One thing is certain during the summer, and that’s the fact that some of the greatest shows and movies will be coming out for viewers to take note of. Does anyone remember when summer was mostly about reruns when it came to TV? Well The Last Czars is anything but a rerun and it’s going to be coming soon enough that it will be capable of entertaining those that want to see a story concerning the fate of Russia back in the post-World War I days, when the rule of the czars was starting to crumble and the unrest in Russia was growing exponentially. Life had become a constant struggle for many people and the overall feeling within the country was that change was needed. As much as the people wanted things to move along and get better however the czars wanted it to stay the same, though thanks to history we know how that went.
Here are a few reasons why you should watch The Last Czars.
10. It might inspire people to learn their history.
A lot of Europeans can proudly state the history of their respective countries and tend to think Americans are a bit foolish for not knowing theirs. But it’s also true that some folks have forgotten these days or never learned much about them to start with, so it might be time for a quick review before or after watching the show.
9. It’s something to watch while waiting for The Crown to start back up.
A lot of folks are waiting for the third season of The Crown to come and are no doubt looking for something similar that might whet their appetite and keep them ready for whatever might come. This would be one of the most perfect shows for such a thing as it could keep them entertained and in the right frame of mind.
8. The show focuses on the true story of the Romanov dynasty.
At one time the monarchy was quite powerful and it did manage to last for a long, long time. But change eventually sweeps through every nation and while the people were clambering for a revolution the rulers of the country were doing their best to keep hold of what they had. As Mangala Dilip of Meaww has said it also details their deaths and how they came about.
7. Expert historians were brought in to make sure the show was accurate.
A few people might scoff at the word ‘expert’ since anyone can call themselves an expert and still get things horribly wrong. But it would appear that the show is benefiting from the inclusion of historians that want to see the story told as it happened with only a moderate amount of tinkering to make it more appealing to an audience.
6. The use of many bad omens that led to the belief that the Romanov’s were no longer fit to rule is compelling.
People are always paying attention to certain things that seem as though they might indicate that something is fated, something is wrong, or something is bound to go right, and back in those days the old superstitions were still quite strong. So it’s actually kind of nice to see the show play on these ideas that fate is inescapable and can’t be denied once it shows itself in so many different ways.
5. It brings to light more about the individual known as Rasputin.
There are so many legends concerning Rasputin that it seems as though he’s more of a supernatural entity than a man, but thankfully this show goes into greater detail concerning just who he was, what he did, and, as Quinn Keaney of PopSugar indicates, what part he played in the fall of the dynasty.
4. The show is going to start up on July 3rd.
Thankfully the show is going to start sooner rather than later so it will give a lot of people that are looking for something to watch a pleasing time and a show that will keep them entertained for a while until their favorites start up again.
3. As a documentary series it will be narrated by various individuals.
The narration aspect seems like something that might be interesting to pay attention to since it seems that this is an effective way to get the story across and to make sure that no one is left in the dark wondering just what’s going on while the show is rolling.
2. This might put certain stories that have already been seen in perspective.
There are a lot of stories that have made it to the screen concerning Russia and its rulers throughout the years and there have been several that have featured Rasputin. This show will no doubt put to rest some rumors and allow people to become better informed as they’re being entertained.
1. It simply looks like an interesting show.
So far it does seem like it will be a good show to watch in order to pass the time.
It seems a bit dark and gritty, but with good reason.
