      CLASSIC AND UNFORGETTABLE

      Posted

      Like the other reviewer I st by my tv mesmerized- see back then we did not have dvd, vcr, or tivo- you watched it and could not walk out of the room without missing something so you had everything all prepared- snacks and all so your eyeballs could say glued to the acting and storyline- what amazing facts we all learned and how the people had changed after watching this- it was a piece of history in a miniseries that will not be replaced or forgotten. This is a classic for all- and everyone should ewatch at least once in thier lives. Amazing talent, producing- pure heart and artistry.

      I watched this in the 70s when it was released on TV and was riveted to the set every night! It made MY ancestors come alive and got me interested in MY history as well. Since then, I have been able to trace one family line back to 1460. I think that this is a classic series. One of the keepers for your DVD collection!

      ROOTS First Edition as co-directed by Alex Haley. A classic and historical buy. Now you can see at anytime, the TV series that held the black community in front of their TVs for a whole week. It was a great family time. And the story line was fantastic and true.

      The Next Generations is not as good as the original Roots, but it is a fast way to learn a little history. It saves time from reading books, but it is only one interpretation of the events. The price was right for 4 discs.

      I remember watching this series with my mom in the 70's. She was mesmerized by it and so was I. I will make sure to watch it with my kids this summer and have indepth conversation with them. Like the above writer said Its a Keeper.

      I enjoyed the original movie and especially enjoyed this saga because it's more relatable to my era, during the 70's.
