    I feel like every Lewis Capaldi song is catchy and overwrought.

      I’ll know what I feel in my heart is so real:
      I am so very thankful for my family and friends;
      “Happy Thanksgiving Wishes!” to all I do send!

      Happy Thanksgiving, to my CB “family”! I love coming here every day and reading your thoughtful and funny insights 😊

    Erin Doherty truly is magnificent and the best thing about this season of The Crown.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you have a great day with your family & friends!

    I’m still royally ticked off that Anne’s foiled kidnapping isn’t dramatized on The Crown. Would have been much more interesting to watch than say Phillip’s midlife crisis and Charles’s extended angst over losing Camilla. Too much male angst and not enough female power. That’s what would have been celebrated in the Anne kidnapping story. A female director would have done this. Just saying.

    Happy Thanksgiving 🍁 to everyone!

    • Erinn says:

      I really don’t understand why they wouldn’t have picked that!? It was a true event, and a pretty big deal. There’s a lot of the Phillip related plots with a loose grasp on reality. I’m not sure why they’d forego a kidnap plot and then just make up a more boring plot point.

    • Ainsley7 says:

      It was so disappointing that they skipped Anne’s epic moment. They chose to cover 12 years this season rather than only 8 like the previous seasons. There was plenty of material to work with, but it seems like they just wanted to fast forward to the Diana years. They didn’t even bother to mention Anne getting married or having a son. So, Anne is just going to suddenly have a husband and a kid out of nowhere next season.

    • bettyrose says:

      I had to Google that because I’d never heard of it. Yeah, 1974, definitely well within Season 3. Now I’m disappointed too. I feel like this season has plenty of extraneous content that could have been sidelined in favor of those kind of dramatic events.

      Also, I’ve been dying to ask an RF expert, the stuff about Liz & Philip sabotaging Charles’s relationship with Camilla, manipulating the Shand & Parker-Bowles families into planning a marriage, is that real? I’d never heard that side of things either (I always thought Camila just rejected Philip for her true love and then reconnected with him when her marriage went south).

    • BellaBella says:

      So agree with @Other Renee about too much male angst. There was not enough women-centered plotlines on the Crown this season. Mountbatten was a snoozefest. I fastforwarded every time he was on screen. And Philip’s midlife crisis? The moon-landing? Like this was a major event for the Royals?

      • bettyrose says:

        IKR? I was captivated by the first two seasons, and bringing powerhouses like Olivia Colman and Helena Bonham Carter on board seemed like portents of great things. Colman was amazing, no question. HBC didn’t get nearly enough screen time. I wanted so much more Margaret (spin off anyone??). I wasn’t previously familiar with the actress who played Anne, and really don’t know much about Anne at all, but she was a major scene stealer. (I’ve never been too interested in Philip’s story lines, but Matt Smith was a joy to watch with those angsty brooding eyes, so I missed him this season).

      • BellaBella says:

        @bettyrose — And wasn’t that new priest the creepiest EVER?

      • bettyrose says:

        Ha! If it were up to me, all script writers would be required to watch Fleabag Season 2 as a study in writing priest characters. :-) :-) :-)

      • BellaBella says:

        @bettyrose — COSIGN. I’m seeing him in a one-man play on Saturday! Can’t wait!!

      • bettyrose says:

        BellaBella:
        Yaaay! Enjoy! :-)

    Happy thanksgiving to all the US CB’s.

    Non-stop turkey talk (I work for a US company) has made me want turkey round 2. I think I might just go full Canadian though, and make a thanksgiving poutine this weekend haha.

    In the words of Linda Belcher “Pass the cranberry sauce! We’re having mashed potatoeeessss”.

    To all the writers of this, my favorite celeb site: Whether you are a canned cranberry sauce American or a real cranberry sauce American (the true divide in our nation), enjoy the food, the loved ones, the feeding the dogs under the table, the Macy’s parade, the football, the naps, the kids playing in the backyard, or, the solitude and quiet of a fall day.

    And may the family drama be more funny than stressful.
    Happy Thanksgiving to all.

  9. Mrs. Smith says:
