Trivia

The guillotine referred to in the series is actually "The Maiden," a Scottish beheading machine. Victims faced up, toward the blade. The Maiden was used from 1564 until 1710, for more than 150 executions. France began using the guillotine in 1789. See more »

Goofs

In a few episodes, characters say"OK." An American term that didn't come into use until the 19th Century. See more »

Crazy Credits

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 »

Loved the Books, Love the Show

Rather than recount their differences, I'd say the the source material was adapted very well. An excellent cast makes it work for them. I've read all the published novels and short stories, and it made me happy to see it brought to life to screen without any major letdowns, no big disappointments.
