In Search of Myths and Heros - SoulFood

By Shelly

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about PBS Michael Wood: In Search of Myths and Heroes DVD 2PK:

This is an awesome experience. I bought this DVD set a couple of years ago and it is still my favorite chill out and relax DVD to watch. I love all four of the historical stories. I say "stories" because Michael Wood is an excellent story teller - fun part is that the story is based on historical evidence. Lovely relaxer. My personal favorite episode is Jason and the Golden Fleece. I must have watched it over 150 times now. I still love to watch that one and the others. Lots of fun for the historical travel buffs.

Most informative and entertaining

Comments about PBS Michael Wood: In Search of Myths and Heroes DVD 2PK:

My wife and I are both thoroughly well educated in the humanities. Mr. Wood has a genius for developing and presenting a fresh perspective with a deepening clarity that entertains while it unveils and instructs the viewers about historical and literary truths. We have felt our knowledge affirmed and also enjoyed feeling it grow as we watch these films. -- Norm & Ruth

Excellent Mixture of Present and Past

By Constant Learner

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Michael Wood: In Search of Myths and Heroes DVD 2PK:

It's wonderful the way Wood weaves modern footage, ancient myth, archaeology, politics and cultural information in this film. He takes us to the Caucasus, the Himalayas, and Medieval England in the blink of an eye and makes them all as alive as our backyard, but filled with fascinating layers of cultural myth and societal change. I'm a PhD in Literature, but I learned from this and wondered at the places he took us.
