    Not Bad, But Still Goofy

    Okay, well, there's one thing that I must say about this series - it's so much fun to watch!! It's not historically accurate, and I have no idea why Mary, Queen of Scots and her ladies are wearing contemporary dresses in a lot of the scenes. And who knew that Prince Francis of France was the epitome of sexy and that he was the original Justin Bieber (pre-2013 Bieber, that is)?- "Don't forget Father, she's not only a queen, but a girl" - absolutely hilarious! Anyway, the acting is really good - the cast deliver ridiculous lines so well (Megan Follows is great!) I have to say that I want to know what happens in each episode, so it's not that bad a show. You just have to go in knowing that it's a tween/teen WB show, but adults can enjoy it too. This show has actually made me very interested in the real Mary, Queen of Scots and the other characters who are based on real people. Fascinating time period in that area of Europe. Recommended.

    Based on watching the first few episodes of season 4 on tv now, I personally thought this was going to be another "story of The Tudors, or Elizabeth I. To my surprise, it is not. It tells the story of Mary Stuart / Mary Queen of Scots. I'm glad though, because her story has never really been told. Its about time! Anyway, the series is entertaining, and I like the way modern music is put to the dance and "other": scenes. As a series and not a documentary, some "liberties" were taken. Despite that, it is worth getting, if you are a fan of that time in history.

    Historical based soap opera

    Fun, but really a soap opera based on history. As an historical "purist", I have to keep reminding myself to just enjoy that this is a HIGHLY dramatized version of history. Slimly fact-based and not at all accurate in terms of the costuming, but if it gets the attention of people who would ordinarily not gravitate to history and encourage them to dig for the deeper truths, then ok. I will admit, that it has sucked me in (just like any soap opera).

    I love this series. It's nice to see work done on a character who usually only gets airtime during movies/shows about her cousin Elizabeth I. They have taken a lot of creative license in regards to costuming and some license with historical events, but it adds more than it takes away from the show. The cast is awesome and the heart of the series is true.

    I started watching this in middle of season 2 when I noticed Megan Follows stared in it. I grew up watching the( Anne of Green Gables series. I had to watch missed episodes online. And have been recording every episode since. I am hooked.

    I have been watching this series for a while as they are quite a few seasons in. I saw this on sale at the store and decided I had to have it for my DVD library. I have enjoyed this series quite a bit so many twists and turns.

    It's taking me awhile to really get into this show. It can be cheesy and juvenile at times and the acting isn't magnificent but it isn't awful. I haven't written it off yet. It may take a few more episodes to pick up.

    Interesting view of historical events with some twists. We can't anticipate the outcome of some situations. I like to watch few episodes at the time, especially without commercials.
