Now that I am watching the 2015 version of Poldark, I had to review this one. This is simply the best...the casting, the direction, the chemistry, the acting...everything is superb and this is so enjoyable to watch over and over again. I ordered this years ago in the VHS version; now I can't wait to get the DVD and watch it again! I'm sorry to say I have been really disappointed with the 2015 version...it's just ok. For me, the chemistry is not there between the actors and I feel the passion between Demelza and Poldark is missing. Elizabeth is not played anywhere near as good as in the original. Oh well...I guess I just like the original...which is usually the case. I applaud their efforts but the 2015 version misses the passion and excitement of the book. Get this version instead, kick back, have a cuppa and enjoy!!

A major disappointment

Wish I could take this back. The acting, the staging, the direction, well, just about everything were disappointments. I couldn't feel sorrow at the tragedies, nor laugh at the comedic scenes....Read complete review

The Original Series from the 70s

Comments about PBS Poldark Complete Collection DVD:

So looking forward to viewing this series that I watched in the 70's. I just purchased it, I recall it was one of the first series produced on public television of its kind. I loved hearing Alistair Cooke introduce the whole series, and then prepare the audience for what was to come each week. It was a rare treat to have that kind of a historic novel's production presented in a series on TV. I realize the picture will not be as sharp and crisp as the current offering, but I am prepared to enjoy it anyway. It was filmed during a time when technology was still developing.
The current version is stunning with its filming in Cornwall. One feels transported there with each episode.

Something different!

Comments about PBS Poldark Complete Collection DVD:

I ordered Poldark based on the preview teaser from my Downton Abbey DVD purchase. The leading man is different as well as the format of the film. It's more like a soap opera series than a film. Not sure I would have purchased it based upon the actual DVD presented. Though its an OK story line, just a bit hokey to me, my hubby enjoyed watching it.
