    That article posted missed the point. He wanted a meeting with the EIC and got it in the end. His "I have a use for you" is what he says when he makes another move on the chess board.

    She turned him in out of anger for her daughter's murder, however the crime committed was in fact supplying the Americans with gunpowder. The details are not really put together well in the assessment.

    Can't complain. The 80-90 minute shows have been enjoyable. I know many have spoken out about it but the minutia of moving the story along doesn't fill an entire episode. You get enough of it and enough high points with that much time. IMO, anyway.

    I agree. I think there was only one episode where I felt they were stretching things.

    I'll make it through the finale, but I have to say I'm struggling a bit.

    Again they showed that sign that says MENS DANA IN CORPORA SANO. So almost-smart, but soooooo dumb.

    For the record, "Mens sana in corpore sano" is a well-known old Latin phrase meaning "Sound mind in sound body." "Mens dana in corpora sano" is gibberish.

    I enjoyed the series as well, but if the British government wanted Delaney dead and had sent soldiers to make sure that it happened, then why did they not include their most powerful weapon of all.....the navy. So once Delaney/gang get on a ship, the British Navy could not have used at least one ship to prevent them from leaving?

    I was thinking the same. They knew what he was doing. Maybe they didn't have anything nearby to get there in time? I dunno.

    I enjoyed the sht out of this show. Excited for another season. I give it an enthusiastic Delaney grunt! Hmmm!

    I forget what recap it was but I liked how someone said the first half of the episode was Oceans 1814.

    I agree.

    Also, and this isn't a complaint, I just think it is funny how several different shows have ended seasons on a boat sailing off to a new world (GoT, Outlander, and now this.)

    Eh. It was fine, but one season seems like plenty. They finished their story, I don't need to see them start up a new one.

    Are all your "hmmms" supposed to be Tom Hardy grunts?
