One of the best Original Series
18 December 2014 | by sultan-salmanSee all my reviews

This is an excellent production, everything about this series is great, from story line to direction, acting, locations and production. I loved historical movies and one of my all time favorite was "Braveheart" and watching this series made my day. Cant wait for season 2. I challenged to those who say that it is bad, because they simply don't know. All the characters fits their role, Specially Benedict Wong as Kublai Khan and Tom Wu as hundred eyes and Marco Polo. Polo, played by Italian actor Lorenzo Richelmy, is abandoned by his father in a foreign land where he makes an enemy of a sneering prince while also catching the eye of a fair maiden. And how does does he become the target of both jealously and love? By simply existing as a handsome outsider who doesn't directly want to bother anyone. So trouble in various forms find Polo without him actively looking for conflict.
