Netflix‘s newest attempt to out-history is Rise of Empires: Ottoman. That’s not a difficult task; thus far, the streaming service has given us things like the Roman Empire series and Greatest Events of WWII in Color, which display a modicum of interest in historical events, while History continues its ahistorical examinations of ghosts, mothmen, bigfeet, marshmallow men, Tralfamadorians, and massive vehicles traveling over thin ice. Turkish producer Ottoman combines lavish reenactments with documentary elements, much like the Roman Empire did.
