After watching the first few episodes of Netflix's The Crown, it's clear that the show is rich in so many things, from scenery to costuming, to acting, but with only 10 episodes in the first season, it was over too fast, and it will be about another year before Season 2 is ready. But with The Crown, there are so many details and intricacies that are easily missed, watching Season 1 on Netflix a second time makes sense. That's why The Crown is perfect binge-watching for the Thanksgiving holiday (at least until Gilmore Girls is released on Friday).
Peter Morgan, the creator of Netflix's The Crown set out to make the story of the life of Queen Elizabeth an epic, and a piece of modern history that could be easily digested in a Netflix serial format, says the Inquisitr. Morgan wants to tell the full story without rushing it, and the best place to start seemed to be with the wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip.
Had the story started when Elizabeth rose to the throne, then viewers might not have understood all the bedlam that the abdication of King Edward VIII caused when his brother, King George VI, was forced to take the crown in his absence. Even after the death of Queen Elizabeth's father, Edward VIII, and his wife, Wallis Warfield Simpson, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, continue to be a thorn in the side of the royals.
