As only 3 episodes have aired so far, I'm impressed with some of the production, with a few exceptions, namely John Malkovich's inability to speak with a French accent. It would have been better had he not even tried. If the makers of this series wanted it to be truly realistic, all actors would either have been speaking in French or German. That aside, at least the production included one of the more important aspects of WW2 - the Polish Franco intelligence resistance fighters, many of whom were teenagers. Catherine Dior was in fact taken to a camp, and after the allies' liberation, was able to return to Paris. Her story is well known for those who wish to read about it. Thousands of resistance fighters met the guillotine, or were shot over the course of the war. I also remind readers that over 50 million died during WW2, a senseless slaughter that could have been avoided had the monsters been stopped in Munich. I look forward to actually getting to the story of Dior and Chanel in the years ahead, as that's what I thought this series was about. I've read and researched WW2 enough to last a life time. I don't need Apple TV to try and educate, whether accurately or inaccurately about this horrific time in history, as it'll be the simplistic version that most WW2 movies depict, which are usually devoid of the slaughter of intellectuals (teachers professors and so on) homosexuals, gypsies, physically/mentally handicapped people, etc. By the Nazis. No one was safe.
