I bought this DVD, because I had seen the numerous positive comments on this website and others about this series. All of the reviews commented on how funny this series was supposed to be and even the comments on the cover of the DVD include "hilarious" and "very funny". I now feel, though, as though I should redress the balance and post the first negative review on here. Some of the reviews on IMDB compared this series to such classics as Up Pompeii and The Inbetweeners, but I do not agree with that at all. I thought this series was woefully unfunny and did not live up to my expectations at all. The writers of this crap series should realise that it takes more to make a funny comedy than just taking modern characters and putting them into a historical setting. I thought that the second episode was a bit funnier than the first, but I do not want to waste time watching so-called comedies that are inconsistent, or which only improve when you have watched more than one episode. I believe that true comedy should be funny from the start. One of the stars of this series was Joel Fry, who also appeared in Trollied and White Van Man, among others, where he was much funnier and where he had more to work with. I just could not get into this show at all, but others may not share my opinion. One star from me.
