BBC's The Musketeers

With both rusty_armour and greenhoodloxley praising The Musketeers, I thought I'd give the series another chance. I decided to leave episode 1 and go straight on to episode 2. I've just watched all the epsiodes in an evening and a morning and enjoyed them. I particularly like Athos and Aramis, the Queen and King Louis. The action is varied and exciting. At times the series comes across as a 17th C Western.

The show doesn't have the best writing in the world, but I think it's fun. Of course, I'm usually a sucker for a bit of swash and buckle. *g*

I have to admit that I pretty much watch it for Treville and Athos. I do like the premise, though. And I think it's great that we get to see a bit of life in the Musketeers barracks and some palace intrigue. Oh, and I agree with you about it coming across as a 17th century Western.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the series. I'll be watching the fifth episode tonight. :-)

It's not great drama, but it's fun, as you say. I think the swash and buckle is pretty good!
