Poldark (2015) - Season 1



Reviewing season 1, Mike Hale of The New York Times called the series "Sweeping, stirring, rousing...good stuff"[38] and his colleague Sarah Seltzer also wrote: "the series delivers immediately on the panoramic scenery and romance that this genre demands: plunging cliffs, green fields, galloping horses and burning glances aplenty".[39]Brian Lowry of Variety wrote: "Turner brings the necessary swoon-worthy qualities to the emotionally wounded lead...but the cast is uniformly good." Lowry also praised the "gorgeous photography" and the "haunting, wonderfully romantic score."[40] Keith Uhlich of The Hollywood Reporter made positive comparisons to the kind of romance novels sold in airports and said "This is trash done ecstatically well."[41]


On Rotten Tomatoes, seasons 3, and 5 hold respective ratings of 100%, and 86%,[35][36] with season five's consensus reading: "Poldark's final season gives fans exactly what they want: emotionally involving period drama fueled by exceptional chemistry with just the right amount of ridiculousness."[36]Reviewing season 5, Emine Saner of The Guardian called it "gloriously entertaining" and although she was critical of the series for "its jumpy approach to time and ludicrous storylines" and called it an "unwieldy anachronistic beast of a story", she praised the performances of Turner and Tomlinson and the resonance they gave to the story. Therefore, Emnie called it "the perfect farewell."[42]


Since her very first appearance being shoved about in a dog fight, only to be rescued by the one and only Captain Poldark, Demelza has stolen the hearts of those around her. Going into Season 5, the fierce, proud, steadfast, and true leading lady is as strong as ever. This season, Demelza handles affairs at Nampara, at the mine, and in the community, stepping into the role of leader whenever Ross is called away to London. And yet, somehow, she still finds the time to raise her family and support Ross and his (often reckless) endeavors, on top of it all.


Kerri McLean is joining the series this season as Kitty Despard, the wife of Ned and a former slave. She instantly fits right in with the Poldarks and the Enyses, as a kind friend and powerful voice for justice and equality. Kitty, like Ned, was a real-life figure in history that has made her way into the world of Poldark, thanks to writer and creator Debbie Horsfield.


I was reluctant to watch new series having watched original in 1975 plus have read all the books. new series enjoyable, but prefer the originL Think the characters of prudie and jud far better in original poldark. Alzo prefer the original portrayal of Elizabeth. overall the acting of the characters better in 1975, in my opinion. 041b061a72
