Preface: May I introduce you to the TV series Young Blades? It’s a “The Three Musketeers: The Next Generation” in which farmer’s daughter Jacqueline Roget poses as disinherited nobleman Jacques Laponte in order to join the Musketeers, avenge her family, and thwart the evil Mazarin. Only the son of the famous d’Artagnan knows Jacques is Jacqueline. (For credits and chatter, please see the endnote.)
