I've seen the previews. I'll tune in to see how it is.

Looks to have some potential. Thanks!

Outstanding book. The preview reveals a good cast. The costumes are excellent. And my Canadian wife will likely enjoy the Canadian focus. It's on my list.

This originated from a novel, outlined here on wikipedia.

I was not aware of the ultimate poor treatment of native Americans by the Canadian government, taking their children away to educate in government schools.

I am puzzled about the "deforestation." I understand that there are more trees growing today in NOrth American than there were before the first Europeans arrived.

I thought it was okay. I am intrigued enough to watch the next two episodes. That said, I generally lose interest in these type of shows after a couple of weeks.

I liked it enough to watch the rest of it.It helps that 17th cen.New France is my primary period of interest right now.Came along at the right time for me.

Halfway through so far, love it! Costumes, casting, plotting, performances, all too notch.

Watched the last 2 episodes and thought they were very good but left too many open ends.
