The History Channel finally has some great programming once again.
26 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love history with a passion and often the History Channel has let me down. Although Ax Men is entertaining, I don't think a channel about History really should have a reality show. Battles BC is a truly entertaining and educational show. Here we learn about these ancient battles and the mighty leaders and warriors who helped create empires and wage war. They blend riveting historical accuracy with flashy new age imagery. Now obviously the fighting scenes they have aren't totally accurate, but they weren't meant to be. They are there to put fast paced action alongside this magnificent history lesson. This show is a real treat to watch and I am really thankful that the History Channel finally has something really entertaining and educational to watch. I only hope this program doesn't go the way of Decisive Battles and Command Decisions. The History Channel needs to keep great programming like this on and forget about reality shows and programs about monsters and UFOs. Please History Channel, keep this amazing show on and teach us all more about the legendary Battles BC.
