Didn't Find What You Were Looking For?

Shows like Fleabag: Best Dramedies

The ancient Greeks divided their plays into comedies and tragedies, but the smiling and frowning masks are more extremes of a spectrum than binary variables, and some of the best TV shows of the past two decades, like Fleabag, Atlanta, Succession, and Shameless, find humor in deep pain and poignancy in funny situations.

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.

Best Fantasy TV

If reality is feeling grim, escape into your favorite fantasy lands--misty dales, wise sorcerers. Hold on a second, those White Walkers look really mean. Go for the escape, stay for the entertainment.

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 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)?

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.
