5.0 out of 5 stars Got to be the funniest thing on TV..., 11 Dec 2010
By 
This review is from: Horrible Histories - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
This series really is brilliant, probably the best children's programme we've had in ages. Although the original series of the 'Horrible Histories' books were good too (but I don't think kids really can understand the humorous tone in which they're written) this series really does obliterate it.
Personally, I always hated history at school and it was my worst subject by far, but this honestly has sparked an interest for history in me. It's really funny (for all ages, not just kids) and because it's so funny and so clever, it's easy to remember all the facts they give you :)
The songs, the funny sketches and characters, they all give you a laugh as well as useful knowledge of various historical time periods and famous figures throughout history. I especially love (and I think other people have already mentioned this) the 'Stupid Deaths' sketch which really makes me laugh (as well as my mum and younger sisters).
The actors/actresses that feature in it I must say are astounding too, how they manage to play ALL of those different kinds of people is beyond me. They're very talented.
So even if you think you hate history, I reccomend you watch this programme....you may find history is a lot more interesting and funny than you previously thought...
