We return to Jamestown, a 17th Century English settlement on the edge of the breathtaking but untamed Virginian wilderness. This second season sees the tobacco plantations provide the wealth they promised but the status quo will soon be disrupted by births, deaths and broken marriages. Our pioneering settlers find themselves at the heart of adventure once more as new arrivals attempt to find their place in this foreign land. Relationships with the Native peoples afford some great influence in the town but no man, or woman, is going to give up their share of the Virginian riches without a fight. Jamestown returns for another season of dazzling ventures in love, war and diplomacy. Making a home in the New World is a dirty business, can our colonists keep their consciences clean.
1619, twelve years after the men have founded the colony of Jamestown, women arrive from England duty bound to marry the men that have paid for their passage. Among the women are Alice, Verity, and Jocelyn who arrive with little idea of what the future holds or the disruption they are about to bring to the settlement. The new governor, Sir George Yeardley, and his wife also arrive and discover that running the settlement is not without problems with a company secretary trying to undermine his position.
Admittedly, this story is not in any way historically accurate but it is a whole heck of a lot of fun. It’s kind of like The Tudors, based on something in history but mostly made up and told in a soap opera-ish fashion. If you don’t like that in a television show then this isn’t the right kind of show for you. However, if you are like me and can appreciate the wackiness of it all and will, basically, watch any period piece then I think you will enjoy this show. I’m drawn to the women and want to see what will happen to them. The men are mostly secondary and seem to be your stereotypical portrayals but somehow it’s still fun. It could be that its just so bad its good, I don’t know, I just know that I’ve enjoyed binging it and can’t wait for season 3.
This story of a frontier drama did suck me in immediately. I love old stories, books, and films. I feel the se designing did do an outstanding job creating it, it feels real. Obviously I did not live then, however through reading about these times the creators made a compelling and fierce show. Bringing in the women shows this isn’t like history as most stories are about meek and obey women. This show gives a voice to those women, that I’m sure there were a few like me whom cant allow to keep my mouth shut when its important. Its love, romance, betrayal, rape (which was common those days), leadership at any and all costs, fellowship, helping your fellow man/woman when land needs demanded it. I appreciate a good show to binge, especially these kinds of shows. I do hope to see more soon! I must say thank you for great acting, fantastic costumes and directing.
I loved this! It was very entertaining & the cast did a wonderful job. It was easy to follow along & get caught up in the storyline.
Side Note *People are giving it a low rating because you have to pay to watch it…that doesn’t make sense! The rating is supposed to be based on the show & if you liked it! Not the fact that it’s not free on Amazon. That has nothing to do with the show itself but rather Amazon’s add on PBS.
