Horrible Histories

Movies, TV and Entertainment
I wonder if there's anyone else here who's a fan of that little BBC gem, Horrible Histories.

Yeah, sure, its marketed as a kids show, but the skits are fairly funny to watch, especially when they start riffing on some of Caligula's insanities (like when he declared war on the sea) or some of their musical numbers involving historical figures (two of my favorites being 'King of Bling' involving Charles II, or their take on 'Stand and Deliver' involving Dick Turpin).
