Movie Reviews

10th Inning included in this set
Don Reese | Duluth, MN USA | 10/09/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"First off, I'll go ahead and say it's my fault for buying this and the "10th Inning" DVD separately.

I heard about the new Ken Burn's documentary so I came to Amazon looking for it. I put it in my cart and saw the usual list of items frequently purchased together with it. That's when I saw the original documentary was being released on DVD.

I didn't see anywhere in the description of the Ken Burns' Baseball set that "10th Inning" was included. Imagine my surprise when I opened the shipment and saw in the lower right corner of the box that the set did indeed included "10th Inning" as well as additional footage.

I came back to Amazon to see if I'd missed it, but after reading the description I still don't see "10th Inning" mentioned. (At the time of this posting.)

However, if I look at the image, and click on it to enlarge, there it is. The notice that "10th Inning" is included in the set.

So my mistake for not noticing and checking out that little red blurb in the corner before buying both items. (After all, they ARE frequently purchased together. The Amazon algorithm can't be wrong. Apparently I'm not the only one making this mistake, but I'm here to try to help others from making it.)

This is posted primarily as a head's up to those who haven't purchased either documentary yet.

Simply stupendous

"It brought me back to loving and following the game I loved for years. For that alone it is worth everything bright and beautiful."
