Not worth watching
Poor writing poor acting
Doesn't know what it is- not worth following
Isn't worth the effort of watching. Watch Shakespeare in love again, or the BBC Shakespeare comedy, "Upstart Crow".
50% is the "being a struggling playwright" and "theatre owners are old and loutish and funny" from "Shakespeare in Love".
25% religious/spy intrigue crowbarred into Shakespeare's life from "Elizabeth" or the "Tudors" or The White Queen
25% anachronistic Punk/rock music and costumes, tattoos, hair colouring etc kind of similar to what the awful movie "A Knights Tale" tried to do: modern music and costuming in a period story. I think the point is that the theatre was social taboo breaking like punk music was. Although all the theatres and plays were sponsored by the queen or nobles and were regulated. Soooooo, no. Maybe more similar to Hollywood and Andy Warhol.
Set design and quality from the recent Musketeers TV show. Not terrible, not great.
A refreshing historical fiction. Intrigue, romance, danger combined with colourful imagery. Well done.
