“REMARKABLE . . . The invasion via Julius Caesar’s legions in fifty four B.C. . . . the increase of chivalry and the Crusades . . . The development of the Globe theatre . . . and the arrival of the economic Revolution. . . . What a pleasant solution to get the texture of London and of English heritage. . . . We witness first-hand the lust of Henry VIII. We overhear Geoffrey Chaucer figuring out to put in writing The Canterbury stories. . . . each one episode is a punchy story made of bite-size chunks finishing in tiny cliffhangers.”
