It follows a great British tradition of spending the money on good writing and great acting.

Currently...on a television show yet, we have Cillian Murphy, Aidan GIllan, Tom Hardy and Adrien Brody...Sam Neil was in the first couple seasons. Great show. Love it.

My favorite show right now.

Glad to hear others like it too. I don't think anyone else I know watches it.

I also enjoyed Godless which I just finished.

As a history nut these period pieces usually capture my imagination.
