I bought these for my daughter (series 1, 2 and 3 on order). I hated history at school but found myself watching and laughing all the way through these. As well as the fun I picked up quite a few facts on the way. If only school history was taught like this ! The scenes, information and acting are all spot on. The plots and presentation of the information has been well research and presented in each part.
They are very funny and will appeal to adults as well as children and there is lots of interesting information to learn about in a brilliantly presented way - I loved the bit about Henry the VIII using a medieval version of Facebook to find a new wife. Highly recommend to all ages!!
We have seen series one and two and now await series 3 for some more fun from these excellant DVDs.
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!!!
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.
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!
