Very Very Excellent...
5 April 2008 | by (Canada - WHIPTV Loves YOU!) – See all my reviews

As Lawrence Welk once said to me "Very Very Excellent"...is the way I would describe History Bites. All the bite, laughs, and more of SCTV. Of course a show like this could only come out of Canada, excuse me, Hamilton Ontario? Much like SCTV History Bites just skims below the media radar but has developed a loyal following. There are so many great characters with a wild mix and match of present references, historical vignettes, and great impressions. Watch for David Letterman, Doctor Phil, and even Prince Rupert!

Is it true that there are new episodes?
