|Yeah. I'm THAT good.|
I just said to my husband "HOW much do you love James Frain?!" And hubby - remembering "Franklin Mott" (James' character in True Blood) said "Look how fast I'm texting!" I almost fell off my chair from laughing so hard. (It's True Blood. There's "language" in that link. Be warned.)
|If it ain't bein' shown on STARZ...I ain't doin' it!|
OK back to the show. It hit me when Elizabeth was making the sign of the cross that England is still Catholic. They have only just overthrown Henry VI. We have a little way to go before Henry VIII comes to town. Not that we'll see him in The White Queen...OR played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers. But a girl can dream.
OK another cool this about this show - the score. In spots, it sounds a lot like my Outlander-reading soundtrack, Lifescapes Scottish Moors.
Meanwhile...anyone who knows me, knows I hate spoilers. COMMA HOWEVER...I had to google.
I just had to. And I have now pieced sooooo much together between this show and what I have researched in the past. For some reason, it's not really spoiling when it's "real life". This shit happened, people! And I must say how surprised I am that - so far - things pretty much happened the way STARZ is portraying them to have happened! I'm kindof in shock...and I'm definitely thrilled. (More Outlander hopes, y'all.)
|Exactly where I belong. |
Karma is a bitch.
Another cool thing: a few months ago my British history-loving ass FREAKED OUT when they found the bones of King Richard III under a parking lot (SPOILERS). It just hit me tonight that the same Richard is King Edward's younger brother...who I have DESPISED for years, due to the fact that he _______________ (same spoiler I mentioned above).
Soooo...bottom line...I am now thoroughly entrenched in The White Queen.
And you should be, too.
