Critic Reviews for Turn: Washington's Spies Season 2

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

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.

Dec 7, 2018 | Full Review…

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

Dec 7, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Dec 7, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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

Apr 14, 2015 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

As lavish and well acted as ever and promising more intricate intrigues.

Dec 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Abe isn't exactly a Revolutionary 007, but Turn has a few villains that would make Ian Fleming proud -- except for being Brits, of course.

Dec 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Turn could become a far more fun show in its second season thanks to the appearance of Owain Yeoman as Benedict Arnold, a character that best represents Turn's opportunity to turn foregone conclusions into riveting television.

Even the accents... promote the sense that we are peeking behind the curtain of life as it really happened, not watching another gimcrack re-creation of the bandaged head, flute and limp sort.

Apr 14, 2015 | Full Review…

Despite unflinching bursts of violence... the suspense is tempered by the setting and a realization how long the war will drag on, transforming some of the caper aspects into Mission: Impossible (the series, not the movies) in powered wigs and red coats.

Audience Reviews for Turn: Washington's Spies: Season 2

The second season continues to impress, with storylines that are intricately woven with real historical facts and inventive drama. It's a season of compelling characters, fantastically rendered episodes, and an enthralling sense of entertainment. The best new series of the last two years.
