How are you liking the Crown S4?

There is a lot of good stuff to watch these days. Maybe that explains why The Crown Season 4 hasn't grabbed me after watching one episode. The show is now moving into an era of history that I lived through. Maybe that's why I haven't jumped on the second episode yet.

I loved Claire Foy and Vanessa Kirby is probably my favorite young actress these days - she was amazing in S1&2, but I think that Helena Bonham Carter was an ingenious bit of casting.

I've got other stuff I want to watch tonight... maybe episode two will be tomorrow...

Anyone tear through the whole thing already?

It's OK, but not as compelling as S1 & 2. For another great brit show, Line of Duty is fantastic.

They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

We have watched three or four episodes so far.
I am still liking it.
I think the early seasons were better, for the reasons you mentioned, but it is still good.

I just finished it this afternoon. I had a hard time with all the Margaret Thatcher storyline. Gillian Anderson is a marvel, but this one was just a bit too artificial for me to buy. The Diana on the other hand, just gets better and better. She has the body language down perfectly. And Charles is growing on me. Not a huge Olivia Coleman fan, but oh well.
I did finish it and am hoping I like next season a bit more

Note that the writer of Line of Duty also wrote Bodyguard, which was also excellent.

Other great Brit cop shows:
Happy Valley
Shetland
Broadchurch
