Ripper Street and steampunk
I talked recently about the Canadian show Murdoch's Mysteries as an entertaining exploration of late Victorian Toronto, which is not exactly steam punk but close enough. I am now watching Ripper Street, which like the Canadian series is about the late 19th century and is not exactly steampunk but shares Murdoch mysteries fascination with new technology and science. The fascination of a variety of creative people with the modernity of the late 19th century and the early 20th is fascinating to me!
