Well done series with some good acting and drama, battles, subterfuge, scheming. It is a series so no one would expect it to be historically accurate, I dont understand all the one stars for that. What series based on history is like that. It isn't a propoganda piece and doesn't feel forced. Take it for what it is a well made period drama about an era that isnnot usually represented.
