I want to get the "Into the West" set for my dad for Christmas because he's something of a history buff and we took a trip to the west this summer and are both interested in the region. I've been looking around for reviews and can't find any. I'm interested in knowing the following: 1)How is the quality, audio and video? 2)How is the series itself? Well-written, acted, etc? Also, interested to know where exactly the series takes place. Anybody who's seen the set and wants to lend an opinion, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
