Amusing Celtic romp.
21 January 2018 | by pixiegirl44See all my reviews

I've read some of the ridiculous negative reviews on here and just want to scream with frustration. Britannia is not meant to be factually accurate or historically precise. It's a tongue firmly in cheek romp through Celtic Britain. The characters are either evil or hilarious with Zoe Wannamaker having some of the best one liners. Surely, anyone can see it's not meant to be taken seriously, especially after seeing Veran and Divis play their parts like characters out of a play that a stoned Shakespeare might have written. It's a fantasy epic with great characters and scenery and a perfect title song by Donovan. The song alone should tell you that you should just go with the flow and have a laugh,something a lot of reviewers surely need, along with a few beers and a good lay. They've totally missed the point. Don't let it put you off. I'm really looking forward to another season. It's not game of thrones but it's never claimed to be.
