YTV meets the History Channel
1 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I can only assume the History Channel was attempting to reach out to a younger audience with this series. I certainly felt old watching it - comic book illustrations complete with spurting animated blood? Please (and fast forward). Take warning from the title: Ancients Behaving Badly!!! It's a title pulled right from the front page of any celebrity news rag.

I give it a little more credit than the previous (excellent) reviewer did because there was some actual nuggets of real information. The analyzing of battle strategies and reconstruction of some of the weapons and fighting methods was actually informative. Apart from that it was like watching Hamlet rewritten by a teenage drama club: "Yo Yorick! He was my bro Horatio!"
