Confusing and dense, Thieves Of The Wood has fine performances but such a muddled story that you'll likely fall asleep before the end of the first episode.

Audience Reviews for Thieves of the Wood: Season 1

    Excellent tv show. I have seen a lot of negative comments about this show, but the sad part is they never had the patience to watch the whole thing, just saw bits and pieces and judged the show. I'll say this right now if you don't have a love for history and know what these people went through then you'll never truly understand. I also dare say if you had just watched the whole show you definitely would have understand what was going on. I'll narrow it down for you if you decide to watch the whole thing in it's entirety. The story is about hope, love, freedom and having the will to fight against corruption, injustice, and greed. The Belgium people were being oppressed, mistreated and punished severely for small infractions, failing to pay the outrageous taxes, and stealing food to survive. One man comes back home from a war with his own battle scars that no one understood so he just made up a story so people wouldn't know the horrors he endured, but this in turn would be dangerous and cause pain and loss for him. This man was a genius and he stir the people to fight for themselves and to take back what was theirs and to never bow before a tyrant again. No matter the suffering, pain and loss you can't ever give in to the cruel injustices always fight back and teach those that come after you to be true, kind and to have hope. This tv show will have you in tears but it's well worth watching. Hopefully this review will change your mind and you'll be willing to watch.

    Tried very hard, several times to at least complete an episode but couldn't get past the half way line.

    I could not stop watching this!

    Episodes are slow and boring...hugely overhyped in Belgium

    It has fantastic costume and scenery. Actors are exceptional. Storyline is weak. May portray what life was like in the 1700s. Seems several stories going on. A bit confusing, jumps a lot. Not sure what the main characters goal is through this series.

    This show is awesome, I love the historic feel, the politics, the characters are relatable with endearing qualities but also flawed, it's down and dirty with shock and awe. There's something for everyone. While critics may have a different opinion or perspective, I found it to be an excellent show as an at home viewer. I hope season 2 pulls through - Bravo Netflix!

    Knowing the History and Lore of Flanders helps as you venture into this dirty series about a Flemish Folkhero. Doesn't go where you would expect. Definitely not a romantic take on 18th century life in Belgium. English Dub was surprisingly good.

    Dont know if this is based on a real story, but it is a god damn excellent period piece.
