    I realize I’m a year or so late to this discussion, but OH MY GOD! Finally made time to watch the documentary, and my wife and I are blown away. I’ve studied a lot about Vietnam and the surrounding era in college and post-grad, so I know the subject very well, and this show hits every note. It’s really stunning filmmaking.

    I’ll be making sure my kids watch this (and Eyes on the Prize) as they study that period of history.

    (PS: Hello, PBS, we’re still waiting for part two of Eyes on the Prize on DVD.)

    Ken Burns has done some great documentaries, but I agree with @Robert Crawford that this is his best work. At some point, I need to pick up the BD set -- I watched the series originally when it aired on PBS.
