Middle Ages (1992– )
The show was picked up for 10 episodes straight-to-series in January 2016, signifying History's confidence in the Jeremy Renner-executive produced project, despite a massive set fire halfway through filming, and a Welsh actor who auditioned for the role of a warrior monk looking "like a mix between a gerbil and a Christmas pudding."
"Honestly, I looked like a turkey!" Cullen boldly confesses to Et after a night out promoting the show in Los Angeles. "I had just come out of Christmas, and I just looked like Christmas, do you know what I mean? I was the human equivalent of Christmas, so I had to do a lot of work in order to make myself look like a knight."
The actor was in the gym five hours a day for three months "to make myself look less [like a] turkey" before filming

One of the standards of medieval storytelling is the concept of the Wheel of Fortune. Unlike modern uses of the trope, where every new endeavour is subject to the unpredictable whims of Fortune (a turn of the wheel), in the Middle Ages, the Wheel represented the cycle of fate on a larger scale. It was a reminder that no matter what a character’s current status, the wheel kept inexorably turning, dragging down the highest and raising the lowest.
And so, if seasons one through three of Vikings were largely the

The Knights Templar were the most powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages, entrusted with protecting Christianity’s most prized relic—the Holy Grail—and harboring secrets capable of great destruction.
Knightfall goes deep into the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks. From their battles in the Holy Land, to their complex relationship with the King of France, to the betrayal that would ultimately lead to their tragic dissolution, the story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now.
Knightfall is set to premiere on December 6th.

The iconic Enter The Dragon came with a tie-in book that was a bestseller. We took a look...
Enter The Dragon needs no introduction. 40+ years on and its imagery is still the first thing that springs to mind when most people think 'kung fu'. Bruce Lee’s physicality in the film is off the scale, staging and performing some of the best, most brutal and impactful onscreen fights ever. Jim Kelly oozes Blaxploitation cool. Lalo Schifrin’s orientalist funk soundtrack is the height of 70s chic. The movie looks great, sounds great and hits hard.
However, you’ll rarely hear much praise for the plot. Lee plays, uh, 'Lee', a shaolin monk who’s hired by a British intelligence agency to infiltrate the island stronghold of a rogue shaolin called Han, who’s into human trafficking, drug running and world domination. It’s awkwardly structured and more
One of the earliest scary clown movies, The Man Who Laughs was also an influence on the creation of Batman villain, The Joker...
Clowns, both creepy and, well, slightly less creepy, were lurking about in the shadows for thousands of years before Stephen King’s evil clown Pennywise shambled along with those sinister red balloons of his. The Egyptians had them, the Greeks had them, the Romans had them. But in the 17th and 18th centuries, an interesting and telling thing happened.

During the Middle Ages, the clown and the performing freak were essentially one and the same. The jesters and fools who entertained in the royal courts of Europe were usually attired in flamboyant and garish costumes and makeup, and were often physically deformed in some way. After that, however, the two began to tear themselves apart, with the
Congratulations, citizens of Westeros, on your newfound ability to teleport!
Even though “Game of Thrones” takes place in a setting that is technologically equivalent to the Middle Ages, the Westerosi have apparently cracked the code on instantaneous travel. Perhaps we should pray to the God of the Seven ourselves.
But seriously, we’ve already gone on about the ridiculously fast travel time for many of these cross-country and maritime journeys on the show. What it comes down to is lazy writing. In the past, whole seasons were dedicated to following characters’ lives on the road, such as when Arya (Maisie Williams) was escaping from Winterfell
