    I've never watched this show and have no interest in it, but Olivia Colman is a national treasure and everything she does is great.

    The Crown is really well made. Not seen Victoria, but reviews have been mixed at best. Kinda wish they'd (and by they I mean HBO/SHO/AMC/Netflix/anyone other than CW or Freeform) make an Elizabeth I series. Agree on Versailles. Barely made it thru the pilot. Trailer for Ekaterina was enough for moi. Only seen pilot of Last Kingdom & trailers for Vikings.

    * I consider the acting and ‘production values’ in The Crown ( https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4786824/?ref_=nv_sr_7 ) are better than in Victoria ( https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5137338/?ref_=nv_sr_1 ), but Victoria is a much better series simply given how much more consequential Queen Victoria is to world history than Elizabeth II is.

    Ekaterina ( https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4231140/?ref_=nv_sr_1 ) has arguably the best production values of any of these series, but Season 2 isn’t as good as Season 1.

    Versailles ( https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3830558/?ref_=nv_sr_3 ) is somehow the worst series in terms of acting, writing, and storytelling.

    I’ve only seen Medici: Masters of Florence , as Season 2 wasn’t on NetFlix yet. It’s also great, albeit it strays a little from history.


    * Vikings and The Last Kingdom seem to get a lot of attention, but the above series are overall better. I would have much preferred Vikings stayed with Rollo given he’s a very significant historical figure. The Last Kingdom focused on a non-historical character.



    The Crown and Medici are on Netflix. The first 2 seasons of Versailles are on NetFlix. Victoria and Ekaterina are on Amazon Prime.
