Roots miniseries, episode one - A beautiful plantation that I can take little pleasure in. 

This garden doesn't hold a candle to the one in Outlander, but it is lovely nonetheless.  However, the whole point of the show is to remind you that slaves prune those shrubs, so it feels wrong to appreciate them. 

Notice that the garden is only symmetrical in one direction.  It so easily could have been "perfect", but is just a little off to keep things interesting.
