Very nicely done. I appreciated learning about some of the lesser known, but vital participants in the Revolution. It occurs to me that rather than engage in historical fiction ("The Patriot"), factual historical dramas based on some of these characters could be compelling and entertaining dramas.
This present is not one of those shows that if you see one you've seen them all like so a lot of reality shows on today. You never know about the people they meet, the locations they search to pick and what you'll see and learn about. This is the one present my wife and I look forward to watching together each week. If you don't watch it you should.
This is a amazing DVD to watch when TV networks are showing repeats. I will obtain more of these in the future. The Amazon description was very clear and accurate. The product was packaged well and arrived in amazing condition. These are amazing shows that we enjoy.
I purchased this film and was really satisfied with the content, packaging, arrival was early and if you are into the History Channel shows this is a amazing one to begin with, you need to watch this movie. We love to watch them pick up junk and turn it into gold they are really amazing at picking up junk and reselling it to people who collect this stuff. Well done shows and I'll watch it more than once.
I have fun watching videos about the revolution particularly between Memorial Day and 4th of July. This doentary covered the role of unsung heroes of the Revolution such as Dr. Samuel Prescott carried the notice to Lexington when Revere couldn't, the woman who rescued 200 POWs from the British prison ships, teenagers and old men who stood up to the British, black slaves who spied for Washington, and John Glover who helped the troops cross the East River and the Hudson River to name a few. It shed a fresh and refreshing light on the cast of characters that helped to establish this country.
Well produced re-enactments of the 'ordinary' patriots that created tremendous differences during the Revolution. Eye opening and well paced; Amazing piece of Historical Doentary, particularly for Revolutionary Buffs. Would love to see related productions!
I really enjoyed this. I also watched Sons of Liberty. I enjoyed Sons of Liberty more, but this is a more accurate and factual piece. Sons of Liberty used more poetic justice and was more entertaining. This was more educational. I enjoyed it very much.
Allow me obtain the "but" out of the way: the narration is so full of superlatives about the town the praise becomes tedious and borderline I missed the series when it was on PBS and thus took advantage of a lull in my other responsibilities to watch the series. The Burns never cease to amaze: the breadth, the scope of their research and yet thir ability to cover the highlights without missing necessary info is nothing short of genius. My particular interest in the series came from my involvement in research on immigration to the US for a play of my own (my drama on the topic is being produced this month in Columbia, SC, but I intend to expand my focus with the next play). I don't think I could have gotten a better sense of what early NYC was and what it has become over the years if I had spent a month in a library.
The depth and breadth of this doentary series is nothing short of amazing. It's like watching the birth of our country - the good, the poor and the ugly. It's so untarnished. The images and footage are amazing. I've never seen anything like this. I view this as a history course. Truly a must-see. It can be harrowing. There were times I required a break. But it draws you in nonetheless.
Amazing doentary about how Globe Battle One affected the United States. I give it 3 stars because I think it did a not good job of explaining the battle itself and only focused on a couple narrow social-justice issues. But what it does show is nevertheless makes a momentary mention of Herbert Hoover, and missed an opportunity to tell the story of the American hunger relief effort that saved Belgium from starvation. There is another PBS doentary about Hoover's hunger relief effort in the Soviet Union after the war. This work created him one of the most admired men in the globe and was the reason he won the presidency a few years later.
I was born in Fresh York (slightly upstate) in the late 1930s, left at age 9 for Arizona, returned at 14, but left again. A lot of the Town is still in my memory, especially the Brooklyn Bridge. Taped this series on VCR in the 90s, and bought the series and PBS book as well. When the DVD came out, I bought that too. Watched it on Netflix after wearing the DVD out. Now own it on Prime. Still watch it again and again. What does that tell you?
I've seen the entire series, "New York - Directed by Rick Burns," a lot of times - the reason for this purchase was simply updating from VHS to DVD. Granted, the prospect of watching a 171/2 hour portrait of Fresh York Town sounds on the surface a bit daunting even for American History buffs but, (for me,) the combination of stunning visuals, splendid prose read so beautifully by David Ogden Stiers underscored by Brian Keane's atmospheric melody makes for excellent video viewing. Best wishes to all those who created it possible.
A very well created Mob doentary. It is not like so a lot of others that show the same old information. I love this series. It's presented in a fresh, entertaining fashion and actually has fresh info you haven't heard a million times from a million other poorly created shows. Watch this one if you're going to watch anything about the subject.
