The 3rd episode of Britannia was simply okay. The series has really been disappointing this far in. That is really a shame, since there are so many great actors and actresses in the series. The story isn’t great, but it does have a lot of potential. Sadly, things aren’t getting any better. The Roman soldiers are terribly stupid and the dialogue certain doesn’t help matters any. This episode scores a 5.5 out of 10. Catch up with previous recaps of Britannia right now!
