The musketeers don’t seem to like each other very much. Their dispute with the baddie is foully bad tempered. The garrison is blown up. Sadly Constance doesn’t die. Cultural values foreign to the time are shown. D’artagnan calls Constance a musketeer, no she damn well isn’t. There is a concealing of interest and added aggression. There are no innate facts or despair. The acting is markedly unconvincing. The baddie is roundly, deeply and rightly loathed for his stupid plan. There is no moral purpose.
There is death and this was not a stylish study. Athos does a growling delivery. Refugee woman is knocked up. The baddie's motives cannot withstand scrutiny. Since when does Constance have medical skills? No genuine feelings are invoked. D’artagnan is untroubled by the crap he caused. Ex-Red Guard guy is outraged by the affronts he suffered. This was not as defining as it thinks it is. D’artagnan murders someone. Porthos gets a woman. Constance is the stupidest bint who ever lived. The baddie is entirely friendless. Male threat responses kick in. There is emotional over-thinking.
The Queens of France wore WHITE as mourning. Anne of Austria wears a huge tacky crown. The Bourbons did not care about their subjects. A nice cathedral is visited. Louis XIV wears a gaudy crown. There is another gunpowder plot. Athos is a moron. Why is there a lake inside a cathedral? Athos murders a guy. Slowly and inexorably they’ve become awful people.
The Revolution is coming. Anne of Austria is an approval seeker and does dumb things. Sense is badly served. Louis XIV speaks. The foursome get new paths: Porthos is a General, the war grinds on, Aramis is first minister, Milady is hired by Anne of Austria to kill Gaston aka the true King of France, Anne of Austria plots and Gaston is murdered. D’artagan is made captain and finally gets a hat to sit on top of his blow-dry. Athos heads off. Constance will not shut up. This was okay.
“Are you my new servant Aramis?”
“We need no authority.”
“You are no longer the King’s Guard.”
“Will. He. Come?”
“What made you so cruel?”
“Not without use.”
“Few speak well of her.”
The fallout from the shooting in 1x01 goes on. Woz grows more and more suspicious of Harlee. A 3D printed gun is involved in a mysterious death. Woz has a major secret. Whoa - did not see that coming. Stahl is an egocentric little creep. Stahl has custody issues with an evil ex. Stahl is a creepy abuser type. Woz waves a gun and screeches in full on crazy Ray Liotta fashion. Harlee sloppy kisses the new DA. Mediocre.
“King panty dropper.”
“You asked a whore how to woo?”
“Innovative technology major.”
“You thought coming here was a good idea?”
“You want to hurt me? Do it yourself.”
“How the kid got dead.”
“Finish the sentence.”
“Got hit with ineffective assistance.”
“Feed lips are bent.”
“Dibs on the pimp.”
“Now she sounds desperate.”
“They have handshake issues.”
“Things were said. Feelings were hurt.”
