TURN “Pilot”

Episode Air Date: April 6, 2014

Podcast Date: 2016.08.28




At the dawn of the Revolutionary War, struggling Long Island farmer Abraham Woodhull is recruited by the Colonial Army to spy on the British.


It's the autumn of 1776 in Setauket, Long Island. At his farmhouse, Abe Woodhull speculates to his wife, Mary, that the war will be over by Christmas.


Clip 1:

Major talking to Captain (check name) regarding being court marshalled in England. I love seeing the order the English crown took with them across the world.

Clip 2:

Abraham held by the Continental Congress. Ben Talmadge attempts to recruit him.

Clip 3:

Abraham and Anna Strong talk about Captain Simcoe being a creep. Anna convinces Abraham to join the rebellion.



  • I believe TURN is a fun, engaging show that is often overlooked. Had it not been for an Emmy campaign, I might have forgotten about it.

  • I LOVE THE AGE OF DISCOVERY. Have I talked about that enough on the show?
