      Season 2 – TURN: Washington's Spies

      2015 History Drama List
      90% 10 Reviews Tomatometer 97% 100+ Ratings Audience Score After scoring a hit with a series set in the 1960s, AMC travels much further back in time for "TURN: Washington's Spies," a Revolutionary War-era drama based on the same-named Alexander Rose novel. The series goes beyond the battlefront to a conflict involving everyday men and women, taking place in a cryptic world of double agents, covert operations and code-breaking. It revolves around Abe Woodhull, a young farmer torn between loyalty to his Tory background and respect for those who fight for the Patriot cause. Living on British-occupied Long Island, Abe joins a group of his childhood friends to form what becomes known as the Culper Ring, a spy network charged with sniffing out British military strategy. Under the direction of Gen. Washington, Abe and his fellow agents help turn the war to the Continentals' favor, and their daring efforts ultimately serve as the foundation for modern espionage.

      Previous Neil Genzlinger New York Times As lavish and well acted as ever and promising more intricate intrigues. Dec 7, 2018 Full Review Jeff Labrecque Entertainment Weekly 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 Verne Gay Newsday This remains an intelligent, well-made drama that wants to get most of the history right, or at least not adulterate it too much. B Apr 14, 2015 Full Review Ryan Sandoval TV.com 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 Samantha Kaye TV Equals Season 2 is leaps and bounds better. The main reason is an expansion of scope. Dec 7, 2018 Full Review J.L Bell Den of Geek 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. 4/5 Dec 7, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews Next

      Previous Audience Member A.MAZING. I never would have imagined how a film series could trigger in me such an intense interest and respect of that historical time. Brilliant. Also, the incredibly well written and strong female characters were what got me ..and kept me. Loved every minute of it!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Jamie Bell is astonishing and the other main actors all work their level best in nuanced quieter moments or terror raising battle and fight sequences. Have enjoyed it all despite the increasing tensions of the characters' turmoils, have read up more on my American history, and most importantly appreciate more than ever my generation's inheritance of the chaotic, heroic, suffering and transcending decisions and consequences of our early American forefathers and patriots roles in birthing this nation. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Turn really picks up in season 2. Authentic uniforms and terminology as in S1. And I started to connect with the characters here. Maj. Hewlett and André really are favourites of mine. The casting is brilliant. I have no complaints. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member George Washington is losing his mind..? Major Hewlett is a prisoner and showing his bucket of crap, that he thinks is Anna, all of the constellations view. Same narrative as seaon one where the "bad guys" are invincible. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member keeps gettting more intense. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member No complaints from me, still watching.
