We arrive in 1619 at the first settlement on the edge of the breath-taking but untamed Virginian wilderness. For 12 years, Jamestown has been populated by men, but the settlement is thrown into disarray when the first women, including Alice (SOPHIE RUNDLE), Verity (NIAMH WALSH), and Jocelyn (NAOMI BATTRICK), arrive in this land of hope and opportunity. Their determination not only survive but also prosper provokes clashes of desire, influence, and dominance with exalted men of politics and proud tobacco farmers alike. Relations with the Native Americans offer wealth and advancement but power, greed, and corruption inevitably leads to devastating conflict, the fallout of which will shape the New World for centuries to come.



This 6-disc set is housed in a standard DVD case. No features were included.


VIDEO – 4.5/5, AUDIO – 5.0/5

Jamestown: The Complete Series is presented with a 16×9 enhanced 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio as originally televised with somewhat bright colors and decent detail for standard definition. The included Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks were especially impressive, not just loud but instead the audio is spread evenly across all channels and showcases some great depth for the action scenes while also providing good dialogue levels through the center channel.
