Turn: America's First Spy Ring

So apparently I'm behind the times and only just discovered AMC's TURN. Thanks to a whole bunch of graphic 18th century sex on this show, I'm betting Colonial Williamsburg is going to get a big boost in tourism this year.

TURN is a pretty fascinating drama exploring the spy ring that developed in America during the Revolution. The show is set in a Long Island town called Setauket that is British-occupied, and follows the lives of its inhabitants and stationed soldiers as they react to the unfolding events that lead to war. I believe the show has received mixed reviews, but I enjoyed it and it's certainly been popular enough to secure a second season.

And yes, there's lots of 18th century sex, gun fights, tavern brawls and such, but the most important thing you need to know is that there is this smokin' hot dude, Continental Dragoon Ben Tallmadge:

I'm pretty sure that Season 2 is going to be all about how he wins the war with his deep blue eyes and earnest expression. Give me liberty, or give me this guy with his shirt off.
