Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on June 19, 2013

whitequeenThe White Queen is a BBC/Starz series about the war of the roses. It’s basically Game of Thrones, but without the sex, violence, dragons, sense of humor, and instantly compelling characters. Who has the rightful claim to the throne? Let’s stand around and talk about it and also have two people fall in love. So… I didn’t even make it to the end, because this is definitely not for me.

Amusingly, the writer of The White Queen is Emma Frost, who shares a name with comics’ White Queen. She gave an interview to the comic character’s fan site where she gave some backstory on it. I was hoping the show started as a joke but somehow ended up getting greenlit, but alas that was not the case.
