5.0 out of 5 stars 10th Inning included in this set, October 9, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Baseball: A Film by Ken Burns (Includes The Tenth Inning) (DVD)
First off, I'll go ahead and say it's my fault for buying this and the "10th Inning" DVD separately.

I heard about the new Ken Burn's documentary so I came to Amazon looking for it. I put it in my cart and saw the usual list of items frequently purchased together with it. That's when I saw the original documentary was being released on DVD.

I didn't see anywhere in the description of the Ken Burns' Baseball set that "10th Inning" was included. Imagine my surprise when I opened the shipment and saw in the lower right corner of the box that the set did indeed included "10th Inning" as well as additional footage.

I came back to Amazon to see if I'd missed it, but after reading the description I still don't see "10th Inning" mentioned. (At the time of this posting.)

However, if I look at the image, and click on it to enlarge, there it is. The notice that "10th Inning" is included in the set.

So my mistake for not noticing and checking out that little red blurb in the corner before buying both items. (After all, they ARE frequently purchased together. The Amazon algorithm can't be wrong. Apparently I'm not the only one making this mistake, but I'm here to try to help others from making it.)

This is posted primarily as a head's up to those who haven't purchased either documentary yet.

FYI, There was a press release on the PBS site back in the summer which told the whole story. Also, and I have suggested this before, don't always rely on the frequently bought together offer. Amazon has been doing this for years. They don't realize the goof they are making. Until they do, if in doubt, ask someone who knows (the intended manufacturer, other customers in the message board section, etc.) before you order. That is what they/we are here for. The same issue occurred when the new complete set of the American copy of BBC's Vicar Of Dibley. They put the newer disc as frequently bought with the newer complete set of 5 discs, not realizing they were already in the set. Fortunately, there was an older set and people like me were there to try to help out.
