The Bastard Executioner (FX) Rated NR

bastard executionerA 14th century warrior is sent by a messenger to lay down his sword and become a journeyman executioner. Starring Lee Jones, Katey Sagal, Flora Spencer-Longhurst, Sam Spruell, Sarah Sweeney, Danny Sapani, Darren Evans, Kurt Sutter, Timothy V. Murphy, Sarah White, Elen Rhys, Ethan Griffiths, Stephen Moyer

This show looked promising, but I did not enjoy it at all.  I just couldn’t get into the plot, mainly because it didn’t make sense to me.  In addition, the excessive, brutal, gory killings turned my stomach.  I get that executions are the theme of the show, but the amoral way they are presented felt evil to me.  I wish there had been more concentration on the moral dilemma of his work.  Instead, I found myself struggling to identify with the main character, who seemed to have no problem with his actions. This show is not worth a watch.
