So when I read lately, it’s been non-fiction, about fiber or Bohemia in the 1350’s. Speaking of the middle ages, Netflix has a lovely short series called Pillars of the Earth.  It’s based on the Ken Burns book, Pillars of the Earth, but most likely much shorter.  No ‘name’ actors that I was aware of, but the acting was good and the story smooth, in spite of covering decades. And yes, I know many cathedrals took well over 100 years to complete, but it made the story better having the same people complete the work.  Power, politics, royalty, duplicity, battles; everything you could want in a drama, and it was short enough that you weren’t overwhelmed, even if you got all 8 episodes at once.
