Are there other series worth revisiting? I am so out of the loop here.
If you have netflix, we just started watching one new for us, Marco Polo, where he is a young man as a stowaway on his father's ship and they end up in Kubla Khan's court and Marco's father asks the emperor if Marco can stay and be of service to Khan's court and he accepts, much to Marco's chagrin. Khan starts accepting Marco and has him sent first with one of his tax collectors and report and then into his brother's army camp and report, where Marco found not enough grain for the horses to wage a campaign against the Chinese, the horses would run out of food before they got half way and Khan sends some men to the camp to verify that and his son threatens Marco if he ever humiliates him in court again. It was found out to be true and now Khan trusts Marco to give him the truth in any situation Marco finds himself in.
Seems to me a great series. There are two seasons so far on Netflix, better than the one on Strange Empire. Did I tell you about that one? Canadian production with Cara Gee, half Ojibwe native actor and she was great in that production featuring strong women just north of the Canadian border, north of Montana and an evil mine owner. Only problem is CBC stopped production after one season. Great season though.
