I never seemed to catch this at the right time when it was on PBS, so I bought the DVD. I'm half-way through it so far, and I really like it. I usually have a difficult time staying awake during a Ken Burns show, but not this one.

One tidbit: I never knew where he got the name "Mark Twain." It's a depth measurement (quarter twain, half twain, mark twain) used by the riverboat captains back in his day.

I'm not sure it was worth the 20 bucks, but if your video store has it, it's definitely worth renting.
