Storyline

The young blades are French royal 'musketeer' guards (despite the name sword-fighters, not sharpshooters) of the generation after the legendary, now knighted Gascon hero D'Artagnan and his three mentors. They include his son, now known as D'Artagnan, and his companions in arms, stationed in the Bastille, under captain Duvall's command: Siroc the erudite inventor and Ramon, a romantic, poetically gifted Spaniard who deserted the Habsburg camp, France's arch-rival. They are joined by a late musketeer's daughter Jaqueline, who masquerades (only D'Artagnan junior knows) as her imaginary brother Jacques (the real one being no good at fighting and fled to America), looking for revenge and glory. Louis XIII's son Louis XIV, the future Sun king, is now on the French throne although a mere boy, ruled in name by his vain and useless mother, Queen-regent Ann, and in fact by cardinal Richelieu's hand-picked, Italian-born successor, cardinal Mazarin. In this series, the power-hungry prime minister... Written by KGF Vissers

Jacqueline Roget: Is catching a palace spy so boring?
D'Artagnan: Waiting to catch one is. I know a game we can play to stay awake.
Jacqueline Roget: I know that game too. You're the *last* man on earth I'd play it with.
D'Artagnan: [smirks] You're the *only* man on earth I'd play it with.

"ALL FOR ONE"....oh sorry that's old school.
3 October 2006 | by xxbabyloogaxxSee all my reviews

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.
