3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed by lack of English subtitles, 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shakespeare Collection 2: THE TEMPEST / AS YOU LIKE IT / THE WINTER'S TALE / MEASURE FOR MEASURE / TWELFTH NIGHT / THE TAMING OF THE SHREW / THE MERCHANT OF VENICE / ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL (8 DVD Box Set) [import] (DVD-ROM)
I was familiar with most of these BBC versions of Shakespeare before I bought the collection and believe them to be good quality productions. However I was disappointed to find that there were no English sub-titles as I find reading sub-titles very useful when watching Shakespeare on TV. Checking back I see the small print did show that there were only sub-titles in Dutch but unfortunately I missed this. It seems the other BBC productions do have English, why not this one?

This review is from: Shakespeare Collection 2: THE TEMPEST / AS YOU LIKE IT / THE WINTER'S TALE / MEASURE FOR MEASURE / TWELFTH NIGHT / THE TAMING OF THE SHREW / THE MERCHANT OF VENICE / ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL (8 DVD Box Set) [import] (DVD-ROM)
These productions are now quite dated both in style and in production, but still very watchable for all that. Fun to spot the acting superstars of today when they were still learning the ropes.

These BBC made dramas are all excellent. A nice selection of plays, brilliantly adapted and made with the BBCs typically excellent style. A huge number of respected, even beloved British actors add the final cherry on the cake.
