If you haven’t given this historical fictitious Korean zombie apocalypse show a try I recommend it. While there are definitely aspects of it that could be improved the mixture of genres fit my fancy, as well as those of my female roommates. Swords and zombies that make ladies want to watch more says it all.
I’m intrigued to see how this story line progresses. The Templar’s have a wealth of history and lore that surrounds them, so it seems like the writers and directors could go deep into this Orders European defining moments if they wished. Cross my fingers that they step it up a notch from season one.
Update: Unfortunately this production didn’t step it up with the second seasons and instead floundered at best and failed overall. It’s a bummer because there aren’t that many of these period pieces and I wished they’d done better.
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. (It was renewed for a fourth season.) 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.
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!
This isn’t the typical time period I follow or post on this site, but I always appreciate a heroes story told in a unique time period that doesn’t get produced as much. There is something intriguing because the fictitious story sheds light on something important in the past. Even if the facts aren’t complete or warped to fit a certain view point it still gives me something to chew on after the film. I look forward to watching this one when it comes out.
