    I don’t understand what was wrong with episodes 2-4? Episode one was obviously not the best, but every show is allowed to have one bad episode to start with, as long as they show signs of improvement and they most certainly did from episode 2 on wards. Sleight of Hand was a really enticing adventure. Commodities was a fantastic piece of drama and hugely developed Athos. The Good Soldier was another good piece of drama, Aramis seen some development, it was intriguing seeing the Musketeers questioning whether they could trust their leader and there werequite a few shocking reveals towards the end of it that I was not expecting. The Homcoming did have some good drama in it towards the end, and it was nice to see some development of Porthos. However there was a couple of times they just kept repeating the same idea over and over again and never really develop, OK WE GET HE ABANDONED THEM, MOVE ON! It was also annoying when a one or two times the characters looked like they were going to do die and would have made a good bit of drama, but then they didn’t and on one occasion or another, without any explanation. I really don’t see why people liked it that much, it was pretty predictable for most of it. Then the episodes returned to a much better standard. I don’t get what it is people didn’t like about some of the episodes, but they only ones for me that I didn’t enjoy greatly compared to the rest, were Friends and Enemies and The Homecoming. Other than that, the series has been pretty awesome so far.

      I found nothing wrong with Episode 3 (if you have a look back you’ll see I gave it a whopping 10/10), I enjoyed Episode 2 but I found Episode 4 to be the worst of the lot. The show has been struggling to find a consistent tone and style and Episode 4 was pretty much everything bad about the show so far magnified. I have really enjoyed the show so far and it has advanced from being merely “good” to “great” over the past few weeks. And I found the Homecoming to be a lot of fun. But that’s obviously my opinion.

    Hey admin! How are you? I’m enjoying reading these reviews a lot (I’m a bit bored not being able to talk to you guys so something to read is always appreciated). This episode also gave me high hopes for Capaldi as The Doctor seems I’ve not seen him in much before.
