'VERSAILLES' EPIC TV SERIES
ENGLISH LANGUAGE TRAILER
Meanwhile over in France, Canal + has released the first English language trailer for the second season of their smash hit historical series VERSAILLES charting the life of the famous Sun King which starts airing in France March 27th and will again be broadcast later this year for US audience by Ovation, after the first season became their best watched programme ever. BBC Two will again air the English language series over in Great Britain. The first season was sold in 135 countries around the world.
THE SUN KING  
Our beloved George Blagden will put on the lace, silk and royal frills as the Sun King again! The biggest budgeted French series ever has been greenlit for second season even before the airing of the opening one in Winter 2015! Season two looks at the dark underbelly of power as Louis sees the dream of his grand palace crumbling before his eyes. With phase one complete, most of France’s eminent lords and ladies now live under the Sun King’s roof. Drugs, gambling and alcohol are rampant, as nobles begin to poison each other in order to get closer to him. Blinded by passion for his mistress, Louis refuses to listen to the advice of the church and his closest advisors and leaves for war against arch enemy William of Orange, but he must discover the path back to light and redemption to save his vision of Versailles. Alexander Vlahos will return in the role of his royal brother Monsieur Philippe Duke of Orleans.

    1. him only, the rest of the cast has been dreadfully boring so far, as if they're trying to ruin any excitement possible. Even the setting is boring. I will give it a try, though, but Sonequa has been annoyingly overacting in TWD already don't know why they would give her a lead role. Just because she's a female and black and they wanted diversity?

  2. Versailles I am hoping to catch up on this summer. Jason cancelled my Tivo subscription since we bought one of those Amazon Firestick doo dads, so I'll have to see if it's on Netflix or Amazon.

    1. Do whats? I think it is on Netflix. The first season wasn't bad, give it a few episodes before it catches on.

    2. Something you plug into the tv and you are supposed to get a bunch of television shows with it. I haven't played with it much, but it's only $40 so no big loss if it doesn't have many great shows to stream.

    3. our cable is for times cheaper monthly, but admittedly we do get mostly crap

    4. The $40 was a flat fee. We don't pay anymore for streaming monthly. So, we cancelled the cable and tivo and save over $100 a month now. I do still pay $10 a month for Netflix though.

    5. $100 a month is a huge sum, half of what most pensioners and workers earn here a month :(

    6. That's insane. Just about as insane as what our cable company charges for television. Most people I know are cutting out the cable and opting for cheaper streaming options like Netflix and Amazon. I finally got my mom on board. I am sick of these cable companies charging sky high prices for a little entertainment.

  3. Versailles is a great series, Jason Isaacs is a great actor, he should have been the last James Bond.
