{ Who's ready for more Period Dramas to watch?}

Oh you guys, it's been a hot minute since I've done one of my upcoming Period Dramas posts.  I guess since I wasn't blogging as often, and I wasn't watching as much TV either, it kind of fell to side and I wasn't looking for what is coming up.

But, I've been wanting to get back into my Period Dramas, so went looking to see just what is already released that I have missed, what is releasing soon or towards the end of the year.  And, ohhhhhhh there are some pretty good ones that I am really looking forward to.

Accompanied by Peggy Scott, an aspiring writer seeking a fresh start, Marian inadvertently becomes enmeshed in a social war between one of her aunts, a scion of the old money set, and her stupendously rich neighbors, a ruthless railroad tycoon and his ambitious wife, George and Bertha Russell. Exposed to a world on the brink of the modern age, Marian must choose if she will follow the established rules of society or forge her own path.

  1. Sandra,
    All these look amazing. I plan to watch Downton Tonight. YAY! It was already on my plan!!!
    I am curious about the Gilded Age. It looks like something I would like but I was curious if it was really risky? If you catch my drift. LOL! Let me know if you know. :)

    Some of the others one's sounds great too!

  2. Oooh! You find the best period shows. I'm saving this, because there are several that look so good!

  3. Gilded Age, yes!! I watched the whole first season when it was first on and loved it. I didn't think I was into that era but apparently I am. lol

    I am recording Becoming Elizabeth and will go back and watch them all once the season is complete. I did watch about half of the first episode and struggled with it, but I will give it another chance. It was a little more harsh and aggressive than I was expecting. I absolutely love Tudor history though so I'm hoping I can get into this one.

    A lot of the others you highlighted look interesting but we don't do any of the streaming channels. We live in the country and have rather poor internet. :(

  4. Oh! Forgot to mention, I saw an article last night about a new 'German royals' show coming this fall (I think?). I don't remember the name but it is about Sisi, who was Empress Elisabeth of Austria. She was a cousin and close friend of King Ludwig II of Bavaria. I'm obsessed with Ludwig's story, so I'm also interested in Sisi's story. But of course, it's going to be on Netflix so I won't be able to see it.
