Didn't Find What You Were Looking For?

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 Cursed: Albion's Misty Past

If you're a fan of Arthurian legend, or Robin Hood's exploits, these shows set in England's misty, mystical past are for you. Will make you ask, whatever happened to Nottingham?

Shows Like The Witcher: Swords and Sorcerers

Within the first ten minutes of The Witcher, the eponymous hero slays a monster with his sword, enters a dingy medieval pub, and meets a sorcerer. You know he's a sorcerer because he has a staff. This pretty much sums up a genre that includes sword-wielding heroes like Conan, Xena, and the Beastmaster.

Netflix Teen Shows

This list rounds up the Netflix take on high school and coming of age dramas and comedies.

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)?

Shows like Hanna: Badass Female Teens in Action

From Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Hanna, these young women wield swords, daggers, bow and arrow, brass knuckles, and just about any other weapon you can think of to kick the crap out of their foes.

Shows Like Merlin: Game of Thrones Lite

Following in GoT's footseps, many historical fantasy shows have gone the dark and gritty route; not so with these modern series that stick to the lighter side of the Swords & Sorcery genre.

Action from the Middle Ages

Throw on your best doublet, tune up your lute, and soak your hair in urine - you're in for a treat with these action-packed medieval shows.
