“A life! You know what that is? It’s the shit that happens when you’re waiting for moments that never come.”
Overall I thought The Crown’s first season was good – it’s hard for me to dislike a period drama that takes pains to stay accurate. The clip below was probably my favorite few minutes in the whole season. It’s heavy stuff – and in reality I imagine the concept of a divine responsibility isn’t a new one to a new queen. Something this profound has to be communicated early if not often. Either way, great scene.
