While it is technically for kids, I have recently discovered and fallen in love with CBBC's Horrible Histories. A sketch show loosely based on the Terry Deary books, informing children of the interesting facts and gory details of history

And I'm not the only adult to love it. It's won adult comedy awards and been described as "Monty Python meets Blackadder".

But IMHO the best things are the songs. :D (And the male actors. But opinions and mileage may vary on that one ;) )

Oh! The Shakespeare is my favorite! All the others are wonderful and hilarious as well, obviously, but I'm a Sinatra fan so this one takes the cake for me.

Hee. :D Mat is a good singer, but he's not exactly Ol' Blue Eyes. But I do love this one. Not sure it's my all-time favourite, though. Not with RAF Pilots and Dick Turpin and Charles II...

(BTW did you see my latest Red & Black discussion/help request?)

I did. I'm desperately behind at the moment between writing and RL and that sort of response requires more time and effort than a simple 'woo hoo!'

off to bed...hoping to regroup soon...

Sorry. :( Didn't mean to be in any way accusatory. Just wondered. :)

Hope you get on top of things soon, sweets.
