Young Blades is a really good family show...and I'm not just saying
that because it's my favorite...Karen is GREAT in all her shows.
Especially this one, Mutant X, and Adventure Inc. The guys are really
HOT! Ramon's poetry is really cool too...I look forward to seeing the
rest of the series...
it's not great but it has some really good pictures on it.
I really hope that everyone reading this will continue to watch Young Blades or, if they haven't yet started, try to catch an episode or two as soon as you can!
Search for pictures of this show too...thats always fun... Stay cool and keep watching...hopefully D & J will hook up next season!!! We'll keep praying they do, believe me!
It's very refreshing to see an old story revamped with modern day language that actually works. Not that this story is of the olden day Musketeers, the story follows the lives of D'Artagnans' son who he named D'Artagnan. Of course there is still a sense of the proper way to speak and women were treated like women, but there are a few modernizations in what they talk about. A lot of screenplay writers have tried many-a-time to revive the stories of The Musketeers and in my honest opinion have failed miserably. This series will succeed it's pre-decessus as it it fresh, charming and has a light comedic tone to it. It's nice to see Michael Ironside in yet another grand role and the fresh faces of Zak Santiago, Tobias Mehler, Karen Cliché, Mark Hildreth and another adventurer who I used to love in the show "Bing em Back Alive" (1982-1983) is Bruce Boxleitner. This show is a must see for lovers of The Musketeers.
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.

Watching this movie is sometimes like watching a train wreck. You want
to look away, but you just can't seem to. I would rather see Karen
Cliché still working on Mutant X, but I suppose you can't have
The "sexual tension" between D'Artagnan and Jacqueline seems really strained. At times, I wish Siroc would get his head out of his inventions and use that keen mind of his to realize that his friend Jacques is really a girl. Oy! I'm hoping for a second season to see if it gets better. I'm not sure I'm expecting it, but the final episode of Season 1 "Secrets" wasn't too bad.
If you can get past the low budget and occasionally problematic production quality then this ain't bad, not bad at all. In fact the acting is really interesting, almost unusual especially from the younger players. The wit and modern relevance in it reminds me of things like Buffy the Vampire Slayer but there is only one brief occult element here. Dammit, this thing has a personality and charm all of its own ! It made me laugh ... the Musketeers poetry and I thought the performance given by the actor who plays the young King was particularly amusing. Maybe there's more of this out there somewhere ? Why so serious guys ?
Frankly, I'm amazed it made it beyond one episode. I couldn't even make it through the first episode before I had to shut it off. Made by 5 year old children for other five year old children, I'm guessing. The acting is horrid beyond belief. What Bruce and Michael are doing here is beyond me. Obviously they couldn't get work elsewhere or they are total idiots for putting their names on this (but then they are 'actors' and actors are notoriously stupid). As to the 3 leading men, obviously they couldn't get work in the gay porn industry because they were all too ugly. And who in their right mind would believe Sheena Easton could even pretend to be a man! Please! If you enjoy BAD TV, then there is you're thing, I guess. They don't come much worse than this.
