This is a terrific series on the English Civil War, told through the eyes of members of two families. The cast is top notch, the writing is great, and the costumes are superb. Hair is on point for the period, especially for the women. The choreography for the swordfights is astonishing, as is the staging for the battle scenes all before CGI. This first series set is on four Dvds and is in region one for US DVD players.
