THANK. YOU. ITUNES.
Oh my gosh, it is about TIME this was on American itunes!!! Horrible Histories is amazing in so many ways it's impossible to count them all. If you think this is just another "kids" show or "educational" show then you've got another thing coming! Horrible Histories is understandably popular in the UK among all ages because of its genious writing, genious actors, and uncanny ability to teach you history without you realizing it. Buy every episode of every season and you'll love it, guaranteed! Hopefully season 4 will be up soon as well!
This show is amazing. You learn so much in so little time and the songs are quite catchy.
My 7-year old daughter loves this series (as do I!). We actually use this for some of our homeschooling. My daughter now learns a lot about history in a completely painless way. I just wish there was also a Horrible Science series, since she loves those books, too!
