101 Behind the Musket
On the streets of 17th century Paris, law and order is more a fledgling idea than reality, and the Musketeers, Athos, Aramis and Porthos, are far more than merely royal bodyguards for King Louis XIII; they are inseparable, loyal unto death and committed to upholding justice. Together, this crack team of highly trained soldiers fight for honour, for valour, for love, and just for the pure thrill of it. When d'Artagnan arrives in Paris to avenge his father's death he soon impresses the three Musketeers with his bravery and skill, and quickly discovers kindred spirits in these boisterous soldiers. In a series all about passion, loyalty, heroism and brotherhood, d'Artagnan and the Musketeers face a continuing struggle to maintain order and protect the King and Queen, while outwitting the machinations of the shadowy Cardinal Richelieu as he ruthlessly strives to achieve his vision of a modern France along with his hired assassin, the beautiful but mysterious Milady de Winter. Witty, action-packed episodic stories combine with breathtaking adventure and stunning production values to create this cinematic, blockbuster drama series with universal appeal.

About this show

Breathing new life into the classic novel by Alexandre Dumas, The Musketeers is packed with action, adventure and romance. Set on the streets of 17th-century Paris, where law and order is more an idea than reality, the series follows the horse riding, sword-wielding Musketeers Athos, Aramis and Porthos. Far more than King Louis XIII's personal bodyguards, they ultimately stand resolutely for social justice: for honor, for valor, for love and for the thrill of it.

IT IS BRILLIANT. Additionally, season 1 is on Amazon Prime for free( if you are a prime member of course) Honestly, I had been looking for a good period drama to wrap up quarantine before I start at Uni. I can honestly say this is it. Anyone who enjoys shows like Poldark or any Jane Austen series, Merlin, ect. will enjoy The Musketeers. The actors and writers are absolutely brilliant. All things considered I thoroughly enjoyed season 1 and am said to be seeing season 2 going by so quickly. Specifically well done characterization is something I am a sucker for and both actors and writers are absolutely amazing at this vital ingredient to a good tv show.

I've enjoyed this series thoroughly, after buying season 1 at a glance in a store simply because I had seen so many of these actors in other things, and it did not disappoint! Once season 1 got its feet under it and found its pace, I was all-in for these adventures! Season 2 is also fun and full of action and drama, with touches of comedic moments to lighten the serious moments and show the camaraderie between the Musketeers. There are a few lulls in season 2 but they are short and minor, and overall the action is wonderful. I can't wait for season 3!

The actors chosen for the Musketeers are suburb. Best action pack and swordsmanship ever. The connection between all the characters pull you into the story line. The musical back ground is purfect. Of course, you fall in love with Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and the dashing D'Artagnan.
