I saw this pass by and I thought let's watch it. Its new, so lets try it. The story in my opinion is poorly written.

The " historical facts " that some claimed to be in there are just missing since it is a hollywood interpretation of how things "might have been" but as usual NOT substantiated by ANY historical evidence. I can pick the whole story apart purely on the misrepresentation of facts actions, society way back then etc.

Groping women,harming women, smacking women around... Is this really the best thing these " producers" can come up with? (about 20 min of seeing "women abused" isn't entertainment, it isn't even good "adventure", "drama" or fantasy)

For me this is just a VERY BAD imitation of game of thrones.

So is it all bad? No. Some actors DO have SOME potential but if the script is horrible, even a great actor can't make it look good.
