To clarify, not the modern soaps stuff, but set during the Zhou(Chinese) or Jung(Korean) dynasties. Somewhere between 250 and 1000 BC. I was watching one yesterday and the scene was the Chinese Imperial Palace of the Empress around 650 AD. As I looked across the grounds of the palace setting I could see in the background 2 high speed trains passing. WOW...they were much further along with mass transit than I knew.
EDIT: No replies and almost no looks. I must be the only one that likes this stuff....

Handy ....What I am watching is really for the most part, fictional in nature, although some of the characters and certainly the dynasties did actually exist. The beauty is I don't feel compelled to try and remember all the characters since there is no test. Unless I find something really noteworthy I just enjoy the program. As a "keeper of odd knowledge" sometimes I get to use something I learned that I otherwise would not have known had I not watched. That makes it a 2fer.
worksforme2, I dip into some history because I want to know what happened to the people, was it good or bad for the common man and woman, how the leaders succeeded in gaining power, and what happened to the area/country in later years.
There have been some powerful countries and men that seemed to have it all and then something happened and it was all lost or only a fraction of what it used to be.

worksforme2: Tamara answered me yesterday. She and her partner are moving into a house next week. It's probably about as good as is possible. She didn't comment on the situation with her daughter.
