Oooohhhhh Yes!!!! The final chapter is only months away and I’m ready for its epic conclusion of fire and ice coming to a head.
It’s back and it’s binge worthy. The problem being that it is always over to fast and then it’s back to the waiting game of when will it return. Luckily the release of the next chapter of Vikings drops in two days.
I always find it strange when I start questioning something like why no one has made a film or show about Robert the Bruce, especially after Braveheart’s success, and then I come to find that since August Netflix has been posting trailers about this upcoming film in November. Whhhhaaaattttt???? Now I wish they had made this into a gritty ten episode show, but beggars can’t be choosers. It’s already getting poor reviews but the historical accuracy and the battle sequences look great in the trailer, so I’m ready to sit back and enjoy.
I was hard pressed to find a home page for this Swiss illustrator that captivated me with his amazing accuracy. He’s the first historical illustrator that I’ve seen describe himself as a Scientific Illustrator. His focus is historical building reconstructions and archaeological biographies. You can find reference to his current credentials here.
If you have a chance to find this show with the subtitles of your language I highly recommend this period piece. Not necessarily a warrior film, but the gritty dark reality of Seville Spain during the 16th century is enthralling. The contrast of the riches of the America’s arriving in Europe with the desperation of the poor and this plague filled city make for a scary backdrop for this murder mystery. Enjoy!
