History Bites

Show Summary

Made in Canada. This is a Canadian Series. The show had 5 seasons. You will notice a Season 6 in this guide. There was no real Season 6. This is where all the specials are listed. 1. Host Rick Green guides us through various periods of world history as contemporary television programming might have depicted it. With a sense of humour, we learn the real facts about the past and their link with the present. ================= 2.

  • Yes...Canadian Made but GLOBAL in focus...almost ALL of the 'in' jokes and impersonations are readily recognizable by Americans... This show is a HISTORY show that uses comedy not a comedy show about history. Viewed from that angle...it ismoreless

    9.0
    Can't understand why this show is/was so underapprectiated. Lead by Rick Green, who doesn't hit you over the head with sex and vulgarity to be funny, this is a GREAT show for those looking to learn a little about classic history but with a comedic twist.



    Rick Green: I used to watch Prisoners of Gravity and I didn't even read Comic Books...the guy is just plain funny. Also in Red Green show and a member of the Frantics (coming back this Jan 06!!!) and Four on the Floor.



    Ron Pardo: NO ONE does a Letterman impression better...its unbelievable. Other excellent impressions are: Regis Philbin, Dennis Miller, Don Cherry, Howard Stern, Tom Brokaw, Archie Bunker, Larry King, Garry Shandling. see more : http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0661132/



    Watch this show...learn and laugh...its excellent!
