A feminist, revisionist history version of the founding of the Jamestown colony. If you're gonna make a historical tv series, at least try to be somewhat accurate, not cater to 21st century social expectations. The world of the early 1600's was VERY different than today, feminism didn't exist, and women had very little freedom. That's the reality of the era.

This is a work of fiction based on historical events. Is Braveheart accurate? Or Richard III? Or Goodfellas? Or any other historical drama? No, they're not. They're highly stylized versions meant to entertain, they're not meant to be taken as fact. This is no different except it deals w/ women which seems to be the real problem. It's OK for a historically inaccurate version as long as a white dude is featured, but break out the pitchforks if it's a chick. Also unless you know quite a bit more on the subject than what you learned in 8th grade social studies how the hell do you know what happened? I don't, but then again I'm smart enough not to expect historical accuracy from a TV drama. Pity the poor white man, so persecuted.

The historic role of women in society was far more complex than is commonly believed today. While they may have had less overt political power than they possess today, they wielded a great deal of influence over their spouses when it came to domestic issues. Women were generally responsible for all domestic tasks, including educating the children. Keep in mind that infant mortality was about 50% and extremely large families (by modern standards) were the norm - and anyone who has had to keep tabs on two kids can only shudder at the work load of 6 - 12 kids. It was more a division of labour than any overt desire to oppress or belittle. Besides - ask any married man from neolithic times to present - the only way to have any peace at home is to keep the wife happy (or at least content). ;-)

I have to comment seeing all of the comments on feminism, although my comment was way too long before. Woman in history have paved the way for us to vote and more. Although I do not take a stand as a feminist because there are men who are for woman being the same as men and every person should be dealt with or judged individually on how they treat minorities, not as a group. We need to all group together for everyone to gain equal rights in every kind of minority, which I believe together is now the majority.

Feminism has been around as long as women. England was ruled by a woman for 50 years until shortly before the first English settlers arrived in America.

I wonder if this fantasy tells the tale of how these European savages came to this country and started raiding Indian graves and committed the first act of Indian genocide where it was said that they beheaded Indians and played foot ball with their heads. All this after the Indians helped them get through the winter. Happy Thanksgiving LOL

Nice easy watching. The acting is good, but the writing is not so great all the time with rushed plots and so on. Still worth a watch though if you are in to historical dramas. 3/5 stars from me.
