Trivia

Olivia Cheng worked out extensively to prepare for her physically demanding role as Mei Lin in the series. She even performed her own stunts. According to Olivia, the scene where she fights three soldiers while she was nude took two full days to shoot and she was exhausted by the end of the scene. But it was rewarding as it looked magnificent as no stunt doubles were used. See more »

The show has so much potential and love it :)
14 December 2014 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

Firstly, I am very interested in show since I saw first trailer. It was an impressive trailer. Especially Mongolia Empire is always interested for me. First episode's processing and storytelling were very well. Also characters and environment is magical.

In addition main theme is not only Marco Polo and actions but also political atmosphere, wars between Chinese and Mongolia Empire. Also there is an dilemma about what Kublai Khan is, because even though Kublai Khan is seem to depend Mongolia Customs, he has been described like Chinese Emperor. Actually it is little bit disturb me but I think it is make sense, because kings, khans who place chine to conquer were always assimilated.

Compare to other historical and biographical shows like Da Vinci Demons, Vikings, Black Sails, Spartacus, Rome; Marco Polo is first historical show attempt of Netflix and I think it is as good as others. I almost followed all historical TV series except Reign, I've really loved that show. Also in my opinion next seasons show will be improve itself, because scope of TV show is not just Mongolia Empire but also all place and civilizations on silk road

As a result of these, I've always liked epic/ historical TV shows like Rome, Spartacus, Da Vinci Demons, Vikings, and because of the fact that I believe that show has so much potential, I rate it 9 :)
