Storyline

New Worlds is a gripping story of love, loss and the human price paid for the freedoms and liberties we enjoy today. We follow the fortunes of four young people - Beth, Hope, Abe and Ned - from across both sides of the Atlantic, caught up in these turbulent times. We see them struggle as they are torn between love and ideals in the harsh reality of the changing world. In England, the restored monarchy of Charles II has betrayed its promises and reverted to tyranny. Behind the decadence of the Court, a terror machine is repressing the freedoms won for the people with so much blood during the Civil War of England when Charles I was executed. In America, the tentacles of state terror reach the English colonists of New England who are struggling to throw off the shackles of the English Crown. At the same time the colonists are ruthlessly staking their claim to the territories occupied by the Native American Indians, and shedding much of the American Indian's blood in the process - in a ...

some fine TV entertainment
8 April 2018 | by dragokinSee all my reviews

New Worlds won't keep you on the edge of your seat, yet it might be a fine pastime during a coupe of hours.

I wouldn't discuss the historical accuracy of New Worlds since i've perceived it as an adventure without the ambition to describe the era. So we're moving from Old World to New World and follow several interesting characters.

There were moments, though, where i wasn't particularly amused. For example the family in England raising their daughters liberally, albeit in a new age commune style. Then there was inverse Pocahontas story of sorts...

But i'm complaining too much about a show which was nice although far from being great.
