Anyone watch this show or the 1982 version? I'm trying to decide between which version to watch. I'm mostly interested in the mongol empire in general.

If anyone knows a series/documentary that focuses on mostly Ghengis, or more specifically Subutai and jebe I'd love to know

Jesus christ. Try reading a book for once.

The Netflix show is entertaining, Kublai is the best part and Marco is easily the worst.

>>64502398
Ok. Any recommendations?

>>64502418
watch the netflix series

If you want anything based anywhere near fact don't watch this. It was fucking terrible and I had high hopes for it.

Netflix one is pretty good, shame it's so underated, it's funny because people were hyping it up for it's diversity, then they didn't actually watch it, typical

>>64502402
Pretty much this

It was going to be a sequel. Those Russians need to whip up their cooky Eurasianists to fund the next two films, those goofs love Genghis.

What didn't you like?

>It was fucking terrible

I just can't imagine someone having such a strong opinion on MP one way or the other. I watched it over the course of two days and basically forgot the whole thing after, very few moments of note for me.

>>64503288
Why do the russians of all people love genghis? I really don't get it
>>
>>64502418
Pic related. It isn't high class literature and history wise it's quite a bit off at times (still way better than that netflix series of course). But if you are interested in mongol culture and how these people might have perceived life it's most definitely worth it.
Subutai is introduced in the second book and becomes a prominent side character. Jebe the third book, but there isn't much focus on him besides that one.

I'll check them out. Appreciate the advice m8

He taught Moscow how build and keep an empire.

Not that Anon, but the series is closer to fantasy than history and it gets very jarring at times. I remember when Marco shows the Khan how to make trebuchets, completely ignoring how the mongols had gotten a hold of this level of siege tech way before Kublai. I couldn't even watch the rest after that. It's a long time since I watched it all but I remember noticing moments like this from start to finish.

And it really was a shame, because the sets were awesome and the guy playing Kublai fitted the role really well I think.

You are most welcome.

Does this shit actually happen? weow

>>64504061
>teaching the mongols how to siege
Might as well teach the fish how to swim, too.

I'm on episode 2 of Marco Polo right now.

Do they ever stop this shaky camera shit? I notice it like crazy on still shots of someone talking but the camera is still just wobbling like mad