We are ordering our second copy! A unbelievable bonus to give to anyone, especially those with ties to NYC. My husband grew up in Brooklyn, so this is of amazing interest to him. I grew up in Los Angeles, but, even so, can see that NYC became the model and lessons (good and bad) for all cities. Create sure you buy the ver that contains 9/11 as some only go to 2000. This series offers the viewer greater understanding of American history as the town developed displaying its resiliency and power to overcome economic ups and downs. I would recommend it for viewing to families and schools. In addition, this series is helping me to understand more the personality of President Trump and the town he comes from, a town where its strength is found in the diversity of its people, rather than money. Excellent viewing for these trying times! Thanks to all who had a part in its making.
Any history (NYC history, to be precise) enthusiast should love this series. Ric Burns does a amazing job of directing a very long, yet very interesting story on NYC's history, all the method back from the "beginning", when the Dutch discovered the land. Supposedly, the series was originally 7 episodes, and then the happenings of 9/11 took place, which prompted them to create the 8th episode, which is dedicated to the Globe Trade Center. Just like the previous 7 episodes on the history of NYC, this 8th episode covers the entire history of the Globe Trade Center.I've tried to watch several other geographical history doentaries, and they tend to obtain slow and kind of boring, but not this. I've watched it several times... all 8 episodes. It's still GREAT.If you have Amazon Prime, it's currently playing there, so you can stream it "for free" (requires the Amazon Prime membership, obviously). That can change at any time, so if it's still available there, do yourself a favor and obtain on that!
A must view for history and those that are curious about Fresh York and it's impact on our society and the world. The Series is long at 17 hours, and it's not in high definition, but still very amazing and passionate about the info and understanding of how Fresh York was formed and how it continues today to be more evolving then ever before. They should do a follow up episode to reflect the 21st century more and NYC impact on today and the future. Recommend highly!
This doentary is amazingly detailed and provides in-depth and comprehensive info on America's role in the First Globe War. "The Amazing War" forever reshaped the map of the world, changed the role of the United States in the globe and began the modern era of globe history. These changes however came at a horrible price. Millions dead, whole cities destroyed, and simmering crises that were not only not resolved but, in a lot of cases, continue to plaque the globe 100 years e struggles ripped begin by the battle not only continue to shape the globe around the United States but also the domestic life of America. Racial tensions, the definition of "patriot," the role of the government in the lives of the American people, the strength and importance of civil liberties and the never-ending tug of battle between security and Battle One changed everything and, as a result, is one of the most necessary watershed moments in human history. The create things worse few people know about it. Hopefully this doentary will support change this oversight. Everyone should watch this doentary as you can never truly understand the globe until you understand its history.
It gets 5 (maybe 10) stars if compared to other historical accounts. For those unaware of the background, it brings the Erie C and the Globe Trade Center to life. I particularly liked the acc of the wire walker, but it was painful for an acrophobic person to watch. The acc of the horrific Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire and related happenings provide a perspective on the Fresh Deal. Such accounts also provide interrsting insights into the development of the interstate highway system, urban "renewal" and a lot of other things affecting the entire country.
If you love history and love or are fascinated by NYC, this is a great, amazing watch for you. It comes in eight segments, and the first seven were done from 1999-2001 and were completed before 9-11, so all the references that relate to the Globe Trade Center Turrets are beautiful eerie, as they speak unknowingly of what lay ahead in just a few number of months. The latest of the series was done in 2003, post 9-11, of course, and is fully on the Twin Towers, from conception in the late 1940s to the 9-11-2001 one-year anniversary in 2002. It is well done.
Loved everything about this doentary. Amazing music, amazing narration by David Ogden Stiers (Major Charles Emerson Winchester III from the TV present M.A.S.H.). I highly recommend this for anybody interested in the history of the Town of Fresh York. Full Disclosure: I was born in NYC, and lived there for the first 31 years of my life.
Amazing story, awesome characters. One of the most famous animes and definitely worth checking out. The only thing I have to say poor about it is season 1 is a bit slow starting off. It may be halfway through before you search yourself wanting to watch the next episode right away.
Shonen beats shojo fools! Naruto anime is awesome! It's gotten really dark in shippuden, though. Really dark. I really like the peaceful (???) beginning. It's amazing that both the original and shippuden are on toonami now! No more censored BS! But toonami is slow, and once your recordings obtain deleted, you're screwed! Best to buy it like this!
I adore Naruto, but hate the mash the not good English dubbed versions on American TV have created of the characters and stories I fell for in fan subtitled versions downloaded from the internet. Although this set does not contain the translations of writing (like signs) - and swears - that were features of fan subtitling it's amazing to hear the voices and theme melody as I remember them. A very nice set.
