Editorial Reviews

Ship out aboard some of the largest sailing ships ever built, the mighty vessels now celebrated as "Tall Ships." They were the heirs to the majestic clippers, the last and most glorious of all commercial sailing ships. With their acres of canvas, towering masts and vast holds, they were true giants of the ocean. But all the size and grace in the world could not prevent the coming of steam, and these massive ships had a short commercial life.

This History Channel disc makes me a little leery to buy more from them, strictly due to production quality. It's a bare bones disc, with no extras, a minimal menu, and nondescript packaging. All this at a price higher than I usually pay for recent theatrical films? That's steep.

And yet if they were to rerelease more in this series, I would absolutely buy them. The production of the disc is minimal, but the actual show is fantastic! I love sailing ships, but I don't know a lot about them. And I knew almost nothing about the Windjammers before this show, so I learned a lot. (Coincidentally, though, I have toured the Star of India, one of the ships profiled herein.) These are the last giants of the Age of Sail, amazing metal hulled ships.

I watched this show twice in a row, once for the experience of the ships at sea and once for all the facts and details. When I bought this, I was actually looking for their episode on the Clipper ships, which isn't currently available. Cheap packaging or no, I'll definitely buy that one when I can!

Rating: 5 stars, but knock one off for the production quality.
