There is certain magic around period dramas that derives our inner urge of leaving everything and transport ourselves into the good Victorian age. There is so much to learn and love from period dramas.
You know, the kind of thing where you get to learn about how life was back in the day, and you can feel like you’re right there with everyone else.
You might not be able to go through the hardship of living in a time long ago, but at least you can watch it on screen and pretend that you are!
But unless you’re watching a movie or TV show set in the past—like Game of Thrones or The Crown—you may not know much about what it felt like to live in those times.
And that’s why we love them so much! They give us a chance to be transported back in time without having to actually leave our homes and go all the way back there ourselves.
If you understood the feeling completely, then this period drama will surely make a place in your favourite shows.
