available information, but the simple fact of being privy to it all via “The Crown” is a delicious treat. The portrayals of Queen Elizabeth, Prince Phillip, Sir Winston Churchill, and all the rest are spot on, and it has been a joy to be such intimate observers of the strengths and dignity, as well as the weaknesses and flaws of these historical figures. Kudos to all responsible for this marvelous depiction.
My chief disappointment in this series is that a full and untouched view of the superb luxury of Buckingham Palace et al was not depicted well, possibly because they were not given permission to film in certain areas. The scenes in royal living areas seemed to be intentionally diminished somehow, whereas an elaborate and expansive view would have enhanced the story line immeasurably. Despite that, this series is well deserving of five stars.
Wow, what a wonderful insight as well as gripping story. I was engaged, charmed, sympathetic and felt invited into the 'firm' almost right away.
From the first episode, it is a detailed, well managed, intimate view of the crown (George VI as well). It looks at many things around it and how it all works together. It was a revelation, even to someone who thought he'd a fair to middling knowledge already (though not an insider). It has public landmarks to hang its narrative from. It addresses all the challenges and crises you may already know about and a few domestic rough patches, that you almost certainly don't.
If I had two criticisms: - There is missing the detail of some big characters, deeply human and strong genuine friendships, between some of the secondary characters. - And palace anecdotes that are perhaps classic but merely fun seem not to have had much space left to them.
Nothing is simple, so it takes great skill to show things without over-simplifying them and 'The Crown' manages it VERY well. So my criticism is more a cost of the more important focus the director has chosen, than anything that could have been done better. .
