The Musketeers: Season 1 (2014)
Friend Ratings for The Musketeers: Season 1
Even viewers who are just now meeting [Dumas'] iconic foursome will have some difficulties with this uneven BBC adaptation that begins with an overly complicated backstory and fails to fully make up for it with compelling characters and must-see action.
Refreshingly realistic in some ways (there is much jumping out of high windows, but the jumper is often actually injured) and soothingly romantic in others, The Musketeers is a captivating balance of spectacle and story
The Musketeers ride again. But this swash buckles in all the wrong places.
The adventure is good, the characters are better than good, and the playful, often insulting repartee is someting you might hear from college buddies on holiday in Cabo. These Musketeers are worth a bite.
Some of the plot machinations are more than a little far-fetched. But none are fatal to the overall thrust of a series that turns out to be much more than a series of romps and flirtations.
This positively gleeful adaptation of the inseparable trio and brash newcomer D'Artagnan lives in the sweet spot between the original figures and what, over time, their legacy has become.
The Musketeers may not be either the greatest treatment of the Dumas tale or the most revolutionary, but it is fun for all, and all for fun.
