Trivia

The real John Simcoe was actually a beloved figure in Canada accomplishing many charitable civic acts, and was a staunch abolitionist, likely not at all the villainous sociopath as he was portrayed in the show. He actually did lead the Queen's York Rangers in the war, and went on to found the city of York which would later become Toronto. See more »

Goofs

Contrary to what is shown in the series Robert Rogers was not Scottish. Though he did lead troops for the British during the Revolutionary War Rogers was originally born in Massachusetts. See more »

A point of view from over the pond.
15 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I wasn't expecting too much from this despite the excellent trailers because, generally speaking, the Brits don't come across too good in ANY respect when it comes to the American portrayal of the War of Independence (Patriot for example)or in any other TV show for that matter.

As other posters have said, some productions would have you believe that the British were a force of occupation fighting against every American on the continent rather than the Maturing of a country no longer needing its parent to push it around.

Im delighted to say that, so far, this production bucks the trend and is actually seemingly fair handed to all belligerents and doesn't compel the viewer to focus on the 'Evil Brits' or 'Saintly Patriots' from a moralistic or even worse, a jingoistic, standpoint.

I feel as though I will actually enjoy this without the worry of having every British character being used as a disreputable, thieving, tyrannical Murderer that Hollywood and some US TV shows seem to delight in portraying....

Looking forward to more of the same...
