  1. Yeah, but it has gained traction, apparently because of Grace Randolf.
  2. lol... yeah, I think the servants reacted to the behaviour of Thatcher. NEVER anger the hired help. I am not sure if real live Thatcher would have dressed down a royal, because she was still a royalist at the end of the day.
  3. Elizabeth gets respect for her self-discipline above all. And naturally for the fact that along with her parents she stuck out the Blitz. Charles has neither her self-discipline, nor has he ever sacrificed anything in his life.
  4. Frankly, considering how much "negative" scenes they gave Charles this season, they could have shown how level-headed he reacted in this particular situation, Not that I agree with the "Crown needs a disclaimer" crowd, but one thing which would make Charles as a character more interesting would be to show more of him than just his obsession over Camilla. No one is just one thing.
  5. Well, McGuire is imho the worst actor between the three, and I never liked him in the role at all. And while Doc Oc is the best villain in the original trilogy (even though he is playing more a version of the Lizard, just with another gimmick), I think that both the Vulture and Mysterio were more interesting characters which thematically played way better into the journey of the character. And the car scene between Toomes and Peter is the best Spider-Man/Villain interaction we ever got. There, I said it.

    I think the point was mostly to show the parallels between her and Thatcher and underline that they are the same age.
  7. What rehabilitation? People just found more important things to worry about, but hasn't the general mood been "let's skip Charles in favour of William" for years? The topic didn't sell papers anymore, that was all.
  8. May has my favourite arc in the whole show.
  9. ...has Kate any personality outside fitting the needs of her husband?
  10. Not all Marvel Actors are left leaning. Since Marvel doesn't care about Chris Pratt's weird church or the fact that Gwynneth Paltrow sells harmful BS to her customer, I doubt that they would worry too much about one shared tweet as long as it isn't related to paedophilia.
  11. Ballet is great to express yourself. Though I am not sure if I would want to do it in front of so many people. I always loved ballet, I didn't really love going on stage.
  12. The episode has a very fluent timeline and if I remember correctly, he went missing five days ago, but there were reports that he might have been sighted two days ago.
  13. That was the general attitude back then, especially between nobles. Men were allowed to cheat, but not women.
  14. Honestly, I don't care. I know a lot of people like the version of Hawkeye who is deaf and defends tenants, or the one who is more like Earth Mightiest Heroes, who keeps hiding in vents, but all of those takes can still happen with a follow up Hawkeye.
  15. Kate's style is either way pretty backwards. Granted, I never really saw Diana as "style icon" either, but at least she didn't look like she was wearing clothes from at least 50 years ago. I am far from telling anyone how to dress, but Kate's clothing is really aging her...the good thing is: she will look the same age for the next decade or so because of it, until the clothes actually fit her age.
  16. I don't hate Charles and Camilla. I am not invested enough in the royal family to hate everyone. I do hate the notion of privilege though....

    In Germany we have: Conservatives: Black Social democrats AND the Left: Red Liberals: Yellow Greens: Green (obviously) AfD (far right): A very specific light blue (Though "brown" is the colour we associate with Nazis the most). The violets: Violet (that's some Esoteric party and no, they never won a single seat). The Grey Panther: Grey (that's another minor party, in this case for elderly people) The Pirate Party: Orange and Black (that's a minor party which actually managed to earn some seats on local level) Volt: Lilac (That's a centrist pan-European party which has a seat in the EU parliament) Die Partei (The Party): Black, White AND Red (That's a joke party which also has a seat in the EU parliament and actually does politics once a while).
  18. You can watch the first two seasons and then pause. It's basically the first big arc. And yes, I like him in those double roles too, but not as Phillip. I guess because there is some underlying aggression in the way he acts which fits both of his roles in Outlander (for different reasons) but is a little bit too much for Phillip.
  19. Depends on what you consider true strength.
  20. Who knows...the press always got crazy over Diana, the same accident might have happen anyway, but over another story hunting issue.

    The UK originated that Colour scheme - it's not universal, though, in some countries the colour of the conservatives is Black. To list it: Social Democrats and other left leaning parties : Red Environmental Parties : Green Conservatives: Black or Blue Liberals: Yellow Those are the main ones...the US is the only country I know where red is standing for the conservative party, but then this might be related to the switch which happened between Republicans and Democrats.

    I think that is simply the kind of dresses people remember her most with...though I guess she might have picked it deliberately back in the day.
  23. And as I said earlier, Thatcher really spoke that deliberately. That was partly due her originally having a very shrill voice -"me things the lady screams too much" - so she deliberately trained herself to speak lower and more controlled.

    Mmmm….my sister watched that one too. But I think it was a little bit shorter. I might misremember but I think for that wedding they only showed the actual wedding over here and not wall-to-wall coverage more or less the whole day long.
