Horribly Inaccurate and Melodramatic

I don't usually write bad reviews at all, but this is the first series I've come across that truly deserves it.

To say this series is at all factual is absurd. Dramatic license is used at every opportunity to replace history with rumor, and it does so so brazenly, and during the most important moments that it's little more than your run of the mill soap opera, set a hundred years ago with familiar names.

If you watch this and find yourself saying "no, did it really happen that way?!?" The answer is no, it did not. What you saw is garbage. A young protagonist driven by a quest for self-aggrandizement bares no resemblance to the hero of scientific thinking we admire today, and a few technical words thrown around here and there do not give license to so egregiously rewrite history.

It makes me sad to think people will watch this and come away feeling like they've learned something...
