Name: Have Gun will Travel
Rating: Five star. (is an ancient black and white series)
Setting: The Old West in America
Accuracy: average
Acting: excellent
Writing: excellent
Eye Candy: Excellent, plenty of very beautiful women with a lot of them becoming famous actresses.
Family Friendliness: completely FF, just has some racism mainly in The Hop Sing character - so don't watch with Hans/Chinese.
Hop Sing was on BONANZA. The Asian lead on HGWT was named Hey Boy/ Kim Chan.

Thank you for the correction, but apart from Hey Boy being more of a real person they were both bad Racial characters of Hans.

One of my person favorites is Borgia. The Canal+ version with John Doman as Alexander VI, not Jeremy Irons and Showtime. The Canal version is far superior in terms of accuracy and overall feel to the time period.

I pretty much agree with all your choices especially I Claudius (Derek Jacobi rocks!!!) and so did Jeremy Brett. The best Sherlock ever!

It's partly about the Anarchy in England but also involves a fictional story of commoners and the building of a cathedral.
