I've recorded it - it looks good.
i liked it. Had to make sure my daughter had her headphones on tho!
I loved it!
I forgot it was on and missed it. Probably won't be on catch up till tomorrow now.
Question Author
I really enjoyed it...history + drama + comedy and wit + lavish interiors and costumes + court intrigue. Perfect!
I look forward to watching it. We watched The Serpent instead, much to our regret.
We watched the Serpent too, and really enjoyed it, but will get The Great on catchup as that looked good.
Watched the first episode...won't be watching any more. Would have been better as a straight drama rather than a comedy-drama and how much was fact and how much fantasy? I'd guess 10% fact.
It was a typical Channel 4 take on things (which I normally like) but missed the mark IMO.
Question Author
It was an American or joint American/ British production...first shown over there. Normally, I'd want fact not fiction...but from the trailers I knew what to expect.
Dramas based on factual events can't always contain precise and pure facts as they happened. It would be impossible so you need an element of artistic licence. Blackadder was far from accurate but brilliantly funny, even though based on factual events with added fictional characters.

Really looking forward to watching it later.
I agree with both the above posts (11.20 and 11.29) and also knew what to expect...but it just was too silly for my liking.
Not that I place much credence on the Daily Mail's TV critic usually, but he gave it 2 stars after a full-page critique and ended with ....
"every minute of this dross was a struggle".
So, obviously polarizes opinion!
I can't remember the last time I read a review about anything by a media critic. I guess they too need to earn their money somehow ;o)
