DVD is great no complaints about the quality of the set what so ever but Whoever packaged it for shipping should be beaten with a hose. It arrived with no protection what so ever except for shrink wrap and was wrapped with another DVD set i bought. BOTH sets cases were crushed to the point I had to go out and find DVD cases to put them in. If this is the way Walmart ships fragile items I won't be buying anything on here again. Very disappointed in the lack of care, still have not gotten a response from anyone at Walmart after submitting a complaint, probably won't.
I purchased the original \"Roots\" from Walmart one Saturday as we were doing grocery shopping for the house. I hav'nt seen this movie since I was a little girl and there were a lot of things I did'nt understand about the movie therefor I was elated when I saw one box set sitting on the shelf. I enjoy watching this movie with my children and once I completed viewing the box set to my surprise is when I saw that there is a \"ROOTS - The Next Generation\" box set, so I ordered it and now we enjoy the entire series.
Norman Krasna's screenplay, from his Broadway legiter, doesn't really get rolling until it has virtually marked time for almost an hour, but once it gets up this head of steam the entire complexion of the picture seems to change.
Ever since I seen this movie on TCM channel, I've wanted to own. After years of waiting, someone decides to make a DVD...and Walmart sells it for a good price. I LOVE this movie and would reccomend it to ANYONE!! It's witty and you'll find yourself laughing from your very core. Five stars to the whole cast.
