  1. Did they have a tiny budget for costumes, and that’s why there’s scant variety?

    1. These are extraordinarily dreary costumes set in an era of brilliant and elaborate fashions among the elite. Why is Elizabeth’s eleventh millionth sister wearing a granny dress?

  2. Considering how often period dramas have an unreasonable, anachronistic variety of costumes for the context (why would, e.g., a Regency-era woman living in genteel impoverishment never have to re-wear the same evening gown, or an actual peasant character have a different outfit for every occasion?), it’s kind of mind-boggling how few costumes this show about royal and aristocratic characters has!

  3. How dare you mock Her Grace Queen Elizabeth’s nice new dress? She clearly won it from than Infanta by right of conquest. (-;

  4. Warwick was negotiating a marriage with a sister in law of the King of France, Bona of Savoy, not a Spanish infanta but the future Isabella the Catholic, of Ferdinand and Isabella fame, was indeed one of Edward’s prospective brides, and decidedly annoyed at being displaced by an English Widow, or at least she claimed to be, probably for diplomatic advantage.

  5. Last episode you missed two of the central characters getting married, as well as great scene at the end between Edward and Elizabeth. This episode you were bored by the downfall of the Duke of Clarence…for how often you complain about period dramas inserting too much cheese ball invention (see you Philipa Fucking Gregory section..) it sort of seems like you don’t really want what you tell your readers that you want…
