Musketeers?  
So far this season, when we get to see the foursome, they're incompetent and not a foursome much at all. It's a toss up which of the two which makes me more nuts. Probably the incompetence since it's there to drive a weak story and only manages to make it weaker. All Treville gets to do is look pensive. Bad guy is just weirder than weird and not at all interesting. Miss Richelieu. His motivations were so much more interesting. Lady DeWinter - her story feels more like a 'how do we keep her in this' story. The one thing I absolutely adore is Constance now with the Queen.

I've only seen 3 eps this season and I've yelled, cringed and 'seriously?!' at each one.

Nix this neutered version of our foursome and get The Musketeers back.

ETA: Scratch the 'I will not go nuts over a TV show' New Year's resolution off....:)

Ugh, I'm feeling the same way.

I HATE Rochefort. HATE. I can barely stand it when he's in a scene.

I hated the cardinal too, but I LOVED to hate him. He was a great character, wonderfully played.

This season so far seems very different than last and in a most disappointing way to me.

YES! And he could so deliver a line! Rochefort - he's just so - ick. Not a fun villain at all. I want to fast-forward.

There's so much focus on the other characters - which I'd be fine with to a point, but 3 episodes in and I'm still waiting for the the foursome that I adored in the first season.

On a way less grumpy note - finished Team Riyria. How I love those characters!
