Like Game of Thrones, Camelot also has swords, magic and questionable relationship decisions. In the aftermath of King Uther's death, Merlin attempts to install a well-hidden, but now grown up, Arthur as the new king. Arthur's half-sister, Morgan, has other plans. Arthur restore peace to a divided kingdom when he's up against romantic distractions, political intrigue and unnatural forces? Don't miss this fresh retelling of the legend featuring an all-star cast that includes Joseph Fiennes, Jamie Campbell Bower, Tamsin Egerton, Eva Green, Clair Forlani, and Peter Mooney.
The Tudors is the sexiest version of the story of King Henry VIII and all of the relationships between him, his lovers, his opponents, and allies. It's 4-seasons of totally binge-worthy romance, sex, and political intrigue. In the real-world, these things sometimes overlap. In a good TV series, they always do, and The Tudors doesn't disappoint. So, If you didn't watch The Tudors the first time around, it's definitely worth pouring a large goblet of wine, putting out some candles, and staying up late for.
Jekyll & Hyde
Jekyll & Hyde is a fantasy based loosely on The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson. But this version has two things that old RL Stevenson didn't have: Tom Bateman and Richard E. Grant.
Richard E. Grant!
Jekyll & Hyde, on its release, gained infamy in the UK for it's violent themes shown too early in the evening. But don't let that stop you from binging this 10-episode series about Dr. Jekyll's quest to learn the secret of his family's history, the dark future that awaits him, and the search for a cure to his dangerous affliction.
