    You can use The Americans for 1981-1982 and 1987 since you have most of the decade already. Masters of Sex covered the mid 1950s into the 1960s, but I’m not sure if you’re trying to have each season only be a contained year.
     
  3. We can have multiple seasons per year, and multiple years per season. Pretty sure each season of Fargo jumps around quite a bit, haven't gotten to putting that in.

    Everything Sucks is 1996, PEN15 is 2000, Freaks and Geeks is 1980-1981. This is fun.

    AHS and ACS are good choices for sure. Lots of options.

  9. So Ryan Murphy's stuff would look something like this? I think for the majority of AHS seasons, the main storyline takes place the year they're released. I don't know if I want to get into flashbacks.

    1997 American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace
    1995 American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson
    1990 Pose
    1988 Pose
    1964 American Horror Story: Asylum
    1952 American Horror Story: Freak Show
     
  10. Would Sopranos fit between 99 and 07? Idk if it qualifies, they would put in references from current events and pop culture sorta but maybe not enough.
     
  11. If it takes place the year it's released I don't think it counts as a period piece?

    Nah, that’s not a period piece, it’s just an older show.
     
  13. Oh yeah derp lol. All the ones I know have already been said so I was reachin

    I thought of adding The Americans and The Crown (and Masters of Sex, Glow, and The Deuce), but I don't want to do research for shows I intend to but haven't seen yet, so if y'all could break those down that would be great.

    Also the rest of Mad Men.
     
  15. Downton Abbey but I never watched it. Im trying to help!

    The Americans is 1981-1984 and then skips to 1987. The Crown I’ll need to look up because it covers a lot of flashbacks in addition to the main setting.
     
  17. What about lost tho ;)
     
  18. I'm still wondering if I should do flashbacks because Fargo is all over the place, and with AHS Roanoke the bulk of it takes place in 2014-16.

    I wouldn’t consider something like Roanoke, but things like The Crown are a little trickier because they have a lot of focus on the different timelines instead of just brief moments going back wards.
