Didn't Find What You Were Looking For?

Shows like Rome: Ancient Civilizations Brought to Life

These documentaries, dramatizations, and dramas bring ancient civilizations to life. They span across the globe, including the great Empires of China, Byzantium, and Rome.

Shows Like Bosch: Amazon Original Drama

The same company that brings you your dental floss and Lara Bars, now also bringing you high quality TV dramas that plunge the depths of the human soul. Talk about multi-tasking!

EPIX Original Series

Not typically mentioned in the same breath as HBO or Showtime, but EPIX has produced some impressive originals including Get Shorty, Godfather of Harlem, and the surprisingly good Pennyworth.

Shows like Spartacus: Historical Action Series

If you prefer your fight scenes with swords over guns, and love a good carriage chase, this list of action-packed shows set in the past is for you.

Shows Like Jessica Jones: Badass Female Action Heroes

Shows about women who kick ass and take names - but only take your name to google you, find your address, and come back later to kick your ass again.

Shows like Medici: Political Intrigue through the Ages

Cutting across time periods and settings, these shows have one thing in common--lots and lots of political plotting and intrigue.

Fresh Takes on Period Dramas

These historical series inject a modern sensibility and energy into the stuffiness of traditional period dramas through fresh soundtracks, current slang, and positive representation of a diverse cast of characters. The modern adaptations are not everyone's cup of tea, and may leave some more traditional Jane Austen fans clutching their pearls.

Shows Like Peaky Blinders: Period Shows for Dudes

Forget the emotional life of butlers and wind-swept moors. These gritty shows are all about sword-wielding soldiers and Victorian bad guys.

Shows like Spartacus: Live by the sword, Die by the Sword

What do Ancient Rome, Medieval Florence, and the Eastern Han Dynasty have in common? No not great art or literature--sword fights. Lots and lots of sword fights. Sure some of them gratuitous in terms of advancing the plot, but how else are you going to kill your enemies (or zombies, or vampires)?
