by | August 18, 2014 | 132 Comments
Great summer fun! Three Musketeers kicked off its first episode (and first season, of three planned) yesterday, and I’m hooked already: The show has a swift storytelling style, a delightfully cheeky sense of humor (which often dips into the refreshingly deadpan), and a set of characters with heart.
