Mill Creek Entertainment / Guns: The Evolution of Firearms

I fully admit that I devour movies and television. Feeding my viewing addiction can be a bit of challenge but there are ways that I can find lots of quality things to watch without having to break my bank account. One of the best ways to do that is find boxed sets where you can get a lot of things to watch often for less than the cost of one movie. I’ve looked around, a lot, and the best place I have found to get fabulous sets and even single movies is Mill Creek.

I am always amazed with the great prices and the sheer amount of titles they have to pick from. My husband doesn’t watch TV and movies near as often as I do, but there are certain topics he gets excited about and I have even been able to  find titles for him at Mill Creek. I was lucky enough to be sent a variety of titles from the new releases and will be sharing them all with you over the next few weeks.

Today I want to talk to you about the awesome documentary we were sent. The documentary, Guns: The Evolution Of Firearms, was  pulled from the mail and went right into the player.  You already know that my husband and I are very enthusiastic about our guns, and also since it is a relatively new hobby for us we still have a lot to learn. This is a seven part documentary that spans 400 years of history, it is over 4 hours long, and is filled with so many awesome facts.

The first part talks about the invention of gun powder and covers the history of guns through the American rifle. The next episode covers everything from the Flintlock to the Percussion Cap. All of episode three is about the weapons of the Civil War. Episode four starts at post Civil War weapons and ends with the winning of the west.  All of episode five is about the weapons of World War 1. Episode six is about the weapons of World War 2. And the last episode is about post WW2 through to more modern weapons like the carbine.

We actually watched it twice just because there is a lot of information to digest. There was a lot of really fascinating information that I don’t recall from school about how the gun actually shaped American history. I had no idea it played such a big role in the start of the Revolution, I had always thought it was mostly about taxes and tea. I won't giveaway more of the interesting facts because I know you want to watch it for yourself. 

If you are looking for something new to watch you can browse the full selection of titles from Mill Creek Entertainment on their website. You will find everything from family and classics, to horror and sci-fi! Make sure you stay connected with them on Facebook and Twitter too so that you never miss a new release. 

Disclosure: I may receive products in exchange for an honest review. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I personally believe will be good for my readers.
