Customer Reviews of Centennial Complete Series
We watched this mini series on television. Did not miss an episode then, and was delighted to find such a wonderful buy on the DVD. First -- this is an excellent adaptation of James A. Michener's book although it did not remain true to the novel, the changes were good too. MOST CERTAINLY - EXCELLENT IN EVERY WAY!!
Outstanding American Classic2/9/2009
Centennial is considered to be the first mini-series. After its initial showing, this program evolved into one of the best loved American classics. The program featured some of the finest television stars who depicted characters associated with the founding of the American West. It is always a joy to revisit the Pasquinels, Major Mercy, Jim Lloyd, and all the other memorable characters.

Centennial: What a Miniseries.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.
What a long wait8/15/2008
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.
