Quick Reviews: Foyle's War: The Home Front Files, Acorn US
The series. Very good. 4 to 4.5 stars.
The package. On the positive side, this is a very good transfer and is up to Acron's usual high standards. On the negative side, there's the packaging. Instead of one episode per disc Acorn could have put two episodes on each of the first four series discs. Disc three of set six was cracked so I had to return it adding a layer of annoyance into the purchase. The packaging is up to Acorn's usual standards on its larger sets: MEDIOCRE. The slipcase into which the six series regular size keepcases slip into had already split apart at its poorly glued seams before I even took the six series sets out of the Amazon box. Note to Acorn: put as much care into your slip cases as the rest of your product. Your slipcases as a general rule are quite awful. Keepcases? Well they are flimsy, very flimsy. 2.5 stars.
Summation: a mixed bag. If you only care about the series and not about the packaging go for it. 3 stars total.
