Excellent Historical Play
15 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

Still there're some little problems look funny to me, like people live Song Dynasty used to call their country the Song Empire, some administration staff were actually wearing clothes from the hundreds of years later's Ming Dynasty. And Chinese people, even including Mongolians, never call others' names directly because they have a alternative name like the middle name of Americans, only in extremely official occasions would they do that.

But it really surprised me when I watched the first episode. As a Chinese, I felt like I was watching some Chinese TV play before the actors started speaking English. Those people did a good job to reappear all the ancient Asian style stuff. I could say it's the best TV play I've seen this year. My college friends love it too. Really intense and enjoyable!
