Welcome to the Underworld
on June 13, 2011
I have a lot of documentary on DVD. From Unsolved Mysteries to documentaries about True Crimes I have a big collection of DVD about History, True Crimes and The Unexplained. Cities of the Underworld is one of my all-time favorite documentary series, and the Third ( and last ) season of the show is by far the best and most interesting.
The list of Country featured in this third season is really impressing: Japan, The U.K., The U.S. (Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco), Belgium, Egypt, Turkey, Australia and many more are featured in this beautiful documentary in 13 episodes. The episodes of Season 3 are:
# DISC ONE: City of Blood(London) / Tunnels of Hell(Okinawa Japan) / Real Mafia Underground(Sicily) / Secret Sin City(Las Vegas)
# DISC TWO: Hitler's Trenches(Belgium) / Barbarians' Lair(Netherland) / Land of Manson(Los Angeles)
# DISC THREE: Gladiators: Blood Sport(Rome) / Secret Holy Land(Ethiopia) / Under the Rock(San Francisco)
# DISC FOUR: Tomb of the Lost Mummies(Egypt) / Gods of War(Turkey) / Alcatraz Down Under(Sydney)
Each episode is 45 minutes long, full of historical pictures/facts, the footage are simply phenomenal. You'll learn a lot of things just by watching this show, each episode is packed with a lot of informations about the History behind the featured city, from World War 2 to Jack The Ripper, from The Dark Ages to Alcatraz. The host is great, he's always really into it and you feel he really cares about the investigations. If you are a sucker for History then this serie will be one of your favorites too. Enjoy the Underworld !!
