  1. I really love the series, and found the soundtrack to be pleasantly surprising too. A portion of the proceeds from record sales go to New Heroes charities. Check out the press release or for more info.

  2. Yes, bryan is right, the series and CD soundtrack are really great, does any one know if a DVD of the series is planned to be released? The production values seem to be of higher caliber then the usual PBS short termed series, and this quality shows up on the CD as well. I hope there will be future episodes as well, seems like an endless subject to mine.
