The Musketeers 1x03 + Banshee 1x10 Reviewed

The musketeers have to deal with the explorer Emilie (James Callis of ‘Battlestar Galactica’) and his wife who are putrid stains on humanity. Meanwhile flashbacks reveal the background to Athos, Milady and their pallid miens. She is a heinous skank with bottomless self-absorption, he bores. Porthos’ mixed race background plays into the plot as Emilie is infested by a certain ideological mentality. This show is slightly-twee.

The musketeers have an interesting concept of first aid, France’s trade treaty with Spain plays an important plot part, Athos has difficulty engaging with society, Porthos abhors Emilie and flies into a murderous rage around him. This was dull and Constance is menaced by Milady.

Best Lines:
“Any notion of a personal life ended the day I picked you out of the gutter and made you my creature.”

“Hurry and you might live.”

“My father raised me on tales of the great heroism of the musketeers.”
“Who was he, Nostradamus? The regiment didn’t even exist then.”

“That was very formal.”

“I’m going to pretend I didn’t hear that.”

“The cost would be unfathomable.”

“That’s very wicked of him.”

“What do you think he’s going to do to me when he finds out that I don’t have a gift for him?”
“Quite ugly things I’d imagine.”

“I refuse to arrive at the palace on an ass.”

A Mixture of Madness
Mr Rabbit whines, Hood is in peril, Kai kills people, the Native American casino plot drags on, blood and bullets fly. This was dull with death, Carries losing her fake life and Hood facing exposure as the real Lucas Hood’s grave is found.

Best Lines:
“This is my home!”
“So you’re upset that the man who cut off the head of the guy you sent to kill him isn’t respecting your privacy?”

“I don’t like you very much.”
“Duly noted.”

“Did we win?”
“We didn’t lose.”

“I never forgave you.”

“Goodbye daddy.”
