(Also available on Blu-ray)

Are you a fan of Poldark, which aired on PBS?  I got into this popular Masterpiece series after my parents were talking about, and sounded like a series I would watch.  But, when I started to watch it, it was already into season 3 and I felt like I missed much of the back story, and should wait until I could watch the series in its entirety to truly appreciate it.  So, I told my parents to not share any spoilers about the series, and I made a point to November 12th on my calendar, as this is when PBS Distribution was to release Poldark: The Complete Series (Seasons 1-5) in a DVD Collection.  It also released today on Blu-ray, for those who have a Blu-ray player.

The kind folks at PBS Distribution sent along this new DVD collection for me to review, and I have had to DVR all the Christmas movies that started to air on television, as I have been dedicating my evenings to watching this series.  I was able to start at Season 1 and have already made my way through to the end of the 3rd season.  Hopefully my Thanksgiving I will have watched all 5 seasons, and can talk all about this Masterpiece series with my parents, and other relatives who got hooked on the series and have watched it from the very start.

So far what I have watched it amazing. I can see why this series has garnered such a large following and buzz.  If you are into history dramas you will definitely love Poldark. Don't worry, I will not give away any spoilers, as I know I wouldn't want to know anything if I hadn't seen it.  And, with two more seasons to go, it seems like with every new episode the story line gets better and better.  I can't wait to see how this saga unfolds.  

As of today you can now own the DVD or Blu-ray collection of Poldark: The Complete Series -- yes, all 44 full-length episodes!  Spaced over 15 discs, fans will enjoy all the episodes of the five seasons as well as 150 minutes of bonus content including behind the scenes with the cast and crew, meeting the skilled people who design the scenery and lavish costumes for this series, as well as hear from the actors themselves about their characters and thoughts on the Poldark series.

I could go on and on about how great this PBS Masterpiece series is, but I have two more seasons to finish.  So, I will end here so that you can head on over to Amazon and order your DVD or Blu-ray collection of Poldark: The Complete Series, to enjoy, or gift to a fan of the show this holiday season.
