BBC's The Musketeers


Television


BBC is launching their new Musketeers series today, Sunday 19th.
It will launch in the US too, although the BBC America site only says "Spring 2014" with no precise release date.
Here's a trailer for the show.

Dark Archive

I've seen the first two episodes and I really enjoy this series. I like that they have departed from the book and d'Artagnan is not some sort of fencing prodigy. It is also obvious that the actors are spending time practicing with their swords. You can see the improvement from the first to second episodes. I look forward to watching this whole series (season).


I've seen 20 minutes of the pilot and decided that the writing was too dumb for my tastes.


I like it more than Merlin and Atlantis

It is nice to see the grime and rain and enormous matchlocks

Skip to the second episode.

It's still not brilliant (why are we so often meant to cheer for people who run around like headless chicken while the bad guy is, y'know, vaguley intelligent) but pretty good.

The first one is doing a lot of very simplistic character baseline stuff.

Although, I'm still trying to process the Musketeer's job using lines taken directly from spoofs of cop shows: "You. My office. Now."

Nah, I'm good, thanks. I watch too many not-so-good shows already, I don't need another one.


Pretend it's a session of savage world's rpg and you will be fine!!


Corking season finale

Coming to bbc USA soon

Do love the costumes, muskets and style in the series

It improved over the run, and I'm glad that they started outsmarting people as well as out-fighting them.

I enjoyed the little moral at the end, very apt.


Definitely enjoyed the, short, series. Looking forward to the second season - although I'm curious as to what they'll do without Peter Capaldi.
The first season should start airing on June 22 on BBC America.

Silver Crusade

They might replace Richelieu with Mazerin a bit early?
