Netflix has an interesting way of releasing their made for TV serials. . . . all are released at the same time which allows for binge watching! Last night we watched 3 and this afternoon 2 more episodes.
I love historical pieces and I know little of ancient China and the Moguls. Interestingly , the Moguls of Marco Polo later became the Mongols of India who contributed to architecture, culture , art , and religion of India which we enjoyed ever so much during our time there.
Obviously, we are enjoying “Marco Polo” and I recommend it to you. It shows excesses of royalty, the poverty to the common people,and struggles of fathers and sons. Sadly many of these remain unfulfilled struggles today. Here are some quotes for the dialogue that I really liked. . . .
“I must become the father I always wished my father was, but wasn’t.”
“The struggles to serve and fulfill your duty inspires strength in others and in you . ”
And I think my favorite is the dichotomy of this one:
“Pain purifies and leads to peace.”
