SET 3 review: Kuralt spent 20 years perfecting what he did. He is just like you and me, and presents interesting stories about people like us. Stories of the back roads, roads less traveled. Nothing earth shattering, just fun, interesting, and out of the ordinary for common folk. It's down-home fun viewing. It is timeless, a piece of American history as inviting as any history book--MORE SO. This third set is simply more of the magic that this man created and aired for 2 decades (late 60s to early 80s). Good for all ages. Set 3 comes with SUBTITLES.
14 EPISODES, that's 57 stories for SET 3. Almost 5 hours worth of delight. Highly recommended, as is Set one and two. All educational as well as entertaining. History on film.
