    VERSAILLES tonight LOVES

    It had better be HIGH CAMP on a LUDICROUS SCALE or I am going to be SORELY DISAPPOINTED

    It was a bit Footballers Wives meets historical drama. The finale with the fake baby was amazing!

    It was a bit on the CURIOUS SIDE with a decidedly WONKY SCRIPT (YOU LOOK PENSIVE BABS) but I shall PERSEVERE

    That baby really was SOMETHING.

    I quite enjoyed it, hopefully the ridiculousness will be embraced further as the series goes on (more shameless double entendres about being split in half by a well-timed thrust wouldn't go amiss). I did think that they could do with livening Louis himself up a bit - he was somewhat on the dry side.

    Dr Lucy and Lady Castor's doco was reliably entertaining but the little bit with the excitable Professor Kate and Mr Horrible Histories seemed very odd indeed.

    I loved the porn-dialogue level of writing exhibited in that military strategy scene. I can tell this show is going to be amazing.

    Curious as to why they cast actual french people in some of the roles but had the non-french accents ham up their british accents.

    This is slightly disappointing but still quite engagingly silly

    John Crace's episode recaps in the Grauniad however are REALLY RATHER SPLENDID

    Oh I've been enjoying it. It's fabulously trashy and I don't think it meant to be.

    Not that the daughter seemed to mind. She grew pretty savvy in the space of an afternoon.

    The Guardian reviewer hates the show but his Franglais reviews are a good GCSE French refresher.

    Oh it's FAR FROM a reviewers fave that's obvious, it's more like a historical Footballers Wives for me and ALL the better for it!

    BACK :disco: (and the strange little recap show persists too)

    More of Philippe and his animated social life please.

    I was most disappointed that the 'five-in-a-bed gay orgy scene' promised to me by the Mail Online consisted of ONE SHOT where four of the five gentlemen were FAST ASLEEP

    VERSAILLES is back tonight to GENERAL DISINTEREST and without INSIDE VERSAILLES with TEETHY AND BEARDY I don't know whether it's worth it. I don't think I even watched all of the last season although that was partly due to an EQUALLY BAFFLING FAMILY DRAMA of my OWN

    I'm persevering with this: last night's episode with the SCANDALOUS PORTRAITS of MADAME DE MAINTENON TITS OUT was quite AMUSING

    Yes I liked that, it was more of the peak ridiculousness from earlier episodes. I am not appreciating serious Philippe at all however.
