    I was readily prepared to say that I've seen/heard of worse.

    But nope, I've got nothing. I'm genuinely shocked. Wow. Just...wow.

    I'd rather watch that than ANY "reality" show.

    I remember seeing this about 2 years ago. For unknown reasons, I have never been able to get that theme song out of my head since.

    And now it's back.

    ...

    Oh yeah, and it's a stupid idea.

    I won't lie. Reading that summary and watching that clip made me laugh my ass off, and I'd watch the hell out of that series.

    Indeed that arse needs to be taken on a tour of the Auschwitz concentration camp and given a highly detailed description of what the nazi did there

    guy is an idiot.. Nazis still exist somewhat.

    Pirates are simi cool because they are more mythic. They sail the high seas and steal booty. It was an adventurous lifestyle/career. There are modern pirates, but that is because their country sucks ass and it is a necessity to survive.

    Vikings are cool because of the hats and Norse legends. They were fierce warriors. They are all gone now.

    Romans was a decadent lifestyle and about power. It was a corrupt society. Only "cool" thing people really associate with Romans are Toga parties... and that is just an excuse to get drunk.

    Nazis are racist bastards who murder innocent men, women and children. Hitler was a raving madman whom even the Nazis wanted to get rid of. Nazi-ism will never be "cool".

    The reason people mock Hitler is to diminish his power and influence. That is why you'd have people like Monty Python or Mel Brooks turn Hitler into a Go-Go dancer or something. If you mock him and laugh at him it makes him look ridiculous.

    Saw this donkeys years ago.

    I was more offended at the wasted potential then the concept, a sitcom about Hitler would be a potential goldmine of black comedy in the right hands.

    I agree. Get Charlie Brooker or Chris Morris to write it.
