Order. Instead of starting at one point (say New England) and making a loop around the area to be covered, the chapters seem randomly placed on the discs. That is to say, if you want to watch a given area (say the US East Coast), you have to keep changing discs.
Intros: The same intro appears in each chapter. The explanation of the reason for the project, the selection of crew, etc. Same for the ending and credits. Once is enough. I made good use of the fast forward button.
Agenda: I am a boater so I bought the set to watch the boating and cruising. Much of the series focuses on complaints about development and individuals who have political agendas. And subjects not related to cruising or boating.
It's worth the price and I've watched most of it (what I didn't skip over), but unlike my other waterway DVDs, I doubt I will watch it more than once.

I saw most of the programs when they first came out. I delayed buying then and have tried for years to get the whole series. Read morePublished on March 25, 2014 by Joseph Carter
Great series to watch. A little dated at this point, but still very well done. Too bad it did not receive national coverage.Published on January 10, 2014 by Ken M
It captures the changing culture of that section of American life.
Also, I had the amazing fellow that was the inspiration for the project in my jr. high classroom in Ft. Read more
