Serious Jest: (Watch it Live) Martial arts, political maneuvering, military strategy, philosophy, sex, romance, culture clashes, and issues of family, dynasty, and pride…amongst more. This series has it all. Wonderfully acted and masterfully directed. Storytelling at its top level. This show makes me want to research history to learn how close to the real events this series depicted…but not until after the show is over. Wouldn’t want to spoil any future episodes for myself!
