Are we there yet? No, we have one more episode to go and then we can forget we ever watched The White Queen (2013), at least as far as the costume content goes. That’s the thing I think I need to mention right now … This is actually, despite my bitching about it, a really entertaining show. I’m enjoying it far more than any other Philippa Gregory adaptation I’ve seen so far, even if I can quibble with the historical facts here and there. If I were just watching for the entertainment value and the history, these posts would be far different in tone and content. Maybe I’ll do a wrap-up post at some point, after I’ve recovered from the slog through the costume non-content, but not for a while. I need some breathing room, because at this point, I’m literally scraping the bottom of the barrel trying to find SOMETHING interesting to talk about, be it good, bad, or hell, even ugly. But there’s just SO little to work with! Case in point, today’s episode has literally two new costumes. TWO. Out of a cast of dozens, there are only two new outfits to report on.
So let’s get them out of the way before I struggle to come up with more things to talk about in order to flesh this post out.
So. That’s it. But I did notice as I was watching that this episode was particularly heavy on some of our most notorious frock flick tropes, so I figured I’d share them:
Welp, that’s all I got. Discuss!
