User Reviews

 
A historical fantasy with a modern tone that maintains historical authenticity without feeling bland.
19 October 2020 | by BIGDAWWG-77420See all my reviews

Britannia, a historical fantasy that doesn't take itself too seriously. Having modern dialogue and music whilst maintaining historical authenticity makes this show a unique breath fresh air. Most antiquity period pieces have trouble keeping a consistently entertaining narrative as the creators allow the history they're working with to restrain themselves into a box, resulting in a bland cinema experience. Britannia thinks outside the box, using fun familiar dialogue rather than the Shakespearian way of conversing as most period pieces do. A key to creating a compelling historical narrative one must use history as a guide, not a bible, and Britannia executes this fabulously.
