The show provides a unique version of a complicated story from French history. The Serpent Queen stands out for its use of modern language in the Renaissance-era and Catherine consistently breaking the fourth wall to speak directly to viewers. While the show is raunchy and lacks diversity, it's an engrossing watch for those interested in the featured time period, the French monarchy, or the Medici family. The crossing timelines will leave viewers wanting to know more about Catherine's past and present.
