The opening song changes from season to season to reflect what's happening in the story line. In the first half of Season 2 (which is set in France), part of the lyrics are in French. In the second half of Season 2 (which is mostly about preparing for war), there is a militaristic drum roll added to the opening song. During Season 3, there are tribal drums added because much of the season is set in the West Indies. In Season 4, bluegrass fiddle and banjos are added, plus some of the lyrics are sung with a Southern accent because the season is set mostly in America. See more »
I loved the first two seasons and the 3rd season was still fine. But all started going downhill in 4th and 5th seasons.
Not gonna lie but I feel like Sophie Skelton was not meant to play Brianna. Same with Richard rankin. They didn't feel like the characters. Instead I actually felt like they were trying to become the characters but failed miserably.
There were timeS when everyone did quite a performance in this series but I felt like in was lacking in these two. Especially Sophie Skelton (Brianna).
I love Lauren Lyle and her acting is immaculate. I feel like she's under appreciated. She needs more hype. Marsali is such a badass.
