Lures you in, has become our show for family night,
This review is from: Cities of the Underworld: Season 1 (DVD)
From the first time I saw the episode trailer I was hooked; it makes you long for more. Sometimes I feel like fewer suspenseful replays would allow for more information to be inserted and that is probably my only complaint. However the host is a bit self-centered and annoys us. I think they were concerned with the cool/hip image of him to attract younger viewers, but he is annoying.
I look for the series to be awarded some recognition for their ability to document historical places which have never before been aired on television. Sadly, most are old, and crumbling and are not being preserved. SO the value of this series is truly priceless. Still each time I see a new episode it renews my enthusiasm to travel to Europe some day. This is a hit, and would be a great program to incorporate into any school-based curricila. Well done.
I am buying one to give as a gift to someone who does not have access to the History Channel. Thank you for instilling a passion and interest for history into my kids. I never though it would happen.
