Editorial Reviews

A magnificent four-disc set transports you around the globe to the darkest, eeriest and most intriguing hidden spaces beneath the world's great capitals.

* Surprising discoveries lie just below our feet under the streets of today's greatest
cities.

* Uncover ancient buried wonders with host Don Wildman.

cities' cellars!

This is the stuff of fantasy: exploring secret chambers and forbidden passages beneath city streets, unlocking mysteries of the past and discovering forgotten relics.

This is CITIES OF THE UNDERWORLD. In metropolises around the world today, skyscrapers loom overhead, traffic blares and vendors hawk their wares. But below hide city upon city, each with its fascinating and unknown history. With infectious enthusiasm and runaway curiosity, and aided by instructive computer animations and maps, host Don Wildman explores these layers often hundreds of feet down to transport you underground and back in time. Check your batteries, it's dark down there!

In SEASON TWO, CITIES took you to the darkest recesses of New York, Dublin, Berlin, Moscow, Washington, DC and many more places. You explored the relics of the ancient Maya, the Vikings and the Knights Templar. You delved into the secrets of Stalin, Hitler and the Viet Cong.

5.0 out of 5 stars journey into the mysterious underworlds March 29, 2009
This series is a great adventure show in which the underworld loving
host Eric G takes us beneath many various places and cities in a hunt for history and knowledge. Each episode travels somewhere in the world to a new location to see more exciting explorations of history and mystery.
And there isn't a bad episode either because there are so many places that can be visited and seen in so many locations. Season 2 keeps up the great spread of
explorations from around the globe and not one is boring because history and things that lie below us are always fascinating. Let's hope Mr. G
makes it out to Colorado someday to see the death pit in trinidad and of course Cheyenne Mountain Complex the worlds most famous and important bunker complex. Every season of this show is worth seeing or owning because you learn something in a enjoyable underground history hunt.

1.0 out of 5 stars Missing episodes!!!! December 25, 2011
By Sarah
Verified Purchase
Wow - hugely disappointing. We bought this for our parents specifically because the Chicago episode occurs in Season Two - they opened the package on Christmas day to find that this episode is not included in the set!!!

This should NOT be sold as a complete season - it is in fact missing two episodes that ran during this season (Chicago and Katrina). It appears as though this was a HIstory Channel mistake, not this seller specifically (History Channel's "Compete Set" isn't complete either. But still - people need to know that they are not actually buying all of the episodes.

VERY upsetting - what a waste,

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite the complete season April 16, 2009
Two Season Two episodes are missing:

17 Mar 08 -- Mob Underground
28 Apr 08 -- Katrina Underground

Neither are listed in Amazon's summary (taken from The History Channel's
"shop" site (shop.history.com) for the upcoming Season Three box set. (Both are available (on DVD-R) from The History Channel (for $25 EACH!))

A couple remarks about the series itself:
1) The "Gee Whiz" attitude of the host (Don Wildman) doesn't take long to grate.
2) The same music score is used in every episode so that gets old fast as well.
But the locations and history are real and that's what makes the series interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Investigations into the Underworld ! November 2, 2011
Verified Purchase
Cities of the Underworld is an American documentary television series that premiered on March 2, 2007 on History. The program explores the subterranean environment and culture beneath various civilizations. The show employes a quick-paced editing and shooting style along with extensive use of 3D computer graphics. Basically it's a mix between an History show and a Travel show. The show is hosted by Don Wildman.

This is one of my favorite show. In Season 2, the show takes us to the darkest recesses of New York, Dublin, Berlin, Moscow, Washington, DC and many more places. The show explore the relics of the ancient Maya, the Vikings and the Knights Templar. The show investigate the secrets of Stalin, Hitler and the Viet Cong. Episodes for Season 2:

1. Underground Apocalypse (Jerusalem, Israel)
2. Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and the Vietnamese jungle)
3. A-Bomb Underground (Tokyo and Hiroshima, Japan)
4. Viking Underground (Dublin, Ireland)
5. Hitler's Last Secret (Prague, Czech Republic)
6. Maya Underground (Belize)
7. Prophecies From Below (Jerusalem, Israel)
8. New York: Secret Societies (New York City, USA)
9. Washington, D.C.: Seat of Power (Washington, D.C., West Virginia)
10. Stalin's Secret Lair (Moscow, Russia)
11. Secret Soviet Bases (Ukraine)

Everything about Season 2 is great: The footages, the topics, the informations given to us....As always the host, Don Wildman, is doing a great job. Only disappointment: two episodes were left out of the DVD set, the episode about Chicago and the episode about New-Orleans. Overall it's a great collection, and if, like me, you buy a lot of DVDs about History or about other Countries you need to add this DVD set to your collection. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating... February 26, 2011
By myz
I was surprised I so enjoyed this series, but it really uncovers aspects of the past I would not have thought of much at all. The host, Don Wildman does a wonderful job exploring hidden underground secrets of major cities, and his enthusiasm is really what gives the program an infectious energy. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in history and the civilizations of the past who often built the foundations for the greatest cities in the world today
