Turn Series Premiere Review: “Pilot” (Season 1, Episode 1)

6 April 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two of the biggest genre guarantees in television history are spy stories – everything from the loopy comic brilliance of Get Smart to the intrigue of FX’s terrific The Americans – and historical dramas, including celebrated miniseries like Roots and, recently, Hatfields & McCoys. However, bridge the two genres together and the results do not bustle with as much promise.

AMC’s newest drama, Turn, brims with intrigue but is subpar with its execution for the first hour. It tells the true story of America’s first spy ring in Revolution-era America. Rebel farmers in the Northeastern U.S. organized the Culper Ring to monitor the occupying British, later relaying this intel to Gen. George Washington’s army. (As the brief opening text explains, Washington’s rebels retreated into the wilderness, with much of New York and Brooklyn Harbor under British control.) The Culper Ring is already in action as the episode begins, »

AMC’s ‘Turn’: The Loyalists’ Rationale (Exclusive Video)

26 March 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In a Variety exclusive teaser for AMC’s upcoming Revolutionary War spy drama, “Turn,” viewers get a look at the characters that make up the Loyalists.

“Pirates of the Caribbean’s” Kevin McNally plays Richard Woodhull, a staunch loyalist and a judge magistrate.

“Richard believes in law and order and doesn’t see how a nation without a king can effectively govern itself,” executive producer Craig Silverstein says in the clip.

This puts him in direct conflict with his son Abraham Woodhull (Jamie Bell), a member of the Culper Ring spies working for General George Washington during America’s War of Independence.

“Abe believes he should be in a free country and Richard believes it’s Ok to be royal subjects,” Bell says.

Viewers also get a look at the villain of the series, Lt. John Simcoe, who enforces the occupants of the crown.

Samuel Roukin who plays Simcoe, said, »
