I Suppose I Could Try A Few Episodes



Are you freakin' kidding me. A whole new cool looking Three Musketeers show from the BBC for me to watch? Could this be my next Black Sails?  Doctor Who as Cardinal Richelieu? I am there. I have often said that if I could live in one period of history I would choose to be a Musketeer because after all, I am a King's Man at heart. Plus I like the idea of carrying a sword in public.

The 1974 movie and it's infamous sequel were staples at the movie theatre on the military bases where I grew up. I have watched them a dozen times each. Oliver Reed and Michael York? Forget about it. It was also one of the first movies I 'taped' off PAY TV when that became all the rage. No commercials. Just like in the theatre but in my own home. Who would have ever thunk it?

Looks like a maybe, watched the trailer with the sound muted. BBC does crank out some good stuff.

I watched about 4 or 5 episodes but got bored. Like Robin Hood, the Musketeers are characters with a very limited range of stories to tell. There's only so much swashbuckling, chases, captures and escapes I can watch without reaching for the remote control...

I'd only watch them if the Musketeers were gay. Now THAT would be interesting.

What if they were bicurious?

Close enough.
