    what would you consider a good show?

    Indeed. Looked promising at first, but I eventually bailed out on this show after about episode 5...

    - Lorna Bow is very likely to be a romantic interest. They are basically husband and wife (and she cares for him, deeply)

    -I think the Chemist will die during or after the trip to america. There's no way that he'll be covered in scar tissue for S2.

    -Most of the characters on the ship are not very interesting- S2 should have a lot of new ones.

    There was a great deal of build-up. When Winter was murdered it was, to me, quite a shock.

    I expect next season will be more straight-forward. Given the gritty, historic feel to it, I am very interested in the coming season. Certainly the East India Company will not walk away...

Since fully half the cast of the first season has met their demise, and Delaney et. al. are sailing to west, eventually to Vancouver Is., under the stars & stripes, I figure there are some prime vacancies to be filled. OK, there will be more Americans (who didn't do all that well in the finale either), but we're also talking FN folks, Canadians, perhaps a Canadien or two, maybe some HBC after all ... hey, it'll start looking like home - like Ann of Green Gables!

    Gritty and realistic in a way that is difficult for Hollywood to bring to the screen. That alone makes it worth watching.

    By all accounts though, the ending will make the American liberals happy, especially as the nasty evil redcoats are slaughtered, the Prince of Wales is even more redder with rage and with the East India Company, is left peerless untill the advent of Hitler, the Nazi's and Theresa May.

    I feel sorry for you if you, Jennie and Denis if you stayed with it.

    Seriously? I'm gonna stay with it, for now anyway. No pity please, I hate that.

    Decent.

    Copious violence, a lot of loose ends tied up, and a new chapter clearly marked.

I forgot Trump and Netanyahu, I do apologise!
