Trivia

Although depicted in higher action and exaggeration, Marco Polo did in fact take many aspects from a Mongol-conquered China. Yet during the Yuan Dynasty (when China was one of the 4 Khanates and was ruled by Kublai, Genghis Khan's grandson) he didn't engage in many of the epic action sequences as seen throughout the show. In fact, Kublai Khan welcomed people like Marco Polo. Merchants and scholars were welcomed and no longer seen as low scum as they previously were seen by Confucian bureaucrats. See more »

The show has so much potential and love it :)
14 December 2014 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

Firstly, I am very interested in show since I saw first trailer. It was an impressive trailer. Especially Mongolia Empire is always interested for me. First episode's processing and storytelling were very well. Also characters and environment is magical.

In addition main theme is not only Marco Polo and actions but also political atmosphere, wars between Chinese and Mongolia Empire. Also there is an dilemma about what Kublai Khan is, because even though Kublai Khan is seem to depend Mongolia Customs, he has been described like Chinese Emperor. Actually it is little bit disturb me but I think it is make sense, because kings, khans who place chine to conquer were always assimilated.

Compare to other historical and biographical shows like Da Vinci Demons, Vikings, Black Sails, Spartacus, Rome; Marco Polo is first historical show attempt of Netflix and I think it is as good as others. I almost followed all historical TV series except Reign, I've really loved that show. Also in my opinion next seasons show will be improve itself, because scope of TV show is not just Mongolia Empire but also all place and civilizations on silk road

As a result of these, I've always liked epic/ historical TV shows like Rome, Spartacus, Da Vinci Demons, Vikings, and because of the fact that I believe that show has so much potential, I rate it 9 :)
