Re: The Musketeers - BBC 2014 Adaptation.

I've seen the two episodes now and i'm impressed.. it shows that Hollywood is not the only place capable of making good TV shows.

I love the original book and as i have said i love the 70s all star cast Musketeer movies and this show shapes up to be quite entertaining.

High production values (it helps when you can film in Europe where there's an abundance of old castles, fortressess and caverns), good cast and good humor and above all good fights.

Really looking forward to the rest of the episodes.

Re: The Musketeers - BBC 2014 Adaptation.

You'd have to wonder for what reason the UK would deny US Distribution?

^ I don't think the idea is that BBC UK would deny distribution but more of does BBC America want it.

Re: The Musketeers - BBC 2014 Adaptation.

Given that the end card aside from saying BBC, says BBC America and BBC Worldwide. So I would hazard a guess that BBC America might have co-finaced it.

But episode 3 is over and it does have a familiar face for Sci-Fi fans James Callis.

Who chews the scenery outrageously, doing his best vocal impression of Lord Flash from Blackadder...

was a little bit gruff wasn't he!

For me I can never quite get past him as Bridget Jones' gay best friend

Another good episode, and they've explained about Athos/Milady, glad we didn't have to wait weeks to find out the history there.

Frankly I nearly gave up when they started with Mrs Baltar holding a flintlock side-on, gangsta-style. As if that pose isn't stupid enough normally...

Re: The Musketeers - BBC 2014 Adaptation.

Whoa that last episode was really good, finally Capaldi gets to show what he can do, and I love that even when the show focuses on just one or two of the Musketeers the others always get something to do. Love all the political intrigue, for a while there I felt like I was watching Game of Thrones...though obviously with a lot less violence!

Lost me last week, decided to cancel my series link. I thought the bit in Weekly Wipe was spot on.

Re: The Musketeers - BBC 2014 Adaptation.

They are not following through.

Reset button.

Grand adventure out of no where after a massive series of coincidences where someone meets an old friend who needs help.

And repeat until series end.

This is how I remember every other classic Knight Rider Adventure to be.

Bah!

Well you can watch it here. The link is supposed to take you right the bit where they start talking about it.

But personally I just think it's so generic and bland it doesn't draw me in.
