Now we've got something!
22 July 2020 | by acking3See all my reviews

Like many other reviewers I was frustrated with this series. There were many things that I liked about it, especially the cast. I also liked the look of it, it seemed to capture the feel of the time period. But, it just didn't appear to be getting to a "point". To me the story was adrift.

However; based on episode 5 we seem to be finally getting somewhere. The foundation is built, now they can start building the structure of the series. I now believe this series is going to be really good. Matthew Rhys is going to nail this role just like most of us thought he would. I am a big fan of Burr's Mason and, I am glad this is different and not just a copy or parody. This is a totally different animal and, that's a good thing.
