Here's a trailer of the show
Diriliş Ertuğrul is a Turkish historical adventure television series that takes place in the 13th century and centers around the life of Ertuğrul, the father of Osman I, founder of the Ottoman Empire and focuses on the kayı tribe.
With the Mongol invasions, oppression and slaughters, Turkic tribes flee from Central Asia. The Kayi tribe is one of Oghuz Turkic people with four hundred large nomad tents settling in Anatolia. But they get through a difficult time due to famine. All these nomads want to migrate to a better place where they can start a new life. Suleyman Shah is the leader of the Kayi tribe and his two sons Gündoğdu and Ertuğrul are reliable to him.
Ertuğrul, a young brave man and the younger son of Suleyman Shah. He often goes hunting with his three close men. One of these days they come across prisoners taken by the knights of the Knights Templar. Ertuğrul and his three men save the lives of a young girl named Halime and her family from the knights and kill them all. They bring them to their tribe without knowing their true identity. Halime and her family belong to a noble family of the Seljuk Empire and were to be executed if Ertuğrul did not save them. Due to the fear of being caught, they do not reveal their true identity. However, their arrival brings new difficulties to the Kayi tribe: the Seljuk Empire is threaten to have war if they do not let their guests go and the Knights Templar is seeking for revenge. For this reason some nomads start to blame Suleyman Shah for not being able to be a good leader. This suits up well for Kurdoğlu, swore brother of Suleyman Shah, who has a hidden agenda. Suleyman Shah takes action and sends Ertuğrul on a vital mission for finding new land. For this reason, Ertuğrul and his three men go to Aleppo in order to make an agreement with the Sultan. They set off a chain of events that ultimately will lead to the founding of the Ottoman Empire.
>Good shows about history
Tudor Monastery Farm, Edwardian Farm, Wartime Farm, Victorian Pharmacy and all the others in this set.
Experimental archaeology, mostly about english history. It stays away from politics and gets into the everyday lives of people. Very fun to watch.
Vikings was okay-ish. It got the feeling right, even if it strays away from the sagas and gets silly to win the 21 century audiences.
I just watched a documentary series called 'First Peoples' iirc. There were episodes about Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Americas. Very well produced, and the Asian episode was especially interesting since that's often overlooked.
Black Sails is pretty good. While it's written as a prequel to Treasure Island and has several fictional main characters, it also contains many real historical figures and is a very accurate portrayal of 18th century pirates.
Also Narcos. Narcos is just fucking great. They include archival footage of actual events to remind people that "Yes, Pablo Escobar actually did bomb a passenger jet and he did orchestrate an assault on the Supreme Court of Colombia."

Are you fucking serious?
Nope, live action.
It is a kids-young adult show obviously, but it's good fun. Indy meets all kinds of historical personages and witnesses interesting events. It has two... seasons? Two parts basically, one is Indy as a small kid, another is Indy as a young man - he fights in WW1 for example.
Definitely recommend, I think it is quite faithful to the whole Indiana Jones adventure atmosphere, as well as fun way of looking at history.
Ha ha it is on youtube of all places!
Poor quality though.
Just bear in mind it is a kids' show and the first third or so has a kid actor.
Check the IMDB page - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103586/fullcredits?ref_=tt_cl_sm#cast - to see all the various people Indy meets. From Mata Hari to Freud to Churchill to Kafka...
There are more places to watch it actually, you can google "Dirilis Ertugrul english subs" or "Dirilis Ertugrul Ingilizce Altyazi" and it comes up. its on youtube too but 460p quality. This one has more action and its based around the nomadic life, magnificent century was based within the palace so you can figure out which is more a bore fest
Some of the action scenes are a bit rough, but it's a fine show.
Ok so I was watching the first episode and had to drop it.
It's waay too muslim-y too me. God this,God that and not to mention that christians are cartoonishly evil.
I find it weird that Turkey is making TV Shows that paint their european allies as evil while they are victims fighting for freedom.
Turks often make themselves look evil in their tv shows actually, there's a pride in Turkey for the amount of anger and frustration they caused others. I'm not kidding.
Also check out these really short trailer clips to understand what I mean about Turks painting themselves in a bad light
(in the end of this one she says "I will escape from here, you'll see!" and the guy replies "there is no escape.")
In this show the Greek girl is played by an actual Greek btw. In Dirilis the Christians are played by westerners also btw.
Casual. Watch some real conspiracy theory garbage.
i watched that show once. they tried to push the idea that patton was murdered because he wanted to kill soviets. the only person who though so was some /x/ fag who said Stalin ordered it or some shit.
