The uneasy relationships between classes and different ethnic groups are clearly expressed and, in turn, explain why so many people were so eager to get on a ship, which was the only way to get to America at the time.

The broadcast ratings fell throughout the miniseries airing, largely due to the somewhat confusing nature of the storytelling, jumping from past to present repeatedly.

Also, with so many storylines to watch, we never really see an epic love story we want to root for, as in other theatrical tellings of the sinking.

Available on DVD, BluRay disc and BluRay/DVD combo pack, the two full hours of bonus features include six making-of featurettes and “Titanic — Behind the Production.”

Also included is an informative documentary, “The Curse of the Titanic Sisters,” which chronicles the company that built the Titanic and details the doomed history and flawed design of her and her sister ships, the Olympic and the Brittanic.
