At one stage the French emperor is referred to as "His Imperial Highness". This is incorrect. The term "highness" is used to denote a descendant of an emperor such as a prince or princess, not the emperor himself. He is properly styled "His Imperial Majesty". See more »

"What Took You So Long?" (dialog)
20 March 2016 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Well, aside from the above dialog attributed to the Queen in an episode appropriately named "Kill The Queen", I can tell you what took this writer so long to upload the review.

I was working on a "tension meter" to assist in my IMDb reviews. Beyond writing, acting, direction, sets, I wanted to try to pinpoint moments of raw tension where, essentially, the viewer will abstain from eating or talking or texting -- or just about any bodily function you could think of -- just to see what happens next...? Once I had a working prototype,I applied my brand-new Tension Meter to the pivotal scene in this episode -- the attempt to thwart the aforesaid killing or the aforesaid Queen -- and got a perfect score.

Wow. Another milestone for this series.

After the storming of Paris, I did not think the writers could top themselves, but this one is a keeper.

The History Channel? Who knew? Decades of boring documentaries, then suddenly Hatfields and McCoys, and now one of the most spellbinding series in the "history' of TV - pun intended.
