The history jam-packed month continues, from the Roman Empire, Trojan War, to World War II. Here’s our top TV series for March.
(Last month’s #5). “Knightfall drops this month to number 10 just because of the sheer number of good shows in this list. This series is an interesting take on the history of the Knights Templar, “Knightfall” is an engaging series, a combination of “Merlin” and “Marco Polo.” Tom Cullen’s acting here is superb. He plays as Landry de Lauzon, the master of the Knights Templar in France, and while this bit of France’s history under King Philip is not that fun, the mystery surrounding the Holy Grail will keep the audience glued on their screens.
#9 The Last Czars
(Last month’s #7). Who says documentary and drama could not work well? “The Last Czar” is pretty hard to sell what with the story being unknown compared to other series of this type. But the narrations help a lot in bringing this piece of history into life.
(New Entry). A growing number of Roman Empire-based series is being made available in Netflix and “Spartacus” is among those legit enough to deserve some viewing. This series brings you a bit of history, fight scenes, intrigue, and a lot of naked bodies.
#7 Hitler’s Circle of Evil
(New Entry). While most World War II documentaries focused on the battles during the war, “Hitler’s Circle of Evil” delves into the men which made it possible for Hitler to come to power, and maintain it. Fresh information that you’ve never read in any history books will keep you glued on screen.
#6 Greatest Events of World War II in Colour
(Last month’s #3). The fun thing about this series is not that it managed to colorized Normandy beach (good to know the water is blue) which is oddly weird, but the narrations of experts which details some of the stuff we didn’t know about World War II.
#5 The Liberator
(Last month’s #8). The series keeps getting interesting as the episodes progress. I’m still annoyed that I can’t get to see Bradley James in full view, the series being animated, but the interesting life story of Felix Sparks and his men is reason enough to keep the audience going.
#4 Troy: Fall of a City
(Last month’s #4). I’m not going to lie, Louis Hunter is the most handsome actor to play Paris, to date. Paris is being shed into some good spotlight here which is good. With the Greek gods and demigods and heroes battling it out in Troy, this series sure is addicting.
#3 Rise of Empires: Ottoman
(Last month’s #2). Cem Yiğit Üzümoğlu played Mehmed really well with a deep understanding of the historical figure. The narratives and commentaries from experts and historians keep the series interesting to watch. Unlike other docuseries produced by other countries, “Rise of Empires: Ottoman” is surprisingly balanced and factual in presenting the Fall of Constantinople.
#2 Tokyo Trial
(New Entry). Tokyo Trial” tried to walk the narrow path of balancing the views of the victors and the war criminals. The good thing about the series is it gave a rare glimpse of the trial which is not as discussed compared to the infamous Nuremberg Trials.
#1 Roman Empire
(Last month’s #6). We’re into Caligula’s story now which is the most interesting story in the anthology. Surprisingly. Season 2 featuring Julius Caesar is as good as it can get, with the Ides of March of course. But the detailed narration of the experts, some never heard information about the emperor, and the battles presented make it the top series this month. There’s also Brutus and Marc Anthony!
