I was raised on these and I am sad that they are no longer really made - I love the idea of having something be a complete story told over a few weeks. Mainly this is because I have the attention span of a cat with ADD. Yesterday I bought Masada, an epic tale of Romans being Romans* and a bunch of people in a mountain fortress who, despite having a wealth of experience with the Romans, seem to believe that if they defeat this particular bunch then all will be okay and they can go back to living their lives. That's the triumph of hope over experience. IT'S GOING TO BE EPIC.

ETA; Also, does anyone remember that endless mini-series Amerika, about the Russians conquering America because the Americans had apparently forgotten how to be patriotic?


*Which is to say: conquering people and then being annoyed they can't see the benefits of being ruled by Rome. And killing a few of them to make a point. And then killing a lot more to make the same point, because you can't be too careful
