The First Musketeers web series

I just happened across the fact that there is a Musketeers web series. It's called The First Musketeers. Here's what the web site says about The First Musketeers:

"It is a prequel to The Three Musketeers, set around 6 years before Alexandre Dumas’ novel. It is an origin story for the three main characters and uses the back stories provided throughout Dumas’ Musketeer books to track back in time to when the Three Musketeers first met. Similarly to Dumas, we have also used real historical events to inspire the adventures that our young Musketeers go on, the first of which leads them to the younger Richelieu, who has been banished from the court in Paris to Avignon."

I haven't had a chance to watch it yet. Once I do, I'll post a review.

Speaking of not having watched yet, I still have to finish watching the Russian version of the Three Musketeers. So far, it is rather odd as a non-Russian speaker to hear Russian spoken by people who are supposed to be French while reading subtitles in English. But the sets and costumes are great.
