Historically accurate with a great story line and acting.
This is a great series, historically pretty accurate and the acting is superb so far (just finished the first year).
My only complaint is partially my own fault. The day I ordered the series I had put into the search "lowest cost of series and shipping in "blu ray".. This came up and I ordered it on that basis, but I did not re-check and this listing came up with the "blu ray" parameter I set BUT, I didn't check until it was delivered to double check and guess what, it is in standard DVD. Since it actually shows very well and I have never watched a series twice, and once I finish I will probably give it to one of my grandchildren* old enough for an (R) rated video. Whatever format you may buy this series in, I heartily recommend it. I have enjoyed so called "costume epics " since the 50's - this is definitely one of the best.
*Change that to great grandchildren - all of the grandchildren are adults now - damn, I am getting old!Read full review
