The Sherwood Foresters sustained the most casualties at the Mount Street Battle, therefore I assume this was the reason they were selected to be members of the executing squad.

could be, it wouldn`t be the first time in military history that scenario arose....going back to captain Dickson regarding the execution squad, he states later on that some members of the squad wanted to use bayonets so as to save them cleaning their rifles later, don`t know if this was a serious request or the blood was still up after the losses.

Good news for all those fans of Rebellion on here, RTE has commissioned "Resistance" from the same production company. Resistance will cover the War of Independence.

It was but RTE obviously has a plan and isn't letting poor ratings to stop them.

I expect a third segment called "Refusal" about the Civil War is waiting to be commissioned once they suck more money out of license payers.

Finally got to watch this on youtube. I don't think it was that bad, but it wasn't good either - what people these days call a bit "meh". I think it was trying to cover too much ground in too little time, and tell too many stories. There was an excess of characters too - (and too many moustachioed males, I kept getting mixed up) - so that you ended up not really caring about any of them......it was like it was trying to be too many things at once - soap opera, romance, tragedy, historical drama - which made it uneven and sort of insubstantial.
And the people in the tenements looked way too healthy!
