Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Greatly surprised...

Very little sex... but over all wonderful story telling...the incorporation of back stories is well done...little by little...explanations on how and why these young men became who they were...the swording was quite impressive...the amount of trading for a skill must have taken months...this group of men played perfectly off one another...dialogue was believable and flowed...the bad guys ( the cardinal, Rouchfort, etc ) were very believable and stirring...the king was almost sympathetic, if it wasn't for his arrogant stupidity...and the supporting cast added flavor, dimension and continuity...I would recommend this show to everyone...up till now...the man in the iron mask, was my favorite, but this show replaced it...I truly love period pieces, and this 3 season series has made me extremely grateful that I stumble across it...A movie with all 5hese elements would be a success...with the same actors...Good job BBC... looking forward to more surprises from this company...
