The Royals (2015) Revenge is gone, and something filthy has to fill the vacuum. I'm 9 episodes in and there's blood in the water. The story starts (on a parallel Earth, very similar to our own) with the modern day King of England being very alive, and his son the Prince meeting a charming American girl named Ophelia. Then there's several 90210-like episodes where the younger cast go mental on sex and drugs, while the evil Joan Collin'sesque King's brother does a lot of gay stuff... Oh, and Joan Collins does show up playing the Queen Mother, a far bigger bitch than Ripley's Xenomorph, god bless her cotton socks. It's rot, made for idiots, with some explosive moments for the gullible and easily pleased, but we all feel like indulging ourselves with soapy drivel now and then. So, who here is uncultured enough to admit that they are watching?
