60 minutes

“The Crown” is based on the play “The Audience” from scribe Peter Morgan (“The Queen,” “Frost/Nixon”), director Stephen Daldry (“Billy Elliot,” “The Hours”) and producer Andy Harries (“The Queen”). “The Crown” tells the story of two of the most famous addresses in the world — Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street — and the intrigues, love lives and machinations behind the events that shaped the second half of the 20th century.

Marvelous! I absolutely loved this show, watched almost all of it in a single sitting and am starving for more! Effortless to follow all the political, family, and scandalous drama that is all perfectly balanced with each other. Most dramas fall into the pit of overdoing the drama and becoming unrealistically outrageous, creating a disconnect and a ''soap opera'' feel. The Crown maintains an intense dramatic level without ever crossing that boundary, making the show truly close to the heart, because it still feels realistic.
For anyone who is not particularly fond of overly historic or political dramas, do not shy away from this show! They truly do a wonderful job making it so the viewer doesn't get bogged down by too much of it, yet enough to keep your mind interested!
