Spoiler: Promo & Episode Description


Hero of the battlefield, Philippe returns from the front transformed. The French soldiers admire the Duke of Orleans, all wreathed in glory. This recognition begins to overshadow Louis. The roads are still not safe just outside Versailles and convoys of attacks are increasing. To celebrate the peace treaty he just signed with the Spanish, the King decides to invite the biggest noble families in Versailles for great entertainment. He invites the Duke of Cassel. Source

10/9c - OVATION



Spoiler: Promo & Episode Description


A protest halts construction at the palace but Louis refuses to let Philippe help and matters escalate, allowing plotters to pose a genuine threat to the young king's rule.

Things get physical as infidelity and treason take their toll in the decadent drama. Source

Re: Versailles - Ovation Saturday

episode 1---

I rather liked it. Sometimes though it seemed too modern in its presentation. Plus it's tough to develop any sympathy for aristocratic tyrants. Even for the Spanish queen who has made a tremendous error. I wonder if the event was historically accurate. Meanwhile the doctor's daughter interested me the most. I hope she plays a greater role. Louis seems dweebish at times. While his brother is just a bit too petulant. No. I like her best. And maybe the older woman who helps with the books and the laundry. If I have her role right.

I was at Versailles years and years ago. It's lovely certainly. But I agree. Paris is better.

Re: Versailles - Ovation Saturday

If there aren't people urinating and defecating in corners of Versailles, then I'm sorry but it's not historically accurate.
