We have the box set and some others in the series. It is "gorey" but my kids love them and it has sparked interest in history in general and encouraged them to read more. I would say it's more of my job to pique their interest in the more complex issues rather than depend on this series (or any other besides maybe History of US or Howard Zinn together). I would not consider them cheap laughs. But then again, I am a huge history dork and still read things like Sex with Kings for fun sometimes.
