As a series, this is a five star show. I'm giving this four stars, however because it is missing one very important thing from when it originally aired on the History Channel: Subtitles/Closed Captioning. If you are deaf or hard of hearing and need cc, don't bother getting this. They are not there. You'd probably be better off trying to find it playing again on the History Channel. I'm very disappointed they couldn't include something that they already had in the original airing so that everyone could enjoy their master work. I bought this for my husband because he loved the show. But because it is missing closed captioning, I can't enjoy it with him.
