My brother loves it and tells me I would love it, too. I may give it a try.
Have you watched it?
It's pretty freaking awesome. It's mostly PRC wushu based & in some parts outright WRONG on the time of the Yuan Dynasty vs martial arts being displayed. But it is a good watch & entertaining. Hundred Eyes is by far the cool factor of the show.
The new Hundred Eyes short is awesome, yes.
While I've got plenty of er, quibbles about the Marco Polo series in general, I gotta admit it's entertaining & has great action. I know they're kind of pulling in a lot of inaccuracies, anachronisms and outright wrong stuff throughout the show -- part of that is because The Travels of Marco Polo is itself a disjointed document, but I think they could do much better -- but yeah, the martial arts is cool.
An added benefit is that I put on Marco Polo & Hundred Eyes for my irritable, cranky stepdad over the holidays & he barely left the couch, except to ask how to play the next episode on the smart TV.
Exactly!!! I was also amazed at how the Mongolians were also a fan of Brazilian waxing too...
It's been on my list of things to watch when I can fit it in. My wife and I have been catching up on other shows like Daredevil, Arrow, Gotham and The Flash over the past several months.
