    Even though I'm not a fan of period pieces, I can't help but love this show. Everything about it simply excellent. Excellent storytelling, Compelling characters. Great acting and dialogue. The sets and costume are perfect. It has battles, romance, political intrigue, love and loss, compelling relationships, and so much more. It'll make you laugh, cry, cheer, hate, and admire the stunning compelling protagonist, among others. I can't recommend this show enough.

    This is good, if not great, TV. It is epic in scope, yet zooms in to what characters are going through, their struggles and toil, failings and triumphs. Many compare this to Vikings, but that show feels short-sighted, limited. Also, you can trust that Bernard Cornwell did his research, and sticks to history as close as possible.
