5.0 out of 5 stars A TREASURE FOR YOUR DVD COLLECTION, 14 Aug. 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: North and South Complete [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
My sister had added this DVD collection to her Amazon Wish List so I decided to purchase it for her Birthday - in fact, I purchased one for myself as well; not only is the price brilliant but this is a series I watched some 30 years ago on TV and had always wanted to revisit it.

It didn't take me long to watch the entire series! It is a compelling tale of the bonds and trials of true friendship with the friends finding themselves on opposing sides during the American Civil War; how their friendship began and endured the tests of time, their loves, families and enemies.

This was not just a nostalgic trip down memory lane but thoroughly enjoyable to watch (you'll have the brilliant music on your mind for ages!). If it was to be re-made today I suppose certain elements of it would be far more dramatic with the effects available to film makers, but I personally would not want to see that.

It is particularly good to see (the tragically late) Patrick Swayze in an early starring role, pre-Dirty Dancing, I think, for which he always seems to be best remembered. I highly recommend this to any Swayze fan who has not seen it and, indeed, to anyone interested in what I have written above.
