I hope we get a second season.I thought it was very good.

Agreed. The final two episodes just aired on National Geographic here in the UK. Quite a cliffhanger ending. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Hope there will be another season, although apparently they haven’t renewed it yet, so it may not happen  :?

I watched it.  Enjoyed it, but was frustrated with the end of the series.  If left too much hanging.  It seemed like the series ended an episode or two early. 
They might have told the audience at some point that a Barkskin was another name for a tree feller, a lumberjack. 
The language and accent shifting was a little odd as well. 
But it is rare to see any story that early set in the Americas and rare to see they French as the victims of the British aggression (well the Hudson Bay company).   
The gun fights were cool, shoot rifle, drop it, charge with blade, Pistol is a save roll.  I don't remember seeing anyone reloading.

No one has in the history of TV ever had to reload anything.  :D

No one ever reloaded in TV.....Good one Inkpaduta. 
 Especially the cowboy 24 shot 6-shooter.  Four in one blanks loaded into a six shot revolver, allowed more bang for the buck. 

In Barkskins I did like the single Saving roll that the characters all had with the pistol.  Not having a pistol was like beaming down in a red shirt.

My other favorite is when they do run out of bullets rather than reload they throw their gun at their opponent.

Maybe that is French for "Here you load it!"
