Look what we have in the US... an a-hole.  I'd take the Royal Family over our POTUS family any day.

At least Chucks sons make an effort to show compassion for others and don’t act like preppie douchebags unlike Beavis and Buttface Clinton..

Fixed.  :)

The point isn't to favor one side over the other but simply to point out the fact that people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.  No side is any better,  Enough of grandstanding please.  Not saying that's what you're doing, but it happens every day.

Observing the British Royal Family takes our focus off the KhardASSians.

Besides having daddy as a rich well known celeb lawyer...what value does the rest of them actually bring to us? I'm at a lost to find any.

I have no interest in the Royals current day. I do enjoy historical based TV dramas, films and documentaries. I found season one of The Crown very engaging, to see history from the perspective of Elizabeth II, how the Royals and British government functioned together.

Yes, the first season was good!  John Lithgow did a great job as Churchill, I thought.

I've said it for years:

I think of the royal family like I think of my own socks: don't love or hate them, they're just sort of there.

Easily replaceable?

Stink?

Holes?

Quitters ((you know, the drooping ones that fall down to your ankles))?

Anachronistic, irrelevant bread-snappers, they're nothing but a drain on the taxpayer, and serve only as opium for the masses of servile, forelock tugging arseholes who are so easily distracted by such fripperies.

Stink?? No!

My feet are like two fresh daisies!

You call them "holes". I call them "ventilation"!!!

I know!  After seeing him as Dr. Who, it's kind of hard to make the leap.  The same cast is in Season 2, but I guess in Season 3 they will be replaced with older actors to show the passage of time.

Matt Smith was a Dr Who? You’re correct about season 3.

Yeah. But I couldn’t stand him. Nobody has measured up to David Tennant.
