‘TURN’: Why hasn’t this TV series about the Revolution gotten more attention?

I’ve really enjoyed “Turn,” an account of spies and factions during the American Revolution.

I’ve really enjoyed “Turn,” an account of spies and factions during the American Revolution. The series does a very good job of capturing the civil war aspect of the war. The acting can be a bit broad (the guys who play Major John Simcoe and Major Robert Rogers are hoots), but it is fun to watch after a long day of work. And my wife, the historian, notes that, “Never has anyone made George Washington more accessible.”