I love Naruto. Especially once Shippuden gets rolling. When I was in my teens I first saw a few episodes of Naruto back when it started, 2006ish and I hated it. Thought it was for small children and I didn't give it more than 5 minutes. I was around 17 or 18... now, not even a decade later (currently 26) I've already seen them all caught up with Shippuden and started them all over again. Watch a few episodes, like any present there are a few parts where you will think this is for small children but allow it obtain past that and you'll begin liking it. Hold in mind this does go through progression. Earlier seasons are more kiddish because Naruto is younger and he matures throughout the series. You really see the progression in Shippuden.
Naruto is one of the best anime of it's time. this collection comes with both english and dubbed versions of the series, I started with watching the dubbed years ago but I still love the english ver of this present that is how well Viz did on converting the present and with this set the English ver is fully uncut all the blood and themes are still intact and now has the orignal openings from the Jap ver not that crappy one from cartoon network the gift features are amazing too and the sketch book was interesting to look at but I would have prefered a Manga but oh well maybe next set which I am anticipating greatly. I have been watching this series for years in dubbed form and I am still in love with it till this day Dubbed or [email protected]#$%! is all amazing so I highly suggest this set for any vet of the present and anyone who has never seen Naruto definetly needs to pick this up it's worth it.
The long awaited Naruto uncut boxed set. What can I say, I was a small disappointed that it took so long to obtain here. The Naruto anime has been out in Japan for 4 years and is still going!The box itself is okay for a paper boxed set, though the outside is lacking in images. I would like to see the Naruto characters on the box. The forehead protector is okay. The wrist band needs redesigning. The metal is flat when it should be curled so it can curl around your wrist. Maybe my wrist is too thin... I do like the cinch bag e box to keep the dvds reminds me of Hong Kong imports that fold out, I thought they should have a plastic case. I already slightly creased mine taking it to a relatives house.I liked the storyboard book of episode 8, to actually see the thought that goes into the beloved Naruto series is fascinating and I liked the episode they chose too.What's sad is that it's only half of season 1, meaning 13 out of 26 eps, it cuts into the middle of the Zabusa and Haku arc. But they chose a amazing put to chop off because when the 2nd boxset is released it will begin with episode 14 which is mainly recaps. I wonder if they will have the Crimson Clover e menu screen are nice and thought out. Each dvd has one member of squad 7 in the menu ough it irks me that they begin up with: "Shonen Jump's Naruto" It should be "Kishimoto's Naruto" Give him credit, without him Naruto wouldn't r subtitle translations they need to be consistant. For example they constantly change the english name of Kage Bunshin no Jutsu and for Jutsu they sometimes call it a spell when it should mean technique or skill. But it's amazing to finally hear the Japanese Melody again, to see the true opening and closing sequences even though I dislike the ones in the first season.Over all the boxed set is ok, but could have been better. It's a unique edition!! create it special!! Like contain a UFO was amazing to rewatch them on TV, in Japanese, with proper subtitles instead of Engrish. I guess it's another long wait till the next boxset.
contacted amazon and the early chop off for the episode is just a technical glitch and they are resolving it. i should have checked the reviews before purchasing but in the future people contact amazon directly so they can fix far as the episode, the characters, costumes and sets are wonderfully stereotypical of the 80s. But this is definitely Friday the 13th/Sleepaway Camp via Ryan Murphy. That's either a amazing thing or an poor thing depending on your taste. I like it so far, but I honestly don't know how this is going to latest a 10 episode arc. Perhaps midway through we'll switch to AHS 1986 or some other year.
The 80's intro melody is good. That's literally the only thing amazing about this season. Aside from that, they don't even present most of the horror.... not a single dummy or shred of effort went into this! They just chop out the violent parts and clip back to present the "already dead" body. Also, the moronic 'plot' and writing for AHS season 9 is enough to finally close the door on this series. It's really not a story anymore, it's a sounding board for political views. It should be American Horror Soapbox, not American Horror STORY. It...Is....AWFUL. A dude whispering satan, and a fat, bald vet who can't even walk are supposed to be the poor guys??? Don't worry, it's not a spoiler, they reveal this at the very start. This is no Jason Voorhees whose face is creepily obscured. There is no HUGE creature that poses a valid threat because he walks as quick as you run. No, this is a bald, fat vet who limps and a dude that whispers satan. And a few mins in they introduce a second villainous vet. Yes. Vets, guns and religion is bad. That's all this is. The "action" of the present is SO boring and SO ABSOLUTELY predictable. Random, long intervals in which characters spew out of put monologues that don't even fit the plot or context of the show. Who wrote this garbage?!?!?!?!? And this time??? We don't even have our favorite actors to lean back on when the writing fails. I had a glimmer of hope that AHS was coming back after Season 8...but this???? Yeah, AHS is dead. Time for a fresh writer and a fresh squad to take the scene because AHS is over.
