Outstanding
4 March 2016 | by (Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

This is an outstanding TV series. Informative fun. I teach European history and I use it often as a fun way to introduce topics or to reinforce information. I cannot wait until my daughter is old enough to watch, learn, and be entertained by this TV series. Not even historians can be 100% accurate in their interpretation and analysis of the past, but despite that this show has more hits than misses. I know they have just recently made a new series and I do hope they continue to do more. BBC America should show it or PBS - as American kids are missing out - unless they are in my history class lol Good job lads and ladies on an excellent show.
