It's mostly schmistory. But at least it's not dull.

    Great! Very enjoyable.

    Phenomenal! Excellent historical show that is also exhilarating.
  • Feb 07, 2020
    I want to see more major battles! Bring it on. What a great way to learn history.

    A "heroic" story - 200 thousand ottomans against 10 thousand byzantines.

    This was a really great show. It's in English, so no subtitles to deal with. It's very historically accurate, and doesn't protray either the Christian's or the Muslims as "the good guys" (which apparently has triggered several people who rate it poorly saying it's not historically accurate. Those people are wrong, but oh well), but shows the humanity of both sides. There is some gratuitous love scenes added to make it more theatrical that don't really add anything to the story, but even those aren't overdone.

    Definitely worth watching. The big positive is that it is a Turkish production. This certainly adds authenticity to the series. Lavish in production values and special effects. Charles Dance does a terrific job as a narrator. If it does well, I would think they would be lining up for a second season. Just be warned that this is a docu-drama. I presume some who see the Netflix trailer may not be aware that is a part historical documentary.

    Very exciting to finally see the Ottoman empire on Netflix! also an absolutely brilliant show, the visuals are amazing! and the director didn't change anything from real facts, which is an absolute relief that there weren't any flying dragons...

    It's a fantastic show with high quality production value. A great introduction to a fascinating point in history.

    Good way to learn history!
