Marco Polo Season 2 Review

27 June 2016 9:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Four episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

It’s been 18 months since Marco Polo debuted its first season on Netflix, and even though it hit with a bit of a resounding dud, the show had its apologists, and I was one of them. A lot didn’t work (it’s hard to overstate that), including thin characterization, thinner world building and clunky, utterly un-bingeable plotting. But the show had style, with neat action set pieces and an unpretentious tackling of the medieval-sex-and-gore genre – which feels all but necessitated by every network thanks to Game of Thrones – resulting in a show that was palatable for me, despite being somewhat of an overall mess.

The series is based on the famous 13th Century explorer, following his adventures in the Court of Kublai Han, among greed, betrayal, sexual intrigue and violent rivalry.

John Fusco, creator of the series and executive producer and showrunner along with Dan Minahan stated:

Michelle Yeoh is not only a screen legend and one of the greatest international action stars of all time, she’s one of the best actors of her generation. So we are thrilled to have her join one of the most diverse ensembles in television and bring her unique talents to Marco Polo.

Her role in the second season is one that’s going to add even more intrigue, mystery, and Asian martial arts to our rich story world. »

Gripping Marco Polo Season 2 Trailer Confirms July Premiere

9 June 2016 8:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Thanks in large part to the superhero fandom that continues to grip Hollywood, much of the praise that is directed at Netflix’s slate of original series often involves the company’s partnership with Marvel – be that in the form of Daredevil or Jessica Jones.

But there’s a whole host of greatness scattered right across the Netflix library (not to mention spooky ’80s series Stranger Things) particularly now that the online giant is ramping up its output to encompass high-profile feature films. Circling back to those early years, however, and one series that struck a chord with subscribers is Marco Polo – with its compelling cast and lush rendition of 13th Century China – which is now primed to return on July 1.

In anticipation of its imminent premiere, Netflix has now rolled out an all-new trailer for the original drama, welcoming back Lorenzo Richelmy in the title role. There’s a new nemesis to confront, »
