Storyline

The young blades are French royal 'musketeer' guards (despite the name sword-fighters, not sharpshooters) of the generation after the legendary, now knighted Gascon hero D'Artagnan and his three mentors. They include his son, now known as D'Artagnan, and his companions in arms, stationed in the Bastille, under captain Duvall's command: Siroc the erudite inventor and Ramon, a romantic, poetically gifted Spaniard who deserted the Habsburg camp, France's arch-rival. They are joined by a late musketeer's daughter Jaqueline, who masquerades (only D'Artagnan junior knows) as her imaginary brother Jacques (the real one being no good at fighting and fled to America), looking for revenge and glory. Louis XIII's son Louis XIV, the future Sun king, is now on the French throne although a mere boy, ruled in name by his vain and useless mother, Queen-regent Ann, and in fact by cardinal Richelieu's hand-picked, Italian-born successor, cardinal Mazarin.

Jacqueline Roget: Is catching a palace spy so boring?
D'Artagnan: Waiting to catch one is. I know a game we can play to stay awake.
Jacqueline Roget: I know that game too. You're the *last* man on earth I'd play it with.
D'Artagnan: [smirks] You're the *only* man on earth I'd play it with.

Done in a style similar to that of Xena, though it came later. The costumes are award-winning, but the rest of the show is very tongue-in-cheek. There are some inconsistencies and plot holes, but I loved the first 12 (of 13) episodes.

For a show that seems so low-budget, I was really impressed with the actors. Most of them were actually very good at their roles, and managed to develop actual characters, even though this can be very difficult with such outrageous lines. It didn't hurt that the musketeer boys were all pretty cute, too ;)

I was really sad to see this show cancelled, as were some friends of mine. The final episode was also quite disappointing.
