Movie Reviews

A Great Collection of PBS Documentaries
Eric Pregosin | New Carrollton, Maryland United States | 01/15/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought all of these individually. As he did with The Civil War and Baseball (as well as his earlier works which are now also in a box set, not to mention The West, New York and Jazz). Ken Burns continues to present his "American Stories" with pictures and narration that bring the past alive. 1 tiny nitpick note however. This is an 8 not a 7 disc set (for some reason the Jack Johnson story was released on 2 discs rather than a double sided disc like Mark Twain and Lewis and Clark which are of equal length to it). Other than that, you're getting a good deal on this and it will fit nicely along side the "America" box set (or your copies of those individually) and Ken's award winning "mini series" (plural). Get em all, and all other documentaries will just fade away. Ken Burns is the KING of the modern documentary film. Keep em coming, Ken, we'll keep buying em (on DVD) :-)"

"I received a set with 2 Lewis & Clark disks, not 1 doubled sided disk. The Mark Twain however is double sided with no indication that it is double sided. The series is excellent and informative. I highly recommend it."
