News & Interviews for Turn: Washington's Spies: Season 2
This remains an intelligent, well-made drama that wants to get most of the history right, or at least not adulterate it too much.
Turn is back with a new subtitle, a generally quicker pace, and a greater sense of mission.
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.
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.
