Follows New York farmer, Abe Woodhull, who bands together with a group of childhood friends to form The Culper Ring, an unlikely group of spies who turn the tide in America's fight for independence.

I have no idea why I even wanted to watch this but now after finishing the first season, it’s not something I regret.

What I love most about the show are the costumes, the sets and the old-timey grammar of the late 1700s.

The thing about this show though is that all the characters are pretty much unlikeable, not to say that they are badly acted – they’re not – but I could less about any of them.

There were some scenes with some pretty horrible special effects but it’s not a show that has a lot of scenes with it in them.

One thing that majorly bothered me was Abraham Woodhull (Jamie Bell) ofter wore a beanie and I'm not entirely too sure but I don't think beanies were a thing back in the 1700's, especially not ones very well done like the one he wore!

While I was okay with watching this, I probably won’t be watching any more seasons, nor would I watch this one again.
