    I don't know if anybody else knows this show, but it is the best ever in the history of the whole wide world!
    It's on CBBC, so available if you can pick up BBC 1 & 2, and is inspired from the Horrible Histories books by Terry Deary.

    He even acts in it and they have somebody checking that everything is 100% accu-rat (typo because there's a rat presenting). The songs are simply epic (just put Horrible Histories songs in YouTube) and the sketches just funny.

    It won the comedy awards 2011 for television series, and even got 3 episodes presented and narrated by Stephen Fry. Loads of adults watch it, and I simply find it epic.

    Series 4 starts on Monday, and I'll be in the UK, so: CBBC channel. I know what I'm doing on Monday.


    Basically: anybody else watch this?

    I preferred the King of Bling:

    "My name is,
    My name is,
    My name is Charles the Second!"

    Have you been watching season 4?

    Season 4 is the new one, only on the CBBC channel for now. We're lucky to pick it up here with the digibox. Took a while though.

    We have Austar. I don't think we have anything CBBC or BBC related apart from UKTV. I only get HH on ABC3...

    Best thing on telly right now!
    They have even signed up The League Of Gentlemen; with Reece Sheersmith, Steve Pemberton and Sherlock and Dr Who's very own Mark Gatiss making up the movie pitch panel.

    They simply HAVE to do a crossover with Dr Who for one of the BBC charity shows, (Comic Relief or CiN)...

    The Tudor Archers was the best ever! My little brother and I were playing at it for a long time.
    I loved the Greek philosophers' song from season 4.

    And the League are just great. A HH crossover with DW wouldn't really work as one is info and the other is Sci-Fi.

    What could work is Doctor Who and Merlin crossing.
