"I was sceptical about this dvd set after I saw it at best by and bought the cousteau collection (quite a disapointment) that day. About a wekk later back atbest buy it was on sale fo $12.99 so I bought it thinking I have been wasting $13 on worst thing anyway. Got back home and put the first DVD in and it was like WOW!! I was done watchin them all in less than a week. A few of the DVD are repeating part of the others but overall very nice set and for the price really no way to regret it."

"Says "Over 10 hours of breathtaking footage". That would be the case if there was actually an abundance of underwater footage but, unfortunately, most of the series takes place on the surface via on-camera interviews, history lessons on war ships, and the explorers doing whatever. Those looking for uninterrupted footage of undersea lifeforms will be thoroughly disappointed and should avoid this set. Despite a low price I still feel cheated."
Good but not Great

"I read the reviews for this set of movies and decided to take a chance and pick it up, figuring what's the worst that can happen. I was pleased with the set. It has some interesting shows and nice footage of undersea animals. The only down side is the editing, it is an older television show that has been converted to a documentary format. The editing is a little jerky in places, sometime leaving a blank black screen. If you are hoping for a cheaper version of Blue Planet this is probably not it. If you are looking for a nice show at a decent price this is a good option. I am very happy with most of the episodes. If they would have spent a bit more time fixing the editing problems this would have been a great DVD set."
