It’s a fantastic time to be alive for those of us who feed off TV/movies/games that are set in a time where cars and technology and guns were nonexistent, and people survived by the blade of their sword, the gallop of their horse, and the light of a flame. This is especially true when it comes to TV, where these types of shows weren’t very common.
Now, in a time where the best TV series you can see are on par with (if not better than) the best Hollywood movies being made, we’re beginning to see many more titles in this genre. These types of shows can be found on channels like HBO, Showtime, and Starz, and they don’t restrict or censor their content. Almost anything goes, all is fair, and it’s some of the grittiest, graphic, and most realistic content we as viewers could ask for. It’s hard to even watch regular TV anymore!
Recent and current titles that have fit this mold include HBO’s Rome, Showtime’s The Tudors, and Starz’ Spartacus: Blood and Sand (as well as their mini-series, The Pillars of the Earth), and it does not end there. One of the most anticipated upcoming shows is Game of Thrones on HBO, which is based on George R.R. Martin’s popular A Song of Ice and Fire books. And Starz also has another on the way titled Camelot, which you can get your first good look at right here!
