First I should say that this show airs on a regular station not HBO or Showtime or Starz, which are geared towards being much more "adult" tv. So if your looking for a show that has any violence or nudity, this is not it. I've watched both Tudors and The White Queen and enjoy this show, it's meant just to be a fun show that isn't so serious. I do agree with a lot of other reviewers that it's on the same production scale as Downtown Abbey. The costumes and scenery are all wonderful, and I really like all the characters.

For those of you who are wondering, this show will NOT be getting a Blu-Ray release. However, a DVD is available, with good picture quality and *very* good sound. It certainly beats unreliable streaming options.

Subtitles for the episodes are included in English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese.

As far as special features go, there are deleted scenes available for most episodes, and two featurettes -- Reign: The Making of a Queen; and The Authenticity of Reign: Recreating the 16th Century. The two featurettes are surprisingly informative, despite their short length (a combined total of about 30 minutes should get you through both of them). The deleted scenes range from short extensions, to very interesting scenes showcasing plot points that were less clear in the broadcast episode.

As far as the show goes, I watched it hoping for a CW-ized version of "The Tudors," and basically got that. Fabulous teens in fabulous clothes, acting against the backdrop of trendy music. After a handful of episodes, I managed to convert my wife over to the show, and we spent the second half of the season watching it together and having a hoot.

We would laugh, we would guess what kind of twist was going to happen next (and were usually right), yet it felt more like we were laughing along *with* the show, not so much *at* it.

The production team undoubtedly knows exactly what kind of show they're making, and they must have a blast doing it, because we have a blast watching it.

I couldn't help but smile after seeing how the program got lambasted on twitter for being "historically inaccurate." Criticizing Reign for being historically inaccurate is like criticizing Star Wars for being scientifically inaccurate.

This series is very loosely based on the story of Mary Queen of Scots. There are a bunch of people getting all rawled up that it isn't 100% historically accurate.... but seriously, this is the CW, not PBS. What did you really expect? :-)

This series has it all -
* a delicious love triangle
* scandal
* politics
* amazing costumes (so what if they aren't historically accurate?!)
* great cast

Every week, I look forward to Thursday night. I'm happy that there is finally an entertaining show that doesn't have anything to do with cops, or crime scenes, or wannabe pop stars.

Although I know historically that Queen May ends up locked up by her cousin Queen Elizabeth in the end, I never really thought through the perspective of what it would be like to be in her shoes when she left her country to marry Francis. I love Mary's perspective and spirit, the supernatural elements,and the love and betrayal already present in this series. I realize that some people are giving this show harsh reviews and saying it historically inaccurate, but come on...this is a CWTV show that is dramatized, not a documentary. I am personally a big fan. I can't wait to see what happens.

Though the first thing I can tell you about this show is that it isn't historically accurate in the slightest, take comfort in the fact that it isn't trying to be. The main character is Mary, the Queen of Scotland who (in this version) is engaged to the future king of France named Francis. I absolutely fell in love with this show because Mary isn't only a strong woman, but she's intelligent, loyal, and clever. She also has a kind heart which she tries to use to do the right thing as often as she can. While at times she escapes death by the skin of her teeth, its nice to see that so many characters are willing to stand by her even when they waver in their own loyalties. Love and marriage in this series is largely political, and the reasons behind why people do what they do are revealed for the audience. It's also nice to note that there is a clear display of the differences between the rich origins of each culture. Its lovely to see this clash appear in many of the dance scenes. It's also nice that they've brought modern music tastefully into the show. What's not to love?

This series is as high of a production value as downton abby or Vikings. I hope more costume dramas become available soon. Yes please stop making so many cop/murder shows and do more historical romance.

The production team undoubtedly knows exactly what kind of show they're making, and they must have a blast doing it, because we have a blast watching it. It's silly, but in all of the right ways: the very definition of a guilty pleasure, yet one that I'll recommend despite the knowledge that I'll be "judged" for the admission that I love it.

I couldn't help but smile after seeing how the program got lambasted on twitter for being "historically inaccurate." Criticizing Reign for being historically inaccurate is like criticizing Star Wars for being scientifically inaccurate. It seems that access to Wikipedia makes people feel like experts in history, so when I see hilarious complaints like "Mary has no Scottish accent" based on a total lack of knowledge, I know exactly what type of people these critics are: people who have no ACTUAL knowledge of history, but want to be trendy nonetheless.

No one could be dumb enough to expect this show to be historically accurate, so let's set that complaint aside, and enjoy the show and its fun "twists" on historical events (there's a wonderful one in the season finale).

PARENTAL NOTE: There is a moderate amount of violence, more graphic than you would typically see on network TV, and plenty of sexual content that wouldn't fly, save for the setting.
