CRUSH OF THE WEEK: REIGN

Recently, while on planes or waiting at airports, I have been binge watching this fantastic American TV show called Reign. As per usual, it was my best friend that got me addicted to it in the first place… The show is vaguely about the Queen of Scotland, the King of France and well, very politically strategic engagements.
.
At first, I wasn’t even able to start watching the show when she recommended it as I was in the middle of watching Riverdale (link to my post about that HERE and HERE) Red Band Society (link to my post about that HERE) and 13 Reasons Why (link to that post HERE).
.
But after I quickly finished watching all of those, I delved straight into Reign. Although I really don’t want to spoil it for you guys by giving you too much info, I will definitely tell you that it’s fantastic and is just the perfect combination of drama, romance, action, history, and horror! It encompasses, like I said before, the rise to power of Mary Queen of Scots (Kane) and tells the tale of a secret survival while touching on dark forces, evil spirits, and sexual intrigue. Spooky yet enticing right?
.
Well, this show has had loads of positive reviews! Its second season was even voted 100% good on rottentomatoes.com !!
.
Amongst the many parts of the show that I’m obsessed with, the costumes seem to out shadow everything. The amount of precision, delicacy, and detail put into the antique dresses was simply fascinating to watch! I fell in love with ever costume…
.
Also, this amazing show is coincidentally filmed in Canada (apart from the pilot which was filmed in Ireland)!! Although I have never mentioned it to you guys before, Canada is literally my favorite place on earth! I have a house there so I tend to go over every summer!!! So yeah, there’s yet another reason why I love Reign!
.
I’m also, along with the costumes and where the show is filmed, obsessed with the characters! It’s been such a long time since I’ve seen son many individuals, raw characters with actual depth! Amongst the many characters that I love are Francis (played by Toby Regbo), Kenna (played by Caitlin Stasey), Mary (played by Adelaide Kane) and Sebastian (played by Torrance Coombs). Choosing a favorite between those four was practically impossible but I did come to somewhat of a conclusion saying that I like Francis’s personality the most!
.
In contrast to how I feel about them, the character Lola really aggravates me. Played by Anna Popplewell who is an actress that I normally enjoy watching and have seen in Narnia, Lola is just useless and extremely irritable throughout the show….
.
On a brighter note, I’d like to casually mention that I got a comment, like and a shoutout on Instagram from one of ‘Reign’s’ main actresses: Rachel Skarsten who plays Queen Elizabeth the first! Because of an amazing charity campaign! Cool right?
.
Anyways concerning the show itself, I have not finished it in its entirety yet. I’m half way through season two on Netflix and am super excited to finish! Most notably, I can’t wait to watch the intense Reign finale that came out yesterday!!!
.
Love, Tiffany Lea

If any of you guys watch Reign already, do you prefer Francis or Bash? Also, what is your favorite season? And if you don’t, are you willing to try? What’s your favorite TV show? Tell me!!
