Do you prefer historical dramas or those set in the present day?
Although I personally enjoy historical dramas, many people I know find them dull and would prefer to watch television series that are set in more modern times.
Do you enjoy the glimpse into the past that historical dramas provide, or do you generally prefer programs that are set in the present day? Why is this?

Personally, I have no preference as long as the the story is well done. Give me a good story, decent effects and decent acting and I'm hooked.
It depends on how it is done -I do not have a preference -love the old costumes in the historical ones, however also love the modern ones, if they are well done.
So could not say which one I prefer
I love historical dramas. I love the glimpse into history that these shows provide!
I think it really depends on the mood/theme of the show, but overall I think I would go for a historical show.
I enjoy historical dramas, but I wach more dramas set in the present day.
As long as the acting, script, costumes, & location are top-notch.
I like present day drams the best, but I have watched a few period shows in the past.
