'Rome'...one of my all-time favorite tv series, based on one of my favorite preoccupations (Roman history). History, drama, intrigue, passion, warfare, and the struggle for power...this series has it all.
The Fringe. A television drama centered around a female FBI agent who is forced to work with an institutionalized scientist in order to rationalize a brewing storm of unexplained phenomena. The series is reminiscent of the X-Files, and deals with scientific themes that incorporate time travel, quantum physics and entanglement, multiple universes, and more.
