Fascinating.
16 July 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In recent years, Monty Pythoner Terry Jones has created a wonderful niche for himself on television. His historical documentaries are fantastic--highly original, fascinating and a bit funny. He's managed to re-examine and breath life into such topics as the Crusades, life for the average Roman, the Middle Ages--among others. Here with "Ancient Inventions", Jones is back with a short series (only three episodes) all about ancient technology. His purpose--to show folks of old WEREN'T stupid and their advances led to the advances of today.

Of the three shows in the series, this one is the slightly naughty one--though it's really not all that explicit. Jones explores such topics as prostitution, "The Karma Sutra", contraceptives (this is THE most interesting part of the show) and beauty--which is important in order to be able to attract a partner. All in all, pretty interesting.

By the way, it was odd that Jones didn't show footage from the "The Kiss" (1896) when he talked about the film but a different early kissing film. Considering "The Kiss" is in the public domain, its not being used is unusual.
