  • Simcoe! Put an end to this madness

    1.0
    It is difficult to watch a show when the only redeeming feature is a homicidal maniac who, with the right opportunity, might put an end to the whole sordid mess.



    This show gives only the faintest nod to the historical reality on which it is thinly based. I understand the writers have to do something to create dramatic conflict but it seems as if their episodes were contrived by writers high on flakka.



    I could cite many instances, but the contrivance of the document purloined by a spy in King George's court was essential to bringing the French to our side is preposterous. As if the French did not have spies and intelligence service of their own, but needed the Revolutionaries to provide them a raison de guerre. Hitchcock would have called this the something made up from whole cloth for the characters to fight over.



    There was drama enough in real events, but rather than do original research on the subject the writers just make up "history" as they go along. We turned the program off last night a quarter of the way through with hopes that Simcoe will wipe everyone out and put an end to this travesty.moreless
  • War without a clearcut good guys vs bad guys.

    Fans of war movies and of history have it all in this unknown part spies played in the Rev. War. I'm sick of WWII and Civil War movies all the time. This was our most important war since it changed the world.

    I like the way it shows how conflicted the ordinary people were as they wanted to be on the winning side so as not to lose their homes and livelihoods.moreless
  • Turn is one of my favorite shows

    9.5
    I don't understand what it might not get renewed, maybe the producers need a better publicist.



    I love the show and look forward to watching it.

    Based on true events this has a great story line and character development. Let there be more shows with this weaving of stunning plots and chivalry and great actors.

    Turn: Washington's Spies Season 2 Premiere Review: Give This Show Another Shot

    The period drama's double-hitter of a Season 2 premiere, “Thoughts of a Free Man” and “Hard Boiled,” was a solid two-parter.
