Marvelous entertainment on every level. We're in a new golden age of television now, especially for fans of sci-fi, fantasy, and historical drama. And this show with its great production values and seductive cast, is outstanding for the more playful and fun approach it takes to historical romance. It's light, fast paced, and beautifully done. Of course the older Musketeers movies always delivered comedy as well as action, but this version is just serious enough and intelligent enough to make the wit and humor all the more appealing. The violence and inevitable cruelty of the period is never overdone, and moments of triumph often depend not on brutality but on cleverness. The villains or antagonists --- Milady de Winter and Cardinal Richelieu --- are quite complex and truly interesting characters, and that adds considerable depth to the whole offering. I am delighted that a second season is in the works. --- For some one who grew up in the forties and fifties as I did, reveling in Errol Flynn movies like "Captain Blood," "Robin Hood," or "The Sea Hawk," this is a great treat. It's entirely safe for an audience that might find the gore of "Game of Thrones" too much, and the sadism of "The Borgias" simply overwhelming. "The Musketeers" is not striving to be as serious as those and other shows, yet at the same time the sets, costumes, and the cinematography are superb, the writing is consistently excellent, and the use of historical figures is extremely well done. Every episode is profoundly emotionally satisfying. Highly recommended.

It's amazing it took so long to get a really great Musketeers series, a favorite topic for so many.

This production is very true to the spirit of Dumas' classic, as well as the 70's movies that have come to embody it. The sword play is outstanding and heart pounding. This production goes with a less acrobatic style than seen in recent versions, but opts for a more realistic and gritty approach to the sword play. There isn't much gore or anything like that, but the action still manages to be hard hitting. Along with the sword play, the series manages to keep the verbal repartee that preserves the comedic and intellectual sparing which is just as important to the feel of the Musketeers. The humor is much more natural and much more clever this time. Not clownish. This show is not a comedy, but the characters have very sharp wit. Many re-boots go very dark, losing the humor all together. The Musketeers are special though. The verbal fencing is every bit as important as the real sword play.

The Musketeers are a slightly more diverse crew in this version. Back stories are explained quickly and each persona is developed meticulously to help the viewer see their gallantness, their honor, their skill, and their rakishness. Each actor for Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and D'Artagnan seem nearly born for the part by the time they get a chance to establish character. Lady D'Winter didn't blow me over at first. But they skilfully bring you into her and Athos' relationship and humanize her, while showing her capable of the most vicious plans. She is the ultimate chess player! Athos is not as Priestly in this version, but he still piously and honorably conducts himself while exuding the melancholy shadow that haunts him.

5.0 out of 5 stars "All For One..." June 22, 2014
Format:DVD
With the latest television adaptation of "The Musketeers", the BBC has finally managed to perfect the technique that was originally utilized in the likes of Robin Hood and Merlin - that of taking a legendary hero (or in this case, group of heroes), keeping their iconic personalities, background and conflicts intact, but throwing them into an episodic series of adventures that allows for original storylines, personal character development, and a variety of guest-stars. Suffice to say, if you enjoyed the energy, style and general premise of those previous shows, you're pretty much the target audience for "The Musketeers."

But whereas "Robin Hood" inexplicably killed off vitally important characters in its season two finale (leaving the survivors to meander listlessly through an awful final season) and "Merlin" clung so strongly to its formula ("keep the magic secret") that it shut down all possibility of any meaningful development, "The Musketeers" finds that happy balance between plot and character. Throw in a good grasp of continuity, high production values, and actors that embody their roles to perfection, and this a show that fully delivers on its promise of being swashbuckling fun for the whole family - emphasis on *fun*.

If you're a fan of Alexandre Dumas's novel (and subsequent sequels) be warned that you're not going to find a faithful retelling of the plot. Instead, the writers are more concerned with keeping the spirit of the novel intact whilst spinning their own tales across the ten forty-five minute episodes that comprise the first season.
