My dislike for what I viewed on The Crown is a general dislike for this kind of movie
or series. It just so happens that certain kinds of fact based series, such as the drivel presenting the life of Princess Diana. I lump these into a general pile of dislike that includes Knotts Landing and Dallas and Dynasty - that kind of thing.
It's just a personal preference - we all can't like the same things or have the same tastes in books, films and TV shows.
Even though we, that's the Mrs and myself, have a preference for British dramas, comedy, TV Shows detective and crime dramas, does not mean that everything produced in Britain results in an enjoyable viewing experience.
British comedy is very hard to beat.

But, I was raised on American movies with a backdrop of WW2 They still number among my favourites. Topping my forever favourites are American film noir produced from broadly the early 1940s to the late 1950s. These are mainly crime movies in black and white with interesting lighting effects that creates shadows, glistening city streets from a recent rain fall. Detective stories from Raymond Chandler. Lots of old cars and stunningly beautiful women, often feme fatales, classy dames who seduce and manipulate some poor sucker for material gain. Gangsters, crooks bad guys. Good guys done down. Wonderful stuff.
