Not only for children
16 August 2010 | by (Vicious Vikingland) – See all my reviews

Blood, guts and excrement. Words to make you sick, I meant. Show this to your children and rejoice, toilet calls - there is no choice!

Sorry, didn't rime properly. Bad viking me.

Amazing show. I cannot believe how they market this as a children's show. The humor is quite pythonesque and the pop-culture references are pretty subtle (for a child to understand).

On the minus side there are some historical inaccuracies. E.g. Caligula wasn't murdered by his niece. And there are some more, but who cares. It's fun.

There really are some gruesome moments.. mostly involving feces. Amazing educational show, you silly Brits!
