Unfortunately that's the only thing about this show that's better than GoT.

That's not really a fair comparison. It's not really trying to be an Asian version of GoT.

From what I personally gather, it feels like it's just trying to be on par with other period pieces like The Borgias (both), or Rome. (However, I think Rome is much much better than both GoT and definitely Marco Polo)

Anyways, I'm on episode 3 and loving it thus far.

Unless you want to see some naked asian chicks, not worth watching...

I know the actress Olivia Cheng, I think she plays Mei Ling. Local actress doing well!

Unfortunately I agree, I've only watched the first episode, and it was slow as fuck.

The acting is pretty rough across the board, the lead actor who plays Marco lacks charisma or likeability, and as much I love naked women, the orgy scene at the end felt manipulative in keeping me watching the series (because bewbs), but there isn't enough substance or action so far to keep me interested.

There are too many plot lines in the first ep, so I don't give a fuck if Khan's son is attacking a village and will likely die, because we've barely got to know him.

This is something that GoT struggles with; anyone who watches that show will say that there are certain plot lines that no ones cares about (ie the red woman, crippled Bran etc)

It's ironic how Johnny Tran was disrespected in F&F at his house, and then he goes to Kublai's house and disrespects him.

Pretty entertaining if you abandon all logic and just enjoy it for what it is. I think Polo was the weakest character, didn't really care for what happened to him because he really serves no purpose to the story. Also, it would've been better if dialogue was spoken in Mongolian and Mandarin with subtitles. Khan's son's Australian accent really bugged me

I'm still trying to wrap my head around their $90 million budget. Where did they spend it on? sets? No spoilers here.

Practical effects and set dressing. They tried to use as little CGI as possible.

Watched 7 episodes and can't go on... had lots of potential but the characters are forgettable and the acting is pretty awful at times.

I fell asleep through most episodes. I didn't like it. Watched it because some guy at work said that I must.

Fuck you're so right LOL! Just forced myself to finish it. This series actually makes me want to ...


At the directing... there is next to zero character development so when people die it's like "meh". The ending is super weak too ...
