Definitely recommend. Great story. As a young man it is difficult for him to fully "comprehend it" regarding his bio mother's heartbreak but as the years go by he will understand her more and more and weep for her. Love that he gets to bond with his identical twin.
I liked season one better because it was less muddled. Season 2 I think should have been broken down into two seasons instead of one. So many battles going on and intrigue and then there is the religious fanaticism and the Inquisition tortures, burning and cruelty. I had to fast forward the torture scenes. I thought the depiction of the Moors and how they lived to be too superficial, would have liked to have seen city scenes but that comment is in general for all of medieval Spain - sorry they do not show us city life more but I guess it is the budget. Also mostly indoors and dark and drab for a country flooded with light and sunshine. ( but I guess that also is because they needed to follow a budget, just like Isabel and Ferdinand need money, money, money)
Its difficult for me to follow the subs because they speak so quickly compared to what i am used listening and reading subs for the Korean. But this is very action packed. It is amazing how many battles and fighting and conniving and back stabbing went on. I feel so sorry for these women who are at the mercy of arranged power marriages, the men can fool around but they can not.
