Hello and welcome back to Thursday Movie Picks, the weekly series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves where you share three movies to fit the theme of the week each Thursday.
Closing the month of March is another television edition, Period Dramas to be precise. A genre I am not very familiar with. So it was a really tough week for me, but I didn't give up and I managed to pick not just three shows, but three awesome shows, hoping that they fall into the period Drama category.
Set in the early 20th century, it sees Agatha Christie's enigmatic and eccentric detective Hercule Poirot solving a crime mystery, mostly murders, for a paying client. I grew up watching this and I absolutely loved David Suchet as Poirot.
Medici: Masters of Florence (2016- )
Set in Florence in the early 15th century, after the death of his father, Cosimo de' Medici finds himself the helm of his dynasty family and must find out who killed his father in order to protect the power of the family. I'm not going to lie, I watched this for Richard Madden. But it turned out to be a very engrossing drama with great performances and very beautiful to look at.
Peaky Blinders (2013- )
Set in the early 20th century, it follows Tommy Shelby and his gangster family challenged by the arrival of a ruthless copper who wants to clean up the city. Like above, I decided to watch it because of Cillian Murphy, but I fall in love with it. The script is fantastic and so is the setting. The performance from Murphy and Sam Neill are phenomenal, but my favourite part is the music, one of the best soundtracks I've ever heard in a TV series.
