OK, still not stitching . . .decided to watch "Reign" which is supposed to be about Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots and her life in France.
Simply from the commercials, I knew that any resemblance to historical record was going to be superficial at best, since Mary went to the French court as a wee tiny child and not as a teen-ager. But I thought that at least there would be glorious costumes that would, perhaps, be inspirational.
They just showed Mary's ladies-in-waiting getting ready for a state dinner.
They're putting on make-up and wearing prom dresses.
Seriously. Eye liner. Prom dresses.
Not a single, solitary garment that looks anything like the 16th century.
I can only hope this thing is cancelled immediately if not sooner.
