"TURN" review by Suzanne
Airs Sundays 9/8c on AMC

This is a good cable show. I'm not yet sure if it's "great", but it certainly could be. So far I'm enjoying it. It's a spy show set during the Revolutionary War. I'm glad to see any show set in the past. I'm a sucker for any period piece.  The show LOOKS very good. It has a very authentic look, yet it's also pretty colorful.

It's basically about a farmer who spies on the British for the Americans, and how they give birth to the whole modern idea of spies. I didn't realize it's based on a book, too. Very interesting. The writing is very good, and I like how it plays out so far.  I plan to add it to my ever-growing list of new shows to watch!


About the Show

Based on Alexander Rose’s book Washington’s Spies, AMC’s TURN tells the untold story of America’s first spy ring. A historical thriller set during the Revolutionary War, TURN centers on Abe Woodhull (Jamie Bell), a farmer living in British-occupied Long Island who bands together with his childhood friends to form the Culper Ring -- an unlikely team of secret agents who not only went on to help George Washington turn the tide of the war but also gave birth to modern spycraft.

TURN, from AMC Studios, is written by showrunner Craig Silverstein (Nikita) and executive produced by Barry Josephson (Bones, Enchanted) from Josephson Entertainment. The series stars Jamie Bell as Abraham Woodhull, Seth Numrich as Ben Tallmadge, Heather Lind as Anna Strong, Daniel Henshall as Caleb Brewster, Meegan Warner as Mary Woodhull, Kevin McNally as Judge Richard Woodhull, Burn Gorman as Major Hewlett, Angus MacFadyen as Robert Rogers, JJ Feild as Major John Andre, and Samuel Roukin as Captain Simcoe.

TURN airs Sundays at 9/8c on AMC.
