Netflix premiered its new original series Marco Polo a few days ago. It tells the story of the famous explorer in the court of Mongolian Emperor Kublai Khan. I haven't seen it yet but its beautiful title sequence has convinced me to give it a go.
When Netflix first announced it was doing a Marco Polo show, I wasn't particularly excited. But now that I've seen this first trailer — which seems to be going down the Game of Thrones route, i.e., plenty of political intrigue and sex. The difference is Marco Polo includes martial arts. I'm sold.
You won't have any trouble finding this Marco Polo in the pool—even with your eyes closed. Five Airbus a380s lined up nose-to-tail still wouldn't match the length, much less the overwhelming mass, of the world's largest container ship.
