Tony Robinson of Black Adder returns in another
entertaining, disgusting and informative look at the worst jobs in
history. There are quite a few people in the 21st century who
believe that they have the worst job on the planet but Robinson
delves into some that can truly be considered the worst jobs in
history that uses humour, information and entertainment in this
strangely compelling documentary.
Best of all, Robinson simply doesn't tell the
viewer about the jobs but he actually attempts to get involved in
these jobs that will leave some viewers squirming in their chairs.
Each episode contains around 10 different jobs such as the "Gut
Girl" from Episode 4 or "Royal Washer Woman" from Episode 2 that
will make most people thank the job they have and you might want to
show this DVD to the select unemployed who refuse to get jobs
because nothing is worse than these jobs.
Even though these jobs are sometimes utterly
disgusting, they were the foundation of British society. The video
quality of Worst Jobs in History Season 2 is presented in glorious
16:9 widescreen with Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo to almost immerse you
into these strange jobs. Definitely recommended viewing. It should
also be noted that Season 1 of this documentary has not yet been
released on DVD.
