Trivia

The real John Simcoe was actually a beloved figure in Canada accomplishing many charitable civic acts, and was a staunch abolitionist, likely not at all the villainous sociopath as he was portrayed in the show. He actually did lead the Queen's York Rangers in the war, and went on to found the city of York which would later become Toronto. See more »

Goofs

Contrary to what is shown in the series Robert Rogers was not Scottish. Though he did lead troops for the British during the Revolutionary War Rogers was originally born in Massachusetts. See more »

You have to know history, but other then that it's amazing
16 April 2014 | by Zachary LaneSee all my reviews

Yes, the acting could be better, but how TURN takes a different viewpoint on American history is extremely charming. It's about American spies and based on one of the many books about Washington's Six, but other than little historical inaccuracies it's a great show. Still, in order to enjoy this show you have to know a good amount about Revolutionary War history before you can absorb the full effect, yes the soap opera aspect is there and not exactly important, but some people need some love story to keep watching. Overall, TURN is well made and it's a great show for history buffs or just people who enjoy learning about untold history.
