Summary: Set on the streets of 17th century Paris, series gives a contemporary take on the classic story about a group of highly trained soldiers and bodyguards assigned to protect King and country.


The initial British airing of the series earlier this year built enough buzz to suggest that the early hints of deeper conflict will eventually help ground the slow-burn arcs. That undercuts any tedium when facing down the seemingly inevitable case of the week, and though there’s a certain magic to the current swashbuckling shenanigans, a little more dramatic tension wouldn’t go astray. But in fairness, sometimes a show doesn’t need to be more than it is. For The Musketeers to aspire to self-seriousness would be to upset the careful balance of summer popcorn cheese and earnest character-centric adventure. A well-acted romp that carries just enough weight to justify tuning in, The Musketeers is a campy delight; no one ever hands over a blade when tossing one with a flourish will do, and this time, that’s just as it should be.
