The Musketeers: Season 1 Reviews

November 20, 2019
The series was shot in Prague, and it should be gorgeous to look at, but instead, it's oddly gray and murky. The plot, involving truth, justice and the creation of modern France, is equally murky.

What gives this new and notably updated British version of the classic tale its best kick, though, is the characterization of the four swashbucklers at the heart of it.

Old-fashioned it may be in spirit, but this adventure tale is nothing if not exciting.

The fights were good, the women were comely and the production values high.

It's a hoot but also a bit hortatory.

This swashbuckling romp will appeal to teenagers dreaming of adventure -- and forty-something TV critics too

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 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.
