So it appears the AMC Series Turn is back....I know Phil Wilson spoke of it last year:

http://www.amctv.com/shows/turn

Not too much on TV for our crowd here, but something worth noting I guess. 8)

Someone let us know how it is!!

I like the show, other then small inaccuracies (major Richard Hewlett was not a regular British officer he was a provincial officer from Merrick NY he was commissioned in DeLancey's New York regiment etc..) But don't expect to many battles as this show is strictly a historical spy drama... I highly recommand Alexander Rose book Washington's spies if you interested in the intelligence and spy networks of the Revolutionary war.

May not be perfect but head and shoulders above "Sons of Liberty". On my second season. And Anna Strong's eyes (actress Heather Lind) totally mesmerize me.
