Corona crisis; which series to watch? Top 5 best historical series

Many great, fun and interesting top-five lists have been released to fill the time we would usually fill with going out and visiting relatives. This great list has been made by Karin Witowski. Enjoy watching!

Everything used to be so much better. Something along those lines is said quite often. But is that even true? In the so-called good old days, there was hardly any healthcare, women didn't have any rights and did I already mention diseases such as the Bubonic plague? Nonetheless, I still enjoy watching historical series and enjoying the romance of that time. Down below, you can find my top-five.

5. The Knick.

A genius, and maybe because of that also disturbed and addicted. Those three words are the perfect way to describe John Thackery. Genius. Disturbed. Addicted. Nonetheless, he managed to become a surgeon at the Knickerbocker hospital in New York in 1900. The Knick is an amazing series, a predecessor to Grey's Anatomy, House M.D. and even ER. How scientific medicine came to be is an interesting topic.

4. Poldark

Captain Ross Poldark comes back to his beloved Cornwell in England, after having fought in the United States for two years. Before he left, he left behind his beloved Elisabeth. Now that he's returned, he finds out that his great love has already forgotten all about him. Elisabeth has promised her heart and loyalty to someone else. Poldark is a wonderful romantic historical series that takes place in eighteenth-century Cornwell.

3. Victoria

Victoria is a historical drama series that tells the tale of the longest-reigning queen of England. On her eighteenth, she became the Queen of England. Unmarried and completely unprepared, she began her life as queen. She fell in love with Albert, whom she eventually married. Victoria is a beautiful drama filled with beautiful costumes, illustrious history. Filled with romantic, dramatic and heartbreaking moments.

2. Outlander

Outlander tells the tale of Claire, a nurse. After the Second World War, she goes on a second honeymoon with her husband, Frank. While she's there, Claire becomes fascinated by a particular set of large standing stones. These miraculously transport her to Scotland back in 1743. Here she meets a tough Scotsman, Jamie Fraser. Claire tries to return to her time, but the history and love for Jamie make her doubt. There's enough Scotland in this series.

1. Vikings

Vikings revolves around the adventures of Ragnar Lothbrok, the biggest hero of his era. The series tells the tale of Ragnar and his sons. Ragnar, who starts as a simple peasant, ends up becoming one of the most well-known Viking kings of all time. Vikings is a beautiful historical tale, which takes you through a time of battles, looting and the cruelty that made Vikings so well-known.

It is so darn difficult to choose between all these different beautiful historical series. How about The Tudors, The Last Kingdom or the amazing war drama Band of Brothers? But don't worry, there will be a lot more top-five lists to fill your time.
