Netflix Is Making a Samurai Version of 'Game of Thrones'

By

Sure, Game of Thrones was fun and all, but it was totally fake. In addition to the political drama and the murdering and the pillaging, there were dragons and magic red women and zombies. That was good for a while, but now you're probably craving something just as dramatic, only rooted in reality.

That's where Netflix's new show comes in. Age of Samurai: Battle for Japan is "a docudrama about the warring kingdoms of feudal Japan that is described as a real-life Game of Thrones," according to Deadline. I'm already into it, but there are even more details to get stoked about.
