    TURN- AMC

    Anyone else watching this? Curious what everyone thinks. Based on the journals of "rebel" spy Abraham Woodhull during the revolutionary war. Gives a totally different side to the war than what we often read about in school

    I'm watching it. Pretty good so far. Does a good job of showing the personal struggles Abe goes through by being loyal to the Continental Army and still loyal to his father and wife and child. Was hoping it would show a little more military action but due to the budget constraints AMC has vs big Hollywood it is understandable. Some of the special effects are pretty bad but overall a very good show.

    As soon as I found out there was no vampires, I lost interest...

    Saw a commercial and thought it sounded interesting, but never caught when it started and couldn't remember what channel it was on.

    The first episode had a ton of action and that got me hooked but it hasn't had that since. They did a good job of showing what the intel he provided did for the continental army. Haven't really seen his work in action since then and I hope they get back to that

    Liked the pilot but still haven't watched the last couple episodes. Hoping I get some time to watch before it piles up on my DVR too bad.

    Some special effects are really bad. Took me completely out of it and made me think I was watching SyFy.

    I like it a lot. It's very interesting and I think I actually like it more that they aren't showing a lot of the war. It makes more sense that way since this is supposed to be the behind the scenes action.

    I also like how they didn't make Abe a "super spy" overnight. He's smart but he's not winning the war and taking out all the redcoats by himself.

    Seriously, I think it's a cool subject matter but everyone I know is confused because the first few episodes were hard to follow.

    I love it...always a fan of historical dramas.

    Was looking forward to this show...I loved Brad Meltzer's Decoded show and they had one on the Culper Spy Ring, which is it what this show is based on...so when I heard about it I was excited to watch.

    That show had a cool premise but was total garbage.

    They never got to the bottom of anything and he didn't do anything but sit in front of a white screen. The Freemason episode got me annoyed the most... 60 minutes and the don't reveal anything. If that's the point then just have a documentary on it and not a "mystery hunt"
