Directed by Brad Silberling. With Adelaide Kane, Megan Follows, Torrance Coombs, Toby Regbo. After spending a childhood safely hidden away in a monastery, a teenage Mary Stuart arrives in France where she has been sent to secure Scotland's strategic alliance by formalizing her arranged engagement to the French King's dashing son, Prince Francis. Further complicating things is Bash, Francis' handsome, roguish half-brother and Francis' mother, Queen Catherine.
I was a bit impressed to recognize and correctly place the name of Megan Follows in the opening credits from having watched Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea in my youth.
I’ll give this a second episode, but I don’t know if I’ll have the stomach for any more.
