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

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

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.

April 14, 2015 | Rating: 8.5/10 | 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.

April 14, 2015 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

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.
