Customer Reviews of North Americas National Parks (4-DVD Set)
Very good quality.
Not worth it2/19/2013
I agree with M. Weaver's description, but can't quite understand why he then rated it a 3. I would have to guess that this is something from 30 yrs ago that was transferred from VHS to DVD. It might have been considered very good quality at that time, but not today. It is essentially a terrible powerpoint presentation. Poor music, boring narration, and they actually repeat the pictures. I had hoped for something like a National Geographic type documentary, but it is not close. If you live near a library, I would recommend that you stop by there and see what is available on the National Parks - very likely something much better than this and free to borrow.
Glimpse the majesty of the our National Parks10/31/2012
An outdoors persons dream to visit some of the most majestic National Parks without leaving home. Gives you a reason to travel around and take in the grandeur in person. Vivid pictures and scenic landscapes draw you to understand the draw to these natural wonders. Absolutely amazing to watch before a visit or even in lieu of one. A must have to help educate children about our great nation.
YouTube quality resolution10/30/2012
The content of these DVDs are pretty much what you'd expect: mellow, bucolic scenery paired with bland music and narration. It is was it is from that perspective. What makes these videos so bad, is that the screen resolution is TERRIBLE. It's like watching YouTube on your TV. You can see the pixels clearly in most of the shots. Very disappointing for a DVD when the visuals are pretty much the entire draw.
