Re: Reign - The CW

Out of boredom or madness, I watched the repeat of the pilot last night.

I wasn't as annoyed by it as I was the first time around, perhaps because I knew to expect the wild tonal shifts from costume drama to teen soap.

Depending on how closely Reign hews to history, Mary and Francis will be wed within a year, King Henry will be dead within two, and Francis will be dead within three. There you go, your season finales!

It's probably too much to hope for this series that it lasts four seasons and Mary, back in Scotland, has to deal with John Knox and the Scottish Reformation. That would be wild, mainly because it would be fascinating to see how a CW series deals with the Catholic/Protestant conflict.
