Shogun Reviews

Based on the novel of the same name, Shogun takes you on a time-travel trip to the 17th century in Japan. With an authentic touch, Shogun’s plot has been set to have a relatable storyline like who we are, staying loyal, and dealing with tough times. Not just history, but Shogun’s initial episodes held a grip on character and the plot will keep you hooked

Dan Einav, a top critic on Rotten Tomatoes, reviewed the limited series

The painstaking effort to root this vast saga in the specificities of era and culture is part of what makes Shōgun so compelling. But the examination of power and pride, personal ambition, and tribal loyalty ensures this story is…timeless and universal.
