    This seems such a nice story, but with enough spark and backstabbing to make it really interesting. The cast is new and interesting and can´t wait for it to happen :D

    i love megan follows she would be my only reason to even DVR this show.

  3. Ava says:

    Love her! Can’t wait for the premier. With The White Queen winding down, it will be nice to have a new historical drama to watch.

  4. Cherry says:

    I hope this does well. It seems pretty good from the previews. I love the darker side of the CW.

    im interested by the fact that the CW is tackling a period piece… casting Megan Follows was the best decision they could have made though! whenever she laughs i can hear Anne LOL im such a nerd

      It’s really hard not to see her as Anne (with an E!) Anne of Green Gables had such a huge impact on me growing up. I still watch it every few years. It’s a great sick-day watch, or even if you’re feeling a little down. Megan Follows is so talented; she’s the only reason I’m watching this show! :)

    I really hope this does well. It makes sense for the CW to do a period drama – and the twist on Mary Queen of Scots is super appealing (even to this history buff) . And Megan Follows!!!

  7. Ashly says:

    Oooh, looks good. This is one of the few new shows I was looking forward to this fall.

  8. David Nickle says:

    Sound track is annoying, irritating, disrupting!!!!!! Can’t you just show the drama without the background noise? It’s like canned laughter to “give excitement” to the story line. Dispense with the noisy background or we are tunding out

    Megan Follows’ Annie in “Anne of Green of Green Gables” was a classic performance and her star quality comes through again equally strong three decades later in her rendering of French Queen Catherine.
