It was always these scenes when the ninjas attacked in the chamberlain version that drove into Japanese miniatures. Maybe James will do a fitting KS with huge rooms? Then a dream would become true

I would say I enjoyed it too. However, I also felt somewhat let down. Just about every episode someone would say
"now it is war" or "start the operation" and then... nothing. No fighting, no armies, no battles just a lot of talk.
So, I liked it but the ending, for me, was a let down.

If they'd Ridley Scotted the ending book purists would have whinged.

Must admit I really enjoyed that. I wonder if the ending was just a hint of perhaps a 2nd series ? Perhaps they are going Ridley Scott ?

That was well done, the acting was very well done.
On time, on target, or the next one's free

Just binged it today. Loved it.

But what the hell was that old man flashback nonsense in the finale… I don’t understand that, as he doesn’t get home and even suggesting that he did removes any sense of tension (in the absence of anyone guessing it’s whatever it’s supposed to be).

Just started my free month of Hulu today to start watching.  Definitely enjoying this, and better than the original series.  I always thought Richard Chamberlain was fairly boring in the role of Anjin-san.  Cosmo Jarvis fills the role better.

It was superb! The last two episodes left me emotionally drained.

It wasn’t a flashback, apparently it was him daydreaming about the future.

I would certainly like a season 2 but I seriously doubt it.

A second season without a book and a dead author? This would be very senseless. The end is perfect and not all showes need second seasons...

Can't really remember the book as I read it so long ago and wasn't wholly keen on the original so I'm happy to disconnect from them. Watching shows like this is generally more about 'world building' for me than anything else but I thought the cast was very well chosen and would like to see more of them (well, the ones that are left  lol ).

I suspect that a second season will come down to one thing, and one thing only; cold hard cash.

BTW the book is/was available on Kindle for 99p so it's now in the virtual pile to be read.
