The Presidents Collection (2016/History Channel/A&E/Lionsgate DVD Set)

Picture: C Sound: C Extras: D Main Program: C+

History takes a look at the American President from the first president to present day in The Presidents Collection (2016). The President of the United States of America, the leader of what is now known as the free world, and champion of freedom and liberty. While there were some great Presidents, most of them we will barely remember. The condition of United States of America is a testimony to their legacy and their accomplishments/failures. With each President, they seem to test the integrity of a nation and can a republic for the people withstand the test of time? And what SHOULD a President BE to be to The United States of America?

The American President is considered to be one of the most powerful men in the world and here, The History Channel takes a look into the evolution of the President with The American Nation. How they have shaped and changed a nation? Often they challenged the ideas of freedom, liberty and democracy. They have questioned the people's rights, but who did it apply to? We have gone to war, but to build what sort of nation afterwards? But what DOES America stand for? And what DOES the President fight/work for? Ideas, power, wealth, it's people or the freedom and equality for all mankind?

In other installments, this program looks a back at history and those who became President of the United States of America, through the eyes of historians, pictures and books they judge the Presidents not for what they intended or why they were elected ...but for what they accomplished for the United States of America. Even years after their tenure and life it is easy to compare them to modern presidents and to judge them by their strengths (and weaknesses) when history has already proven them to be either wise and good leader, or just a another footnote in history.

The widescreen, anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image and lossy Dolby Digital sound are a mixed bag, so only expect so much from playback performance, plus we get no extras.
