| Very Good Historical TV Series
Very interesting, nicely-made, and mostly historically accurate TV series about the lives King Henry II of England, his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine and his sons, including King Richard I (Lionheart) and King John I (Lackland). This series includes thirteen 50-minutes episodes covering the rise and fall of the Angevin Empire from 1150 when young Henry and his father Goeffrey Count of Anjou visit Paris and first meet with Eleanor of Aquitaine, then Queen of France, to 1216 with the death of King John. There are essentially no outdoor scenes in this series and it is most often much more akin to a theater play than a movie or even a TV show. Decors are highly stylized and patterned after the illustrations of medieval manuscripts. Nevertheless the acting and dialogs are excellent and the show always captivates your attention with the intricacies and deviousness of medieval politics.
