Some of the favorite shows I've watched were period reality series. Top 1 was Frontier House. Followed by Texas Ranch House.For some weird reason, I’m really enjoying these on Amazon:
Tudor Monastery Farm
Simple premise of three historians living for a year in “period” lifestyle as farmers. Just calm, happy and really well done.
They are anything but calm. There is a lot of drama between the characters. I feel the producers go out of their way to stir the pot.
Some old threads about that subject...
