I’ve just watched episode one–I thought it was smashing. I love the Queen’s boredom, Kate’s chat with Lady Danbury, Penelope’s desire for Lady Whistledown to do more, Benedict’s humor. The tone is less frivolous than season one which works for me. And I’ve adjusted to the changes the show is making–the Featherington heir, the Sharmas’ background and economic peril. And I don’t miss Simon–yes, he was hot as sin but this is a new season and he’d just be a distraction.
How about you? Did you watch it? And if you’re going to offer a spoiler for later episodes just tag it as such!
