Best FX Shows

The FX network, standing for Fox Extended (sort of works), is owned by Fox, but don't expect Fox News values here. We're talking Russian spies (The Americans), satanism (American Horror Story), and cohabitation (You're the Worst).

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 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 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)?

Kurt Sutter's World

The writer and producer who brought you Sons of Anarchy has some other past and future shows worth checking out.

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.
