I don't watch that much TV. I find it mostly full of shows I don't want to watch. But when I find a show I love, I love it hard, and forever. I am always in the mood to watch an episode of these shows.
HBO made 2 seasons of this show, from 2005 to 2007. Then they ran out of money for it. Of course I loved it but I'm not the only one. If you like period shows, you might love this show. The sets were beyond my imagination. The wardrobe, the hair, the everything. And then a not too fictionalized story about Julius Caesar- it's like it was made for me. The second season goes downhill a bit, but it's excellent tv.
Almost as good with it's strength as a period show, this story is so rich and layered and fascinating. I mean there are millions of words in several books to snuggle yourself in. Not to mention hours of podcasts every week. I'm very in love with it - not just the show but the whole story. I hope it will all end in a satisfying way.
Yes I know this is not a good show but I can't help but love it. How many things have been a part of my life since I was in single digits? I have often said I was done watching it but I've always gone back. If I didn't stop when Luke left, I'll never stop. I'll watch this show until they stop making it, and maybe after that I'll keep it going with my own fan fiction.
This show was a little too dark and creepy, but I will always be a fan of ancient secret societies whose job it is to keep humanity safe. Roosters Vs Crows was my favorite episode. Terry O'Quinn in two other shows I loved a lot (but ended too horribly for me to remain a fan of); Alias and Lost.
The Doctor, especially in the past, is the greatest hero of all time. Not only does he save people and planets and universes, he makes everybody want to be a better person. What's better than that.
