  • Painful to watch . . . ouch

    In my Humanties class last year we had to watch this video for our unit on Alexander the Great. Oh lord, that was a total waste of 9 some-odd class hours. This show was incredibly boring. If you ask me, Michael Wood has way too much free time on his hands if he is coming up with a project like this. The general idea could have been entertaining, but it just draged on and on and on with no signs of stopping. If educators want to use this for educational purposes, just hand out the guide the the episodes that came with the videos. That gives all the important info and cuts out the boring stuff. Otherwise, the students are going to fall asleep . . . I know I practically did.
