I. Can't. Even.
No, seriously, I couldn't get through the pilot. I watch about 30 minutes before I gave up. I'm usually more patient and forgiving with new shows and open to giving it two episodes before I decide to ditch it. that was how I managed a half hour, but it was a painful half hour so I had to give up because I value my time more.
God knows I love Stephen Moyer, but no... not even he can get em to watch this.

This show really takes it's time to grow, & grow on the viewer. But I absolutely love it! By the 3rd episode I was definitely into it! Considering it's fiction, but based on real history is a great new idea. I like the characters, story line, & definitely all the twists & turns! As a history uff, this show really shows the gritty & violent times of the 14th century, complete with the start of the Catholic Church Inquisition. I really hope FX keeps this show going, it has such great potential!
When SideReel says the 10th episode as the series finale, is it because you think it will be cancelled? Or hoping it will be? I certainly hope not!

Ugh, I was hoping for so much more. Look, I have no problem with brutality, nudity, and I get downright excited about swords and dragons. However, except for the dragons, which possibly get a pass, all of this has to serve some higher purpose, some message, some ethos. Sorry, but vengeance alone doesn't cut it. Meh.

Introducing the new Jax Teller, medieval times version. Bastard Executioner has a mix of loss, revenge, romance, and magic? It takes a few episodes to get to its point, but the revenge plan, forbidden love, secret fake pregnancy and potential rebel allies - LOVE! It has the brutality of Spartacus, the addictive love-hate characters like SOA, and the plot wonders of Vikings. This series is harshly named and that could turn off potential viewers, though I hope it doesn't because we are really liking how it's progressing!

So far into couple of episodes, it hasn't been disappointing. If it continues it is becoming among my favorite ones. Intriguing story line and characters. Although I feel Stephen Moyer's character is not settling for me... He seems out of place in this character.
I love love love the theme song. I normally skip/fastforward the introduction but not on this one. I let it roll and listen to it all...
Almost end of the season and still one of my favorite shows on top. it really upset me that they decided to cancel the show, however, to be honest I doubt they can spin the next season to be still fresh and interesting without falling for the mistakes most shows fall for (the regular love or revenge story, small ruling area is hard to spin stories)
I am so sad that it concluded and I didn't know until I saw it on my concluded list :( (I was looking forward for next season)

A lot of untapped potential; sad to see it cancelled.
