This is one of the best shows that HBO produced...definitely not for the faint of heart or kids....you are glued to your seat the entire time and it just flys by....the humor, pathos, cursing, and the characters are unbelieveable. You see how these pioneers really lived, loved & died....you become bonded with the characters as you watch and having it on DVD means you can watch over and over to get the finer points you might have missed the first time around. I am sorry that Season 2 is not individually available only. The disc with Milch on it is kind of over-powering - he loves himself and lets the audience know it - but he really did a mind blowing job on this show. I can sit for 3 horus without moving watching one disc. Anyone who wants to learn about the gold miners, towns and the other odd characters of this time period need to watch this - and listen carefully to the dialog - even with the 4 letter words - it is truly worth it.
