Writing About: 'The Crown' Season 1 On Netflix

The second season of “The Crown” will premiere on Netflix, December 8. So here to help you catch up on the vital details of Season 1, and maybe even decide if you want to stream it (if you have not already), is this recap of what I’ve written about “The Crown” on various sites, including Eclectic Pop, Hidden Remote, and the Inquisitr.

Writing About: 'Poldark' Season 3 And Romelza

The third season of “Poldark” has flown by and so has the opportunity to write about it on the Inquisitr. It has been an exciting season to cover, albeit a rather sad one. The original luminosity that once radiated from the series has been replaced by an intensely overcast feeling.

The new tone is not especially surprising given what happened towards the end of Season 2 and that darkness has only grown in the next installment.

With no Jud and less Prudie, there are few laughs, and Ross Poldark (Aidan Turner) brooding about his mistakes, while not openly acknowledging them has only added further tension to the series. Despite all of this, the series is still engaging, and one of the many highlights has been how much the entire cast has continued to impress. 

Writing About: 'Poldark' Season 3 + 'Game of Thrones' Season 8

What do “Poldark” and “Game of Thrones” have in common? Besides both series being costume dramas, I have been writing about both of them on the Inquisitr.

“Poldark” Season 3 begins airing on PBS Masterpiece on October 1 and “Game of Thrones” recently ended its seventh season. While both series are in different places in their run, writing about them has been easy to do, as can be seen in previous Writing About features.

Writing About: 'Game of Thrones' Season 7: Questions, Opinions & Speculation

“Game of Thrones” Season 7 has drawn to an end. No! Yes, unfortunately, it is true. With three fewer episodes than its previous seasons, “Game of Thrones” flew by this year.

The good news is that Season 7 was exceptional; an absolute delicacy that united and reunited characters far and wide. Thanks to a newly heightened pace, the season was able to generate multiple momentous milestones.

It also provided ample material to write about. Previous seasons of “Game of Thrones” have historically offered many things to meditate on and Season 7 has been no exception. 

Here is what I’ve been writing about “Game of Thrones” Season 7 on the Inquisitr. Please be warned, spoilers for the entire season (Episodes 1 - 7) are discussed below. The links to read are in blue.

Now that “Poldark” Season 3 has finished airing in the U.K., the wait for the sensational series’ U.S. premiere on PBS Masterpiece has officially begun. With October 1 closer than ever before, let’s take a look at what I’ve been writing about the third season of the ITV/PBS series on the Inquisitr

Writing About: 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 & The Starks

“Game of Thrones” has always been the source of a tremendous amount of writing inspiration and that has only increased with Season 7. The HBO hit is one of the few series you can constantly speculate about, without the risk of getting bored, or worse, left wordless.

Thanks to its labyrinth of characters and myriad of storylines, you can write about hundreds of themes without ever stepping outside the “Game of Thrones” universe. While every character and story have their merits, House Stark is where this “Game of Thrones” fan’s heart, truly lies.

Writing About: Why 'The White Princess' Deserved Emmy Nominations + Burning Qs

Even though “The White Princess” went off the air in early June, there has been a lot of follow-up coverage to delve into. While fans await official word on whether or not Starz will green-light a follow-up to Season 1, these three features may help you endure the wait.

Whether it was making the case for "The White Princess" to be nominated for its share of 2017 Emmys, or wading through the burning questions posed by the series' Twitter account, "The White Princess" has provided a wealth of inspiration. This is what I have been writing about “The White Princess” on the Inquisitr. The links to read are in blue.

Writing About: 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Romance & Theories

Jon Snow, Tyrion and Daenerys - Character Poster for Game of Thrones Season 7
“Game of Thrones” Season 7 is so close; you can feel fire and ice converging in the atmosphere. It has been a little over a year since “Game of Thrones” ended its sixth season, and the wait for its seventh is almost over. If you are feeling a strange chill in the middle of summer, it probably has to do with the highly anticipated return of the HBO smash.

When we left Westeros, Cersei Lannister had taken command of the Iron Throne. Jon Snow had been declared the new King in the North. While Daenerys Targaryen set sail with her team and new hand, Tyrion Lannister, to take back the Iron Throne and rule the Seven Kingdoms.

Writing About: 'Poldark' Season 3 Premiere Info & Spoiler Alerts

Oh “Poldark.” What a series. The BBC, PBS Masterpiece series is one of those rare TV shows to have it all - riveting romance, lavish costumes, and exciting adventures. It is these three attributes that make “Poldark” as fun of a show to write about, as it is to watch.

In Ross Poldark (Aidan Turner), audiences have found a dimensional character, who can just as easily inspire one moment, as he frustrates the next. Ross is complicated and so his relationship with his devoted wife, Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson).

Writing About - The White Princess Theories, Reviews and Final Twists
Starz’s “The White Princess” has been an easy show to write about, thanks to its richly complex storyline, and densely written characters. As the adaptation of a historical fiction novel and a highly-anticipated follow-up series, “The White Princess” has offered a wealth of things to explore.

To put it directly, “The White Princess” is a writer’s paradise. Between investigating the series’ historical context and the connective tissue between it and “The White Queen,” there has been no shortage of material to sift through.

Writing About: 'The Last Kingdom' Season 2 On Netflix

“The Last Kingdom” Season 2 recently bowed on Netflix, after its initial run on BBC Two. For fans of the medieval series the wait has been arduous. “The Last Kingdom” Season 1 premiered in October 2015.

Covering the return of the Netflix/BBC series on the Inquisitr meant highlighting Season 1, and teasing and reviewing Season 2. So without further ado, let’s dig into what I have been writing about “The Last Kingdom.”

Writing About: The 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Premiere

There are few shows that are as fun to theorize about as HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” which is why so many of the articles I have contributed to the Inquisitr center on the series. The pop culture phenomenon has sent minds all over the globe into a tizzy, scrutinizing every detail that is available.

Writing About: 'The White Princess' Premiere on Starz

Covering the premiere of “The White Princess” on the Inquisitr has been incredibly exciting, and below you will find links to all of "The White Princess" articles, I have written so far. “The White Princess” is a new miniseries on Starz. It is a follow-up to the 2013 miniseries “The White Queen,” which starred Rebecca Ferguson as the titular protagonist, Elizabeth Woodville.
