The Queen is dead. Long live the Queen! Ironically the Reign TV show, which has displayed little regard for history, soon itself will be history. To give this cancelled TV show its due, Reign was a cheesy fun romp with extra cheese. This sort of guilty pleasure is not good for one’s cholesterol levels, and yet, I cannot resist. While there is no season five to look forward to, I gleefully anticipate supping on the remains of Reign after its season four and TV series finale.
