From executive producer and award-winning documentarian David L. Wolper (Roots, L.A.

1 StarA special film but not a special edition - maybe 5th or 6th time of buying the release will improve over the original

3 Stars3 Stars3 StarsOnly disc 1 (1981 version) is in 2.0 sound. Disc 2 (1983 version) is in 1.0 mono sound!Why, why, why Warner? Why not in 5.1 sound ? 2.0 is bad, and now we have the 1983 version in 1.0 MONO sound, terrible ! We live in 2007 !!

3 Stars3 Stars3 StarsThis was the pic used in the original posters for the movie...so nothing wrong there:infact one of the more appropriate covers on the series.I just wish they could have come up with a more attractive cover, for me the lettering is way too large, but then you cannot please everyone.
