Ross Poldark returns home after the American Revolutionary War and rebuilds his life with a new business venture, making new enemies and finding a new love where he least expects it.
This review is for the first 3 episodes of season 1.
I was hooked by the end of the first episode! The main character, Ross Poldark, is determined to make a better life for himself and those around him. He isn't afraid to speak his mind and do what's right, even if it hurts him in the end. Ross is a very likable character, and I love how he adds a bit of lightness to the story now and then with his humor and good cheer. And did I mention how handsome he is? Because he is. And now my shallow moment has passed....
Fabulous acting from the secondary characters. They really made the story come to life. The scenery and cinematography were excellent.
Some of the characters are just awful people, which is to be expected, but that doesn't mean that I have to like them. There's really nothing that I haven't enjoyed about this series so far.
If this were a book:
It is a book! Or rather, a series of books. I haven't read them, so I have nothing to compare.
I really didn't know what to expect when I starting watching Poldark, but I ended up loving it! I can't wait to watch the rest of Season 1.
