I have watched about three or four of the series and find they are slow paced, but do have some new material that has been discovered or understood only in recent years. I have seen TUT, Chinese Warriors and my favorite, recent info on what have been called the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. It is not just talking heads and still pictures, but re-enactments and lots of detailed information on new technology.
