Do You Prefer Period Pieces or Contemporary Retellings?

Showtime announced this week that it's staying in business with the folks behind The Tudors, commissioning them to pull together a new version of the Camelot story. Unlike the ornate period drama of The Tudors, however, this one is meant to be a modern, contemporary take on the story.

Contemporary retellings can be a more accessible way into a timeless story (10 Things I Hate About You's new spin on Shakespeare) or add a new twist to a tale we've all heard before (NBC's upcoming Kings, based on David and Goliath). But sometimes, I just want to sit down and watch some good, ol' fashioned history. Which is more appealing to you?
