“Ugh look at them lampooning ol’ Margaret Thatcher and evangelizing Princess Diana,” moaned Twitter user Justice4TheOA. “Oh God, now they’re showing us the inside of their houses, and now the streets outside their houses. Look at that- a red telephone box! I think I’m gonna be sick.”
In what many consider Netflix’s most controversial show, The Crown has remained steadfast in its mission to portray the UK, despite vehement protest from viewers.
“We’ve had our fill of England or Brexit or whatever they call themselves these days,” wrote TV critic Hannah Sommersby of The New Yorker. “How many more Peter Morgan royal reenactments must we be subject to? First The Queen, then The Crown, what’s next The Limited Edition Princess Diana Beanie Baby?!”
While some avid royal enthusiasts bristle at the show’s editorializing of real events, the largest group of naysayers are upset to be shown any part of the UK’s rainy, dreary, miserable countryside.
A representative from the show commented, “We recognize and appreciate that many viewers believe we are ‘colonizing’ their streaming service, however we’re simply honouring the British way.”
The show is slated to begin production on the fifth season this month. The upcoming season will cover the 90s, which is notoriously known to be one of the most uneventful decades in the Royal Family.
