I still think LBJ is the most entertaining one. But that owes a lot to the man himself. So many crazy stories...
And yes, I too wonder why Eisenhower wasn not included in this collection. I already own all these (plus IKE); collecting them the hard way.
Like another reviewer pointed out, the 20 Century is represented well, but remember: McKinley ushered in the 20th and thus should be included as well. And not only are Taft, Coolidge, Hoover, Clinton missing... but don't forget Harding & Ford (although they are quite forgettable).
I actually bought "FRONTLINE: The Clinton Years" from PBS as a placeholder until they do something better on Bill.
I have also watched the first 2 hours on Truman and that was well done, so informative about his life, his family, his childhood, personal things like that which help explain how he made decisions, where he was coming from etc.
What I've watched so far makes history so fascinating, so incredibly interesting. I'd say, this is a must-watch for all Americans.
I'm really looking forward to watching the complete collection.
BTW, this is a good price (it's higher on the PBS website)
This series seems to be some of the best resources of our previous presidents and is highly recommended. The only drawback is that the episode on Ike is not included in this collection. It does not seem to be available on DVD anymore, possibly due to a copyright issue. Don't let that keep you from getting this excellent set!
