    Great show set during a pivotal moment in our history, definitely hooked, well written & acted and looks to have captured the period very well too. An intelligent balance between developing the characters and action scenes. Look forward to the rest of the season and hopefully more to follow. No problem understanding anyone so far

    I love this show but I highly doubt it gets renewed. Just look at those numbers every week the numbers jump down a few hundred thousand viewers.com I say this show gets itself a shot to finish the season it seems AMC doesnt cancel shows mid season like some of the bigger networks do, but I dont believe AMC will keep up after season 1. I hope thry do because this show is vastly different from a lot of shows but my guess is its done after one.

    Finally a show I can feel good about investing time in. There’s certainly enough zombies, Fairy tales and otherwise hard to believe shows to satisfy those genres. Turn is a refreshing return to un-sensationalized historical period story telling. It is extremely well done and i cannot wait until next week’s episode. I can only hope that other’s feel as I do. It would be a travesty if this series is not renewed. Please don’t change a thing. I’m hooked!

    James Rivington……Publisher of the Rivington Gazette & Royal Gazette in NYC from 1760 to 1783……..was crucial in obtaining the British Naval Flag Codes fron the British Navy and then in getting them to George Washington & thus the French Navy………before the Battle of Yorktown…….thus stopping the Royal Navy from saving Cornwallis during the Siege and ultimately forcing his Surrender…..A Crucial Event of the War

    This show is fantastic! I am already attached to the characters and I like how they have fleshed them out, in particular Daniel Henshall as Caleb Brewster. He surprised me as I was not expecting him to be in the show much, but I think Henshall has done a really great job. I also like that even some of the Americans are not very sympathetic, like General Scott. I hope Washington knocks him down a peg or two as we know Tallmadge is eventually tapped as the chief intelligence officer replacing General Scott. I really hope that they wrote that meeting into the show. It has been very entertaining and I hope it is renewed for another season.

    A very brave attempt to explore the complexities of this important time period in American history. The characters are unique and exciting to watch. I can’t wait to see the story unfold.

    Hah! If you think the accents are hard to understand on TURN, you must not have tried to understand the accent of Jonny Lee Miller on Elementary. Plus he talks quietly & at lightening speed! TURN is a really good program w/lessons in (heaven forbid) American History.

    Turn on your closed captioning. I can’t watch anything British without it. I’m convinced I might’ve liked Monty Python if we’d had CC those days.

    I liked TURN. I watched the first three episodes yesterday, and will be sure to catch it in its normal rotation next week. I like the characters, the setting in time and place, and most of all, that the main character is a British loyalist, even though he is US-born. Usually such tales are told from the gung-ho America POV, and this way we will get to watch the character go through changes.

    Love Seth Numrich. Would watch him in anything.
