Goriest TV Shows

If you cannot stand the sight of blood (or gore or decapitations or decomposing bodies), you should take a pass on these shows.

Shows like Band of Brothers: Greatest Historical Mini-Series

There's nothing miniature about the scope of these historical mini-series; from 'Roots' to 'I, Cladius', they bring history to life in digestible chunks, without dragging on interminably (like some TV shows we know).

Starz Original Dramas

While not as well known as HBO and Showtime, the premium network Starz has produced some high quality original dramas including Power, Black Sails and Outlander.

Shows like Banshee: Non-Stop Action TV

A list for those of us who are easily bored by plot and character development but love frequent fights, shootouts, and car chases--hold the existential dilemmas please.

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 Outlander: Starz Period Drama

What they lack in the spelling department, Starz more than make up for in the swashbuckling and wind-swept moors.

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)?

Shows like Rome: Sandals, Scandals, and Vandals

They may be set in antiquity, but there's nothing dusty about these period shows; check out HBO's 'Rome' for a Deadwood-esque treat, or if you have some time on your hands, binge the entire 'Spartacus' franchise.
