  3. Sounds like a olden day soap opera. So much drama, but what family doesn't have it? Glad to know that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

    1. it is always fun watching a new queen fighting the old one :) not that Lady Bouford was ever a queen, only a fanatical wannabe :) It is every husband's nightmare for sure.

  5. We can't actually travel through time yet, but at least we've got shows like this as the next best thing. I hope they report accurate history and not a Hollywood version. Do you think a history student could use this as a reference to write a paper on the subject?

    1. Probably not, although I'm sure many will try :) But they're certainly good in showing students the settings and costumes of that period

  6. The "icy mom" is always an interesting character. I'm with Lee (the other Lee) in hoping for an accurate history and not a Hollywood creation.
