I have to agree with the review of Monak. I thought that the idea of going back into historical eras to recreate the feasts of kings and ancient cultures was going to be an entertaining and educational show.
Unfortunately, the two hosts are very smug and sarcastic during most of the dinners, and just sit around in bad costumes like a couple of toads making sarcastic remarks about most of the food. It is like being the food critic at an imaginary restaurant. Kind of pointless.
There is very little educational value. No effort to be historically accurate is made in regards to the outfits and sets. It seems like slapdash junk that is put together, and we are supposed to be smug along with the hosts, and pretend it is an entertaining show.
What is the point of having historical meals without any historical context or discussion of the background behind the meals, ceremonies, events, etc. It ends up being just a bunch of slop tossed on bowls that may or may not be historically accurate, and then they eat the food and usually tell you how much they did not like it. Boring, bland, and bad entertainment.
