I was totally surprised by this show. It's better than Davincis Demons with a beautiful setting and lots of ancient wisdom. For me the best new series 2014!

Don't let the Trailer or the Poster trick you. IT's NOT THAT GOOD.

avatar

it's a shame! in the trakt.tk page of the show, someone have missed the great Pierfrancesco Favino in the cast section... WTF!

Damn you, Netflix, for cancelling this show!

Great show to bad Netflix just axed it was looking forward to a season 3

​ Found about this show while scrobbling through Netflix. I guess they are trying to forget about it, as it​'s buried somewhere deep over layer of crap Netflix have made recently. Acting and characters are well presented, however, I would still have to say that only _latin_ is well to be known. Season one was catching, visuals are tasty and intrigues upon watching, to be honest, without such good cinematography series would end up pretty blend. It​'s hard form me to say how historically accurate show is, as my history class skipped about former Mongolian empire and China Dynast, but I do have to admit that both empires are presented great, once again, visuals speak them-selves. I would say that combat/war scenes are the ones I really enjoy. Very aesthetic. We can rant a bit about what sells and what not, clearly Marco Polo did not, sad, but I understand why Netflix cancelled it.

On **December 12, 2016 Netflix** announced they had **canceled Marco Polo after two seasons**. Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that the series' two seasons resulted in a $200 million loss for Netflix, and the decision to cancel the series was jointly taken by Netflix and The Weinstein Company

I liked season 1 but I am struggling to stay interested with season 2, I guess the writers got bored too as it appears they moderately smutted it up a bit ;-)

I like it. Very entertaining.

I went into this show with zero expectations after it popped up on my feed somewhere and seemed like it'd be worth a shot. It definitely is, really enjoyable story and good acting interesting characters - not the greatest thing on TV definitely, but if you;re in the mood for something oriental and based off of the life of one of the most interesting people ever to live, then I highly recommend checking it out.
