Best series ever
2 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

Its a very easy and interactive as well as funny way to "laugh your way through history". I definitely recommend this to everyone (children to adults). Great series!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish there would continue filming new series including Huns, china and other cultures which would be very interesting to watch and learn. Awful Egyptians Vile Victorians Gorgeous Georgians Awesome USA Troublesome 20th Century Slimy Stuarts Incredible Incas Angry Aztecs Rotten Romans Groovy Greeks Potty Pioneers Putrid Pirates Ruthless Rulers Frightful WWI Woeful WWII Smashing Saxons Cut-Throat Celts Terrible Tudors Savage Stone Age Measly Middle Ages Barmy British Empire Stormin' Normans Blized Brits Villanious Victorians Vicious Vikings Rutless Romans

P.S. As well as the books
