Roots: The Complete Collection 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
A great mini-series ruined by poor packaging and defective discs. I enjoyed the first 4 discs and I was very impressed with the quality. However, when I reached disc 5, I discovered that the discs for "Roots:The Next Generation" were defective and ruined by poor sound. Unfortunately, I made this discovery after the 14 day return period. If you buy this, play through all the discs right away, make sure the discs are good and that you have audible sound for all of the discs. It's a great series and deserves better treatment by the manufacturer.
