La Révolution is a very decent series as long as you know what you're getting yourself into. I think a lot of people might dislike this series because they mistake it for something else. It's a historical setting, yes, but it's definitely not an actual depiction of the French Revolution. Don't watch this if you want to learn about some real history (there are plenty of other options for that). That being said, they did a stellar job of presenting us the look and feel of that time with the sets, costumes and overall impression of that time period. The production level is top notch! But they took a giant leap with the creative freedom part and in my opinion it works, I actually like it a lot! [spoiler]I enjoy the integration of zombies in the 18th century![/spoiler] The characters have some depth to them and the acting is very solid. The storyline flows really well and is binge-worthy for sure. And then last but definitely not least: the music! This series is an absolute treat when it comes to music! This is most certainly one of the best series I've ever seen when it comes to music direction. You can tell that a lot of work and thinking went into producing the right kind of music for a specific scene and it immensely elevates the series as a whole. I was very impressed by this! If you're into the fantasy and horror genre you should give this series a try. I'm really looking forward to the 2nd season!

Absolutely brilliant! So well produced, acting and a new take on zombies. Not a spoiler, as you know from the start it’s about zombies of a certain kind. Who knew the French Revolution and the guillotine was all about zombies! Loved towards of the last episode of the season, how the French flag :flag_fr: became invented. This is not a cheesy, overdone zombie scenario. It’s well thought out and actually fits in well with some historical facts and attributes some well recognised words to a near zombies breakout. I’ve seen it advertised a few times, but I thought it was simply a drama of the French Revolution. The artwork doesn’t give much away either. Really enjoyed it and looking forward to season 2!

Between looking for something (a historical series) and I found something totally different that I liked a lot anyway, highly recommended and I think it is very well achieved as they mix historical events with a bit of science fiction, highly recommended.

The French Revolution could be the source of amazing stories. Such a violent period, yet it shaped most of the values we enjoy today. So I'm still trying to figure out why someone went so far as to "reimagine" it and come up with this mess. Costumes are great, the sets are ultra realistic, the music is superb, the atmosphere is just right, but the storyline is utter ____ (ok trying hard to be respectful here).
