Costume dramas are not just about pretty costumes and lavish settings; they often tackle timeless themes and offer social commentary. Outlander, for example, explores themes of love and loyalty across time, while Peaky Blinders delves into issues of class and power. These shows provide a lens through which we can reflect on our own society and the ways in which it has evolved or remained unchanged over the years. In this way, costume dramas offer a form of cultural critique that is both thought-provoking and entertaining.
