Did You Know?


Peter Eggers (Johan Gustav Dåådh) and Joel Spira (Simon Freund) both sport a highly anachronistic 3-day stubble throughout, whilst the others are thoroughly shaved. They maintain this look, every day even if it would have been hard to look so unkempt, as they're beards do not grow. Some other things as depicting most poor people as dirty even at nighttime is absolutely wrong. Most people bathed weekly, and all washed daily. People in dirty lines of work would bathe daily after work. See more »

Qualtiy Entertainment
6 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Compared to what passes for a quality TV series on broadcast TV in the states, Anno 1790 is one of my few viewing enjoyments. As a person who is homebound and financially challenged(can't afford cable,satellite,etc.),Anno 1790 and the other international mystery series from MHz save my otherwise very isolated life. I just wish they would continue the Anno series and add a season 2!

Since I am required to have 10 lines of text I will comment on the show:

1. The show is realistic to the era in it's costume and design. It's good to see a TV series with an historic setting actually create authentic portrayals. The characters in Anno 1790 all have disheveled, greasy hair, which I find relieving. I hate watching period pieces set in the 18th and 19th centuries with the character's hair in a clean, nice coif when you know that even for the upper classes bathing and soap was a luxury.

2. I Like the political underpinnings of the show. In the states no one talks about a "class" driven, hierarchical society(except maybe the Occupy Movment) ---yet there is one. I feel the show does a good job of portraying the brutality of classism, sexism, etc.

3. The acting is generally good. I agree with the previous review that Peter Eggers is OK and the rest of the cast is strong, esp. in the development of strong women characters.
