Growing up when HBO was known as Home Box Office, it seems odd to be writing a blog post about using it as a learning resource, but, here we are. Their historical shows are pretty accurate and, when you think something might be slanted or slightly off, it’s a perfect reason to grab some books, do an internet search, and clarify. However, their shows really do bring a lot of life into history.
We currently use an OMG to receive television programming and movies into our home, which has expanded our ability to view a lot of programming that was only on the “movie channels” previously. If you haven’t ever looked into their more historic shows, take a look. You may want to check online for age-appropriateness of episodes.
