Watched the pilot of this already. It's a very surprising take on a period piece. I found it generally enjoyable. Looks like all the episodes are already available and reviews highlight this as a surprisingly good show.
Rotten Tomatoes: 83%
Metacritic: 68%

Seen episode one so far and I’m enjoying it more than I expected I would!

I just watched episode 4. I wish the description of the episode didn't spoil who was playing Thoreau, but he was fantastic. I'm loving this show more with each episode.

Just got around to watching the premiere of this. Another mega-high quality show. Super intriguing and lots of style. PQ is also off the charts. The kind of dark scenes where any other streaming service would be crippled with artefacts, smearing and banding.

Apple TV+ continues to impress!

I tried watching episode one but turned it off after 30 minutes. I love period piece content, but this doesn’t one I did not like.

It's a 30 minute show... so... and I actually quite like this one...

It seems more like "A Knight's Tale"(2001) where the period piece has modern music and language.

I thought it was okay, but seemed like they were "trying too hard"...
You are exactly right. It does seem that they’re trying too hard.

If you turned it off after 30 minutes, you watched all of it.
Lol. Ok, then I guess I turned it off after 15 minutes!

Who ever created the promo for the show needs to be fired. judging from that alone, I would say the show was ****. But actually it’s really really good. I was impressed. Glad I gave it a chance. Can’t wait for season two.

I'm very much into this show now. Up to episode 7. Totally unique and very entertaining. Surprisingly complex characters once it gets going.

8/10 - highly recommended :cool:
