Out of the four new dramas that take place in the past, the one that interests me the most is Deutschland 83. It is a German show and I believe it will be subtitled. All the trailers were sneaky and not showing anyone talking, but it is like The Americans, but in Germany. Also, New Order was played in the trailer so that wins me over. PBS has The Crimson Field and Poldark which both aired on BBC already. Finally, I like the premise of The Astronaut Wives Club, but it looks pretty boring.
