Angered by their inaction, the two women decide to fund a ship for themselves. Written by Aaron Kyle

Did You Know?


The doctor says he'll give a sailor suffering from a headache a shot of Mandragora. Mandragora plants, better known as mandrakes, contain several active tropane alkaloids including hyoscyamine, hyoscine, cuscohygrine, apoatropine and belladonnine. While all of these substances are known today to be very toxic they used to be used in traditional medicine. They were used for a number of different things including as a emetic (induced vomiting), sedative and a painkiller but are no longer used due to its toxic effects. Common side effects of these substances are blurred vision, dilation of the pupils, dryness of the mouth, difficulty in urinating, dizziness, headache, vomiting, blushing, rapid heart rate and hallucinations. For these reasons Mandragora fell out of use as a sedative and a painkiller in the mid 19th century after morphine was discovered to have far better analgesic properties and to be much safer.

Ep 3 = Unneccessay and Dissapointing - UGH
15 April 2018 | by Colonial-OakSee all my reviews

WTF happened ???

All was good with THE TERROR until this episode. Its a severe deviation from the horror theme, more focused on displaying brutal 19th Century naval punishments, resulting in unnecessarily bare-assed naked men getting whipped on their backs and buttocks ...

No TERROR, no monster, no suspense, just filler side-story crap that has np bearing on the story ... the whole episode was pointless and a waste of time ...

If you are streaming THE TERROR after their initial presentation date, skip Episode 3, go straight to Ep 4 ...

For those of us watching it "live" on each Episode presentation dates, lets hope the rest of the season does not continue to deteriorate like Ep 3 ...
