Philosophising about the 'S'-word: Watch… and learn

Almost Royal

the series philosopher almost royal wikiAlmost Royal is a faux-reality television series on the BBC America network. It is their first original comedy series. It follows the lives of two clueless British aristocrats—Georgie and Poppy Carlton—visiting the United States for the first time. The series stars Ed Gamble and Amy Hoggart as Georgie and Poppy, respectively. It is produced by Burning Bright Productions and premiered on June 21, 2014. While Georgie and Poppy are both portrayed by actors it is unclear whether the Americans with whom they interact in the show are aware of this.

The series begins after Georgie and Poppy’s father suffers a fatal accident. His dying wish was for his children to travel to the United States, a country he loved. Thus, Georgie and Poppy travel across the Atlantic, first to Los Angeles, then to Boston and Philadelphia. Georgie hopes to become more manly from learning about the United States, while Poppy hopes to procure a job that does not require very much work, such as an actress. In the introduction to every episode their ranking in line to inherit the throne changes, which is always 50 or more places away.
