"For about the last year I've had the History Channel set The Revolution in my shopping cart / saved section just waiting to add it on to a small item for free shipping. Alas, I never was short of the $25 limit so it just sat there. I was happy but skeptical when this mega set (which includes The Revolution) popped up on my suggestions at just under $70. I was skeptical since it includes so much good stuff that I thought maybe it was some sort of bootleg or Region 2 discs or something. I checked out the seller "forgetthegouge" and other than some folks complaining about slow shipping times there were no issues so I took the bait on June 5th and it arrived on June 10th (so no problem with the shipping to me, anyway). I was expecting a stack of 13 separate discs but was happy that it is its own boxed set with the discs each in fold-out holders. The set appears to have been a retail set (one of the store alarm sensors was inside) and I wonder if it is from a close-out, perhaps from Media Play or one of the may companies that have gone out of business in this recession / depression, whatever the heck it is. I have not yet played the discs but they appear genuine and I'm looking forward to viewing them. Once I do I'll try to update this review as a content review as well (but 27 hours is a lot of video to watch so it may be a while!) In any case, I wanted to post this review to let anyone looking at this purchase know that it seems genuine and to be a genuinely good deal!

Update 7-4-10 / Content - So far I have watched Founding Fathers, Founding Brothers as well as the Washington the Warrior and parts of The Revolution and I am impressed. This is typical History Channel fare which I feel is well done and infuses history with an energy that keeps the viewer entertained and will appeal to young and old alike.

I note today, July 4th, that oddly someone has found this review unhelpful for a "score" of 0 out of 1. Not sure what is unhelpful about the information above - I would have loved to see this review before buying this just to know that these discs are the "real deal" and an excellent deal at that."
