Horrible Histories!!!!
11 September 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this show so much! It's hilarious, it's not boring at all and a great way to learn history. I watch it with my mum and dad every night and they too enjoy it. I know all the words to most songs, and thanks to Horrible Histories, I know all the English kings and queens, things about Charles the 2nd etc. Some of the song film clips resonates well with an older audience, as they are copies of older songs. They creatively add riff offs of shows, such as 'Historical Masterchef', 'Historical Apprentice' and 'Historical Dentist.' If you haven't watched it, I would definitely give it a go as it is funny and entertaining. As you watch the series you begin to get attached to some of the main characters, like we have, so it makes it more fun. 10/10 I love it so much.
