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.

Shows Like Reign: Getting in with the Courtiers

If you're a fan of childish monarchs and tittering courtesans, then these court dramas are for you...not to be confused with court dramas about our democratic legal system, something which would make these aristocrats vomit on their perfumed lap-dogs.

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.

Best Period Dramas

A list of the highest-rated period dramas spanning across eras and countries, although the UK is particularly well represented.

Shows like The Tudors: British Royals Through the Ages

While it hasn't strictly speaking been the same family ruling throughout all of British history, each generation has its own set of equally intriguing power struggles, scandals, and love-stories.

Shows Like The Borgias: Renaissance Women and Men

These renaissance men and women know how to paint, hunt, write, engineer, and most importantly from the producers' perspective - engage in drawn out sex scenes. Who knew the past was so steamy!
