Like so many science-fiction shows of the past such as STAR TREK or SPACE 1999, which sometimes borrowed heavily from the PEPLUM genre, either with costumes, themes or gladiatorial action, the Canadian-made series STARLOST follow the trend: borrowing from the past to make it more sci-fi. These screenshots are just a small sample of obvious examples. BTW, the story of STARLOST was about a massive spaceship with an endless number of biospheres with different stages or periods or cultures of Earth, which partially explains the PEPLUM inspired look in certain episodes.

You got a lot of that sort of thing on the old Doctor Who series as well.
