Versailles S3, Ep2 – The one with Sophie’s return

When we left our intrepid characters, Philippe had stupidly and against all sense, charged off on his own, in the night, without guards (yeah, this would never happen) to the Bastille to find out who this mysterious Duc de Sullun is. And promptly got hit on the nopper. Louis meanwhile, Read More…

To everyone who messaged, posted and DMd me regarding my Versailles reviews, THANK YOU! And also, SORRY! I suddenly got some urgent work dumped on my plate, so had to attend to that, plus I will be doing some study in the next few months AND also, in the chaos, Read More…

Versailles S3, Ep1 – The One With The Iron Mask Set Up

So, here we are, mes amis. The final season of Versailles. I had much antipathy coming into my reviews, because I have heard things that frankly, had me in a bad mood before I even began. And so, a warning. There is MUCH I dislike about this season, and so, Read More…

The one with Versailles’ Season 2 sexy bits

If you can count on anything, it’s Danish cheese to be excellent, Aussies to be obnoxiously “AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE!” at sporting events and the British tabloids to get all outraged and ‘OMG how very DARE THEY!” when it comes to nudity on television. And Lordy, do they LOOOOOVE getting all Read More…

Versailles season 2, episode 10 – deaths, downfalls and departures

So here we are. The finale of Season 2. I hope you’re sitting down because there is A LOT to unpack in this ep. So let us get right to it without further ado. We begin with Montespan in her rooms, in tears, topless and furiously scrubbing herself from a Read More…

Versailles S2, Ep9 – The one with the sacrificing

Bonjour, amis! Before we start on this recap, there’s a few things I have to draw your attention to. It appears to me (correct me if I’m wrong) that Season 2 plays out over a few months. I mean, I don’t see any winter scenes/change of season, any person looking Read More…

Versailles S2, Ep8 – the one with the royal snub

EPISODE 8 Huzzah! We are on our way back to Versailles! Louis is gonna kick some ass now! The salons will be reopened, the wine will flow, the queen will have to relinquish her little despot ways and things will be joyous again. Right? ….right….? Well, we open with a Read More…

Versailles Series 2, Episode 7 – the one with Louis in a nunnery

I must remember, it is 1674. I have absolutely NO CLUE why I thought it was 1670… maybe one of the cast members in an interview? No Idea. But four years later on from Henriette’s death puts us firmly in 1674. We left Louis and William of Orange together in Read More…

Versailles Series 2, Episode 6 – the one with the orgy

So, where are we? Still in 1670? I am assuming so, but since the Franco Dutch war didn’t happen until 1672 I could totally be mistaken. Anyway, the ep opens with Louis staring down a telescope – apparently invented by the Dutch – at the enemy lines, who are standing a Read More…

Versailles Season 2, Episode 5 – the one with the dead priest

Before we start, let us recap where we are in actual historical events, which are very much different to the show and quite an interesting comparison.  Assuming we are mid-to late 1670, these are the facts: Montespan is 30 years old (pushing it a bit by 17th century standards), has Read More…
