Rated 5/10. I wasn't overly impressed with this series and stopped watching three episodes in.

A similar theme was done much better with the series called, "The Paradise".

We too are enjoying watching this series again, without a year’s wait between seasons. Great series.

First season in three disks. I loved watching the shows back-to-back without having to pay Amazon for the pleasure. When season two started on PBS, I had forgotten how season one ended. Now, I'm up to speed and can't wait to watch the remaining seasons.

An amazing family saga of a bygone era. Gorgeous settings and costumes and great acting. You'll be hooked from the first episode!!

I watched "Mr. Selfridge" over 3 nights. Each night I became more hooked on the family and the employees of the department store. PBS had four seasons of the Masterpiece Theater production. I eagerly awaits seeing the additional DVD's!

From the opening theme and visuals to the end of each episode, I was hooked. The costumes, the sets, the story... all of it. Selfridge is a showman as well as a retailer. Learns some bitter lessons along the way too. Turn of the 20th century was quite a wild ride.

Mr. Selfridge was an exceptional show, and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Always watch PBS/WNED on Sunday nights! Mr Selfridge will continue in January 2015 and it is good. Too bad that The Paradise had to be cancelled because of it, too much alike. Lawrence Hill's Book of Negroes will be CBC Wed nights starting January too.

Yes, it's a soap - but what a soap! And unlike Downton Abby, it's not full of itself.

Very much enjoyed Mr. Selfridge. Excellent Masterpiece Theater fare with top-notch acting, engaging storylines, and clever characters. It does take a little time to get rolling, but I invested the time and payoff is worth it. Even though how the brash American, Harry Selfridge makes his business venture take off on London's Oxford Street, was the most interesting aspect of this story to me, I did root for the characters, and their interpersonal relationships. The latter does cause the action to bog down a bit, but lends motivation to the characters and dramatic content. Looking forward to Series 2!

People will sit up and take notice of you if you will sit up and take notice of what makes them sit up and take notice.

The boss drives his men; the leader coaches them.
The boss depends upon authority; the leader on good will.
The boss inspires fear; the leader inspires enthusiasm.
The boss says ‘I’; the leader, ‘we.’
The boss fixes the blame for the breakdown; the leader fixes the breakdown.
The boss knows how it is done; the leader shows how.
The boss says ‘Go’; the leader says ‘Let’s go!’

Emmy Award-winning actor Jeremy Piven stars as American entrepreneur and colorful retail magnate Harry Gordon Selfridge. Pioneering and reckless, with an almost manic energy, Harry Selfridge created a theater of retail for early 1900s Londoners where any topic or trend that was new, exciting, entertaining-or sometimes just eccentric-was showcased. Appeals to Downton Abbey fans.
