  • While the first hour is daunting, the series offers a terrific villainess who also has a knack for humor. [28 Aug 2005, p.F-03] Show More

  • As in season 1, the acting is rich and lusty, with no costume-drama fustiness. [15 Jan 2007, p.33] Show More

  • What the series gains this season by giving us more history and more compelling storylines, it loses by repeating some of its, er, epic mistakes. Again, no battle scenes - some of the most important in all of history - are shown. Show More
