Straight up, the music is on point. Gets you all jacked from the title sequence onward.
loved the first season, absolutely hate season 2 ! the Medici family all look like they belong in Twilight and will turn into vampires at any moment while their arch enemy the Pazzi family look like a pack of ware wolfs lol, ruined the show.
The music is definitely praiseworthy and creates just the right mood and atmosphere. As a period drama, fantasy show, historical inaccuracies aside, they don't claim its a documentary, this is quite a gripping show. In fact I like historical inaccuracies in these shows, without them and without the writers creating fiction, there'd be little suspense and no surprises. :)
I really liked it, it forced me to read more about the characters in real life. I liked how they defined the last chapter of the third season.
I'm so disappointed by this show. Could not even finish the first season.
This was basically Days of our Lives in tights. If you want a hey-nonny-nonny series, watch Da Vinci.
Watching royalty can sometimes make us feel like we are a part of royalty, but it also shows that being a leader usually isn’t as easy as it could seem. So, if you want to experience a lot of unpredictable drama with stunning scenery, clothes and visuals in general, these may be a few good choices for you:
Don’t know about you, but since the lockdown, I have had more free time than ever. Maybe it’s because we did not actually realize how much time we were wasting. So the other day, whilst I was pouring myself a glass of wine, I remembered how much I love and missed genre “Fantasy”. It was my favorite genre since growing up, maybe because I was too much into Avatar, but yeah I miss it. So today let’s talk about best fantasy TV shows.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.
But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈
I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…
I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
