Trivia

This show is the second time Kevin McNally has portrayed a man in the American Revolution. The first time was in Assassin's Creed III(2012) as a sailor named Robert Faulkner who aided the main protagonist in naval battles. This also makes it the third time he has portrayed someone from the 18th century. The first of three being Gibbs in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. See more »

A point of view from over the pond.
15 April 2014 | by 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...
