There is no doubt that ‘The Crown” has outdone all the other shows already produced on the royal family’s scandalous life and the sacrifices made in the name of duty. The show itself and the filmmakers have garnered much attention from the entire globe, including the Buckingham Palace.
The show’s 4th season has recently come out, and I have been stuck to my TV screen for hours after work. However, it didn’t take very long for me to binge-watch the entire season despite the busy schedule. After finishing the show, I felt a sudden urge to watch more of what happens next and how the events unfold behind the Palaces’ walls. While I gave reading history a chance, Netflix’s algorithm has been showing plenty of similar historical dramas/films/series that can be binge-watched this holiday reason.
