This remains an intelligent, well-made drama that wants to get most of the history right, or at least not adulterate it too much.

I appreciate the care Turn is taking to show how a war is made up of people with varying degrees of heroism and evilness.

Season 2 is leaps and bounds better. The main reason is an expansion of scope.

The production design is even more handsome. The CGI-enhanced scenes of New York and its harbor are particularly striking... And most of the performances remain entertaining in their arch way.

Turn is back with a new subtitle, a generally quicker pace, and a greater sense of mission.
