A diamond in the ruff
When I saw the first episode the show seemed a little off to me, all the elements where there but the story line was a bit askew, but then I realized that they wanted it that way to open up the storyline for the long haul and ALL of the musketeers adventures. Bearing that in mind it was a very pleasant series.
D'artagnan seems to be a lot more gruff in this version, compared to the brazen but fun loving one in all the other variations. It has the upside of making his fights seem more life and death. As far as the other musketeers go they actually do a really great job of playing off of one another the entire time which makes them seem a lot less divided then in say the movies.
Overall I think once this show really gets going everyone is going to see how much better it is.
