Unbuckle your swash, loosen your corsetry and pour yourself a large bowl of relaxing hallucinogenic soup, because season 2 of The Musketeers is drawing to a close. So for the last time this year, here are some thoughts on Trial and Punishment...Collapse )

Musketime is here again, so here are some thoughts on The Prodigal Father...Collapse )

Now folks, remember that there are no Musketeers next week due to Comic Relief. I know, it's most distressing that we have to wait two weeks and even America gets to see the next episode before we do. If I were a French monarch I'd slam my bedroom door noisily and yell "OMG IT'S SO UNFAIR!!!" at this point. But since I'm not, I'll see you in a fortnight...

This week I’m coming to you live from the ancestral homelands of the north-east, although you probably can’t tell from this angle. In practical terms, this means that I can’t make silly graphics today and thus am reliant on silly graphics I made from this week’s teaser clip. Fortunately, however, I can still have silly thoughts, so here are some ponderings on A Marriage of Inconvenience…Collapse )

It's eclipse week on The Musketeers, so please put on your protective goggles, switch off that old Heroes DVD and turn around, bright eyes, because it's time for some thoughts on Through A Glass Darkly...Collapse )

It's all for one and one-four February, as the Musketeers make a welcome comeback after a short rugby-related hiatus. Here are my thoughts on the aptly named The Return...Collapse )

After a swashfree week due to the BBC showing men in shorts instead of men in leather, I'm pleased to say that this Friday, buckling was back, back, back. Here are some thoughts on The Musketeers 2.04: Emilie.Collapse )

Hello, and welcome to another bout of safe, sane and consensual swashbuckling, with some thoughts on The Musketeers 2.03: The Good Traitor.Collapse )

Cheers to everyone who said nice things about my first Musketeers review last week! I shall endeavour to keep hammering 'em out for the rest of the series. Here are some thoughts on episode 2.02: An Ordinary Man...Collapse )

Gosh, here's a turn-up for the books. Several people* have asked if I was planning to write recaps for series 2 of The Musketeers, in the style of my long-ago Merlin reviews. I didn't review series 1 of The Musketeers, mostly because it aired on a Sunday evening, which is not the best night for staying up late and typing nipple jokes. However, a few folk expressed disappointment about this and wondered whether series 2 moving to a Friday night meant I would change my mind.

Well... apparently it has, at least for now. I can't promise I'll recap every episode this season, but I'm going to start optimistically with some thoughts about episode 2.01: Keep Your Friends Close...Collapse )

* Well, three. Does that count as several?
