      Previous Audience Member this show could be very interesting due to the time period, but it didn't have a high quality writer as the downton abbey had. it also didn't have any attractive male actors. the main male character doesn't have a sexy body, i don't know why they keep showing him almost naked. some of the story doesn't make sense, such as in season 1, Mr. whealon got beaten up by the prisoner. the old lady was really memorable for what she played on tv. the costume, the time period were all interesting, the weakest point is the story itself. i was hoping to see season 3, too bad, it got canceled. Ps: since the other big site stopped its forum completely, therefore, i am now writing reviews on here because this site still has forums. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review christina o I had forgotten how absorbing this show is!! Beautifully filmed, intricate plotting, interesting characters. All in all just a very engaging show- congrats PBS!!
