5.0 out of 5 stars BUY THIS DVD!!!!!! 29 May 2011
By Yorkney
Format:DVD
If you appreciate witty, intelligent, ingenious comedy - this is for you.
My children love HH; they learn, laugh and and enjoy every sketch.
Truly brilliant, a BBC programme made how they used to be, before the onslaught of real-life/celebrity dross.
There isn't one part of this DVD that doesn't disappoint - well done to all involved with it.
Can't wait for Series 3!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best thing on the small screen, bar none! 30 Jun 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
HELLO! I'm a Shouty Man, and I'm here to tell you about ... the superb creation that is the BBC's Horrible Histories.

The cast clearly have as much fun making this programme as we do watching it. The songs are gems in their own right. From Charles II rapping about the Reformation, to the rock ballad Vikings, there is much that adults can learn as well as their children.

This is history made wonderfully accessible, yet not dumbed down. Series one was a triumph, and series two is every bit as good.

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 out of 10 24 Jun 2011
By Petra Bryce VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
If series 1 was very good, this one is even better, a truly excellent piece of television, clever and funny in equal measures. We enjoy the programmes as a family: my husband and I, and our two sons (nearly 9 and 3 years old). Even our youngest sings "Stupid deaths, stupid deaths...". Our particular favourites are the brilliant Savage Songs, some of them absolute classics (Spartan School Musical, Viking rock ballad, Charles II rap, Pachacuti, Boudicca, ...), and we're working hard to know all the lyrics off by heart. Learning about history has never been so cool or this much fun. Horrible Histories alone is worth the licence fee in my opinion, well done to all the writers, cast and crew involved, we would like to nominate you for every television award going! Keep up the good work, and we look forward to series 3, 4 and 5!

5.0 out of 5 stars Class Act! 4 Jun 2011
Format:DVD
I did a review for the first series so I shall do one for this one:
Why I love Horrible Histories?
Well, I am into history, I have even got a diary account of a family of the war of the roses, and lots of other stuff. Although my specialty is European 20th century history I do love all the older stuff.
A big fan of Time Team, Maid Marion and Her Merry Men, and Blackadder this is just the natural progression from those three gems of the past.

I love Simon Farnaby in Stupid Deaths and his Caligula is suitably mad and funny.
Ben Willbond is hilarious as Henry the 8th.
Jim Howick's truthful rendition of Richard The Third is genius
And Lawrence Rickard's Bob Hale is amazing and yes possibly the one thing that really has me in stitches.

The only disappointing thing about this and series 3 is the notable absence of Sarah Hadland. And Meera Syal! But then I suppose the former has moved on to Miranda which is almost as good. At least Martha Howe Douglas has stayed.

All my family love this show and I am the youngest in the house and I am 30!

But what really makes me laugh are the songs. I love writing and poetry and wish I could write funny, wonderful and factual stuff like this!

Series 3 has proved that this show is not a one-off and hope that it continues longer than Maid Marion did!

By the way Matthew Baynton if you're reading this - I think you're gorgeous!
