The Crown
« on: November 25, 2016, 10:56:36 pm »
Pretty good Netflix docudrama about the time from before abdication of Elizabeth's uncle  to time when Churchill finally stepped down.  John Lithgow did a good job as Churchill.  I lost some respect for Churchill in this, but he was a major player in the lateb19th century through the mid 20th century, and his leadership in WWII  is ovwhelming, but not featured in this series.  Focus is on Elizabeth and Phillip.  Worth watching.

Don't forget it's mostly fiction, made for gullible people. Dallas set in the UK :wink:

Derek, I sent you a PM.
For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Sorry to hear that, Ben :sad:

I was referring to the TV series 'Dallas' an everyday story of oil folk. :wink:
