November 16, 2020
Barbarians ticks all the fighting and bonking boxes a modern audience expects. But it is also a nice lesson in how graft and research can lead to a show with durability and a real story to tell.

Barbarians is nothing we haven't seen before, but it'll quench your bloodthirst, and it's good for a guffaw or two.
