Anyone watched this? I have Netflix, like they’re most basic package, and I always struggle to find stuff I like to watch, especially enough to actually follow a series. But after finding this show I devoured every episode of it in the space of a week. It came out in 2014 so I’m expecting 2 years of episodes to keep me busy but sadly there were only like ten.
It’s about Marco Polo the explorer in his 20’s being left behind as an offering to Kublai Kahn’s court in northern China in exchange for trading rights. He basically becomes a member of his court as the Mongols are vying for control of the rest of China ruled by the whatever Dynasty.
The one time I mentioned it to one of my more intelligent acquaintances he was all like “Oh…that’s like history right?” I don’t know if it’s the way it’s taught to us in school, where it’s all boring dates of events and names or if we as a society just have a popular disdain for it being as technologically advanced as we are.
I don’t know I loved watching this show though and there’s another season coming this summer I’m looking forward to.
