What a long wait

by jackbarie@yahoo.com on 8/15/2008

I logged on to Buy.Com for grins and giggles knowing that I was asking for the impossible. I have been looking for this DVD for 15 years, as I could only find this series in VHS format. What a suprize when not only did Buy.Com list it, they advertised it before it officially went on the market giving me first crack. I watched this series when it first came to TV and searched ever since. This series is a must watch for kids, it will definitely show them the history of the west. It is a terrific piece of fiction based on historical fact. After seeing it again after more than 20 years, I appreciate James Micheners work even more. I see it is on sale at the moment, so I strongly recommend it.

Centennial: What a Miniseries.

by ChurchofChrist7@comcast.net on 9/8/2008

From all the Miniseries I've seen I say that Centennial is by far The Best. I don't recall any Swearing, No immodest dress. The acting was Great. It gives a accurate account of how life was back during the Frontier Days.
