Becoming Elizabeth – Episode 2 – Elizabeth I’s #metoo moment is ruined

If I had a soapbox, I’d be getting on it this week! Honestly, I was so cross about episode 2 of the Starz series, “Becoming Elizabeth”! I was and still am fuming!

In the video below, I talk about a key storyline in this week’s “Becoming Elizabeth” episode. I’m so very disappointed in how they handled the Thomas Seymour and Elizabeth storyline. It’s like they took the #MeToo movement, threw it on the floor and stamped all over it. This was such a good opportunity to educate; instead, they made it a trashy romance
