I recently finished Marco Polo, the new Netflix series. I enjoyed the first season. While I thought that it lacked in some areas, none of those areas detracted from the story for me. It moved along smoothly and felt very authentic.
Maybe I benefited from not having watched other “similar” titles. Game Of Thrones and such were not really a huge draw although I may go back to them having seen this.
Forbes gave an unfavorable review.
I do not agree with them on their critique, but it is true that the end result will be in dollars and cents. I think that the strategy is forward thinking and will likely change the game. With the Ridley Scott film, “Exodus: Gods And Kings”, recent Idris Elba as James Bond clamor among other events, the road into 2015 will certainly lead to new territory.
