The magic of TV is that you're transported to a different place and are introduced to characters you enjoy watching. A period piece transports you to a time you've only read about in a history book. Living with the modern amenities of the 21st century, it's truly fascinating to see the culture of the 1960s or to go as far back to when the world was just being discovered.

A well-done television period drama makes you wish for a simpler time when we weren't so plugged in (but also grateful for things like electricity and cars and women's rights, TBH). Regardless, an intriguing period drama tends to be one of the most thought-provoking glimpses into the past for a true history lover.
