Rick Steves' Europe - Exceptionally Informative6/30/2008
For anyone who's enjoyed watching Rick Steves' Europe on PBS, especially in HD, you're bound to appreciate having every episode on DVD. The best part is rather than be subjected to the scheduling whims of the local PBS station, you can pop in a DVD from this series and travel anywhere, not only in Europe but also Egypt and Israel, at your personal whim. In addition, there are special episodes such as; Travel Tips, The Making Of, and Bloopers of course. The earlier episodes are in full-frame format but the majority were originally filmed in HD widescreen. Although these are not true HD format discs, the standard DVD format still looks excellent on standard and HDTVs. For me this was a terrific addition to my DVD collection filled with excellent travel photography and Rick Steves' succinct tourist information and interesting history lessons. With 70 episodes in this box set it is a tremendous bargain. "Keep on traveling."
