Has anyone watched Will? Will is an American drama television series about the (fictional) life of William Shakespeare in his early 20s. The series was ordered for a first season containing 10 episodes, on May 18, 2016, and premiered on TNT on July 10, 2017.

While the show is fictional, there are certain things true about it. There is a real debate over whether Shakespeare was a closet Catholic or not. Also, it shows Christopher Marlowe as being gay, which history says he probably was. Marlowe is played marvelously by Jamie Campbell Bower.

I am also quite fond of Mattias Inwood's character, Richard Burbage. He has a magnificent butt that is shown off quite well in episode two. Also, Colm Meaney is in the show and as a Star Trek fan, I love him.

I have seen the first 3 episodes, but am taking it on a week by week basis. I will continue watching as long as the plot remains interesting. Truthfully, the biggest thing it has going for it IMO is that there isn't very much first-run programming available on TV right now. DVRing the episodes is the best way for me to watch, because so far there have been bits of intense violence that I want/need to fast-forward through. I do agree though, that the 3 main male characters are good actors and excellent eye-candy. :)
