The Series 2 Shakespeare Uncovered is insightful and interesting. These documentaries include history, biography and the real stories behind the famous plays. What makes it even more intriguing is the narration and personal passions of the six celebrity hosts. A Midsummer Night's Dream with Hugh Bonneville, Kind Lear with Christopher Plummer, Othello with David Harewood, Antony and Cleopatra with Kim Cattrall, Romeo and Juliet with Joseph Fiennes and my favorite, The Taming of the Shrew with Morgan Freeman. The Analysis and descriptions given through out the DVDs are my favorite part. Even if you have seen all of the plays, you will learn something new. I am familiar with the plays and I learned a great deal about really comprehending and understanding the story lines and the characters. If you aren't familiar with the plays, you will be motivated to see them all. You really learn about the true history of each Shakespeare play and really get to appreciate the characters and understand them. The personal passion of each of the six films really shines through because the Hosts also seem to be passionate about the films.There is a simple Scene Selection, Set Up and there are no other special features but the DVD series truly is a special feature. I give this one 5 stars!
Like the first series, the second installment of "Shakespeare Uncovered" combines history, biography, iconic performances, new analysis, and the personal passions of its celebrated hosts - Hugh Bonneville, Kim Cattrall, Joseph Fiennes, Morgan Freeman, David Harewood, and Christopher Plummer - to tell the stories behind the stories of Shakespeare's greatest plays.
