Are tv shows the same as tv series? If yes, I like The Game of Thrones.Not as good as Roma, from the same producers I suppose, but the best thing that can be seen in television today.Of course, with popularity, it will dive into an insupportable pastiche of itself.
You could claim that A Song of Ice and Fire/The Game of Thrones is already a pastiche of the War of the Roses and other English and European history (and beyond to Asia and Africa). Westeros is a kind of a Late Medieval Europe with the sex, violence, and treachery dialled up. If you like sexed-up history like Rome and sexed-up pseudo-history like GoT, as do I, you would probably enjoy series like The Tudors and The Borgias as well.
Roman society, not to speak of Medieval European society in most centuries, was allegedly fairly puritan and hypocritical, and not the sequence of Roman orgies and debaucheries fantasised about, just like rock'n'roll usually isn't as rock'n'roll as legend would have it.
