I love this show, it is so entertaining and the acting is just wonderful, so fresh and rewarding to be able to sit and watch something that is loosely based on History, and yet keep's you drawn to the screen to see what he does next. I love it and want to see much more of it and more shows like it too. My he is such a ladies man and so into himself, its just too funny by times. You really must take a look at this one, it is great.

So far, its really slow, like a tv movie of the week. Hoping it gets more exciting as he makes it to the US and Perimeter Institute. The flashback flashforward is mostly unneccesary imo, though I can understand why they did it that way as it would have been amazingly slow to start at the beginning and progress linearly through his life. The opening scene is... {ahem}... revealing. UPDATE: I have now watched the first season up until episode 6. Although the first show bounced around in his timeline between the 1930s and the 1890s, which was annoying, the first half of the season is firmly in the 1890s to 1905 time range, which made it a solid show with a great deal of historical significance. I had known about his first wife and how she basically got screwed in every sense of the word, but it was good to see the show address the events in a dramatized but likely near factual manner. I've upgraded my rating to 4 stars.
