The King – Young Henry V

I really do hope that Netflix keeps investing in these historical warrior period pieces. Even if they aren’t as accurate as they could be it’s exciting to see them reenacted on the big screen, including these sequences of the Hundred Years War. Henry V was a short lived ruler but is celebrated as one of the greatest warrior kings of medieval England.

Vikings Season 6 Trailer

How long has it been since we saw any information about this conclusive six season. The show is coming out in December and we haven’t seen any updates to this epic tale. I know the fifth season didn’t get as much acclaim as prior seasons, but I’m still excited to see how they wrap up all these characters stories in the coming twenty episodes.

Kingdom Season 1 Trailer

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.

Knightfall Season 2 Trailers

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.

Outlaw King

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.
