Audience Reviews for Jamestown: Season 1

  • Feb 06, 2021
    Seems impressed with itself. acting is passable, but storyline, especially women's roles, is poor. appears as a prime-time soap.
  • Dec 18, 2020
    Absolutely stunning. This script is brilliantly written. If you read the critical reviews these are more dependable than audience ratings.

    Watching this as a US citizen and having grown up under an educational system that pretty much operates as if History started with Jamestown I could not suspend my disbelief at the creative liberties (or corners cut maybe) in terms of character dialogue, motivations, etc. The show seems to be making a valiant effort at imitating "girl power" & "feminism" in their storyline but ironically; without really putting any work into considering how the women at the time may have ACTUALLY attempted to subvert male dominance and sexism in the colony. Was not surprised to see that the only writing credit on IMDB went to one dude. The female dialogue of the show seemed to be someones best impression of what a strong woman sounds like and fails to understand why that isn't enough to make her more than 2-Dimensional. That said. Technical aspects of the show are beautiful. Make-up is beautiful, landscape is beautiful, camera framing and shots are spot on. I feel bad for the rest of the crew the writer didn't have as much heart in the project or the message of the show as the rest of them. Worth watching simply to marvel in awe that networks outside of lifetime in 2020 are still willing to throw $$$ at these thinly veiled gimmicky fluff pieces trying to pass off harlequin romance as a progressive and empowering storyline when theres sooooo many talented people with real POV trying to get discovered

    Great acting but it would be more interesting if they delved into the history instead of the weird dynamics between men and women. Love Verity and Meredith, they seem to be the most real couple. Alice seems like she lives in a bubble. Would give it more stars except for the way they write it to make the men under the spell of women who only have to withhold their favors to get what they want and women who just blabber every secret they know.

    this is a garbage series, what a mess of information.
  • Oct 25, 2018
    Garbage. Seems to be a watery copy of movies made for Netflix. Can't believe this is by the producers of Downton Abbey. Horrible actors, costumes, story line. Not worth the time.
