Is It Any Good?

The result is an entertaining, insightful history lecture. The scholars are good on TV, and the live-action recreations and computer graphics help viewers understand the tactical decisions that carried the day in some of the most important battles of the ancient world.

The show's subjects tend to be names that most people will recognize, but viewers may not know exactly what made them significant in the first place. Battles BC is a fun (albeit sometimes intense) way to fill in these knowledge gaps.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
