There are so many reasons to be bummed about the fact that season 3 is the last for “The Musketeers,” but to us the biggest one is rather simple: This is a show doing something that no one else on TV is! It’s fast-paced, exciting, and above all intense.
In watching this weekend’s latest episode, we do have a few quick impressions of what the writers / producers are up to.
1. Grimaud and Feron are great villains – Sure, we loathe them, but it’s the sort of loathing that you really want when it comes to villains. They are at least charismatic and present some sort of a threat to our heroes. They fit the world, and we wouldn’t ask for anything else at present.
2. Awesome moments – How about the Musketeers (or, to be specific, Porthos) strolling in and dumping out the grain? Awesome. Our heroes did their part to help a different sort of refugee crisis in this episode, one in which they were accused of terrible things. We always enjoy the Musketeers when they have a sort of playful / heroic energy about them, and they did for the majority of the story here.
3. Sylvie is a wonderful character – Though we don’t think that we had to tell you that. There were definitely moments in this hour that were devastating for her, as she had to cope with loss and figure out how to move forward. Also, wonderful chemistry with Aramis.
Ultimately, what we enjoy about this show and our heroes at present is that they are freedom-fighters, doing what they can for the good of others, while not remaining entirely self-serious along the way.
