‘The Crown’, Season 4 On Netflix Has Reminded Me How Much I Detest Bloody Prince Charles!

by Anura Guruge


A screengrab from Netflix “The Crown” Season 4, Episode 9.



Yes, his ‘admirers’ will claim that at 72 & married to Camilla that he is a better, rounder, more mature man.

But, Season 4 of “The Crown” reminded me how loathsome he was & probably still is.

Some of the STUPID, puerile (tampax-related) statements he had made in the late 1970s.

It is all coming back like a very bad nightmare. I detest that man.

Yes, when I was in my 20s, like many of us that age, I was a PROUD anti-monarchist. But, as I got older I started to appreciate & like the Queen. I have really got fond of her over the last 20-years THOUGH I know she has her faults.

But, bloody Charles. I am NOT sure I can find any redeeming qualities.

He can’t be King!

I will have to look into this. I know this has been talked about before.

We are addicted to this show and have hungrily watched each and every episode, sometimes 2 or 3 at a sitting. Teischan went back over the Summer and watched it ALL — all over again — on her own.

We discovered this Australian series, serendipitously, on ‘Acorn TV‘ (on our Roku), in 2015 and were hooked as of Episode 1. We think of it as an Australian “Downton Abbey“. Good storyline. Has you both rooting for various characters and in ‘suspenders’. Very watchable.

Teischan will be so excited.

Kind of cute. Season 4, last year, also premiered on Thanksgiving Day (albeit 2016). So, Acorn is kind of teasing us. That is OK.

This made my day. Yippeee!

So we are excited to see that Season 4 will start airing between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. That means that there will only be 5 or 6 episodes. That is a shame but it is better than nothing.

You have been warned.

Mr. Selfridge, Season 4, Snuck Up On Us, With No Warning From PBS — Albeit To Our Delight.

by Anura Guruge

Though we, as true devotees, watched all the 9 episodes of “Downton AbbeySeason 6 (alas, the final season) plus all of the other ‘milk-it’ shows that went before and after (e.g., the ‘BAFTA Awards‘ for the show) we did not see any trailers or promos for Season 4 (alas, also another final season) for ‘Mr. Selfridge‘. We only found out because our DISH DVR was programmed to record all new episodes of PBSMasterpiece Theater” and as such recorded Sunday’s episode, i.e., episode 1. I actually first thought that it was a rerun — having been convinced that Season 3 was the last.

We were wrong and we are delighted. We discovered “Mr. Selfridge” on Amazon Prime Video, serendipitously, after we had finished watching Seasons 1 to 5 of “Downton Abbey”, more or less nightly, on Prime. “Mr. Selfridge” was a great antidote for “Downton Abbey” withdrawal until we discovered, on British ‘Acorn’, the Australian “A Place To Call Home“. Teischan (then 9), who became quite the “Downton” expert, also knew “Mr. Selfridge” characters, storyline and plots very well. So we are all happy. I just checked that the other 8 episodes of Season 4 will be recorded. You can catch reruns of “Mr. Selfridge” Season 4 episode 1 on Saturday and Sunday and it is probably also on Roku. It is on Prime, albeit at $1.99 an episode.

Enjoy. We will. [I have been very familiar with the Oxford St. store since 1967 and for a few months in 1979 worked in an office just around the corner from the store.]
