Very high production values and great acting don't save what ultimately is somewhat boring to watch. How many extreme closeups of Tom Hardy's face can one show have? The dreariness and darkness eventually take their toll. The writing is loose and the story is hard to follow at times. This might have made a great two hour movie for a whole series? I held out to the end but I am not sure I should have. I am going to have think about whether Season 2 is worth the time and effort. For anyone who really liked this...I am happy that it worked out. I had hoped it would for me too.

This is a very interesting take on the colonization of North America by the Governments of U.S. and England. This series has everything in it, and all of it is very well done. As usual Tom Hardy excels at all he does.

Loved it right from the start. Tom Hardy draws you in with his dark and violent character. There are other really interesting characters that I was drawn to also. I can't wait for season two. If you liked Peaky Blinders you will love this one.

Excellent, compelling series. Looking forward to Season 2.
Tom Hardy not only great actor....but he co wrote this series.

As a Tom Hardy fan, this was an exciting, dark drama filled with rich, powerful men scheming and enacting plots to out maneuver one another for the upper hand, in this particular case dealing with international trade. There is an added supernatural element at play that adds a little something extra to the cat and mouse game being played among powerful trading companies, the British empire, and a fledgling little upstart nation known as the United States. Weapons, spies, and duels included.
