And Then I Read: THE ROYALS 5

Just when I thought this miniseries couldn’t get any more depressing, or the characters any more reprehensible, the King of England takes center stage. His younger son Henry is still trying to fight the good fight but ineffectively, his older son Arthur continues to be cruel, horrible and worthless, at least until he finds out what has happened to their sister Rose, but it’s the father who proves the worst of the lot by far. If your idea of tragedy is looking closely at destructive behavior, you may enjoy this series. I don’t, but having come this far, I’ll read the final issue when I get to it.

Not recommended.
