Useful, interesting Shakespeare

By Portia

from Southern California

Comments about PBS Shakespeare Uncovered (Complete Set) DVD:

The discussions are interesting, and illustrated with scenes from the plays.The comments are well done by actors who have done the pays. They show what is going on and why in the plays. Especially good are Dereck Jacobi and Jeremy Irons. Very good for classrooms or home viewing.

Wonderful Insights

Comments about PBS Shakespeare Uncovered (Complete Set) DVD:

This series provides superb insight into many of Shakespeare's major plays and their productions. I could have done without the aside by Derek Jacobi and some of Ethan Hawke's comments. But otherwise these episodes provide wonderful analyses.

Shakespeare-what more needs to be said!

By Mike the Elder

Comments about PBS Shakespeare Uncovered (Complete Set) DVD:

If you like Shakespeare (and who doesn't) you will like the unique approach used to review the author and some of his plays. A nice balance between the host's narrative and some of the scenes being played. The only thing that seemed out of place was Jacobi's introducing the question of Shakespeare's actual authorship of the plays. Other than that diversion I thoroughly enjoyed this PBS special. Watched the entire program twice in the first week that I had it.
