Editorial Reviews

Highlights of NBCs coverage of the 2010 Winter Olympics from Vancouver, Canada. The ride begins with the opening ceremonies and sweeps you through the most exciting winter Olympics ever with behind the scenes and up close and personal stories that shaped the two week winter games. 240 minutes, including behind-the-scenes footage. Bonus features, too.

Customer Reviews

The OVER focusing on the US team was annoying too.
Manda Campbell
If not, does anyone know of a video I could buy that does contain that?

I'm very disappointed in the clips that are included.

Format: DVD
I cannot begin to express my deep disappointment in this DVD, and with NBC for producing it. Yes, as another reviewer mentioned, all the major players are here- for about 15 seconds each. Most of the winning performances are truncated to the last few seconds. There are few reaction shots. There are no interviews with athletes or experts. There isn't any of the special coverage shown during the games. Even the chapter page is amateurish: showing only a listing of the days whose "highlights" you can watch in that segment. This is the "Cliff Notes" version. Save your money.

For the Olympic fan, all the major players are here : Lindsey Vonn, Apolo Ohno, Bode Miller, Shaun White, Evan Lysacek, Hannah Teter, and other individual performances and highlights from both hockey gold medal games and the gold metal runs in bobsled among other things. There's even a condensed version of the opening and closing ceremonies Still I can't help but feeling for $24.95 there could've been something more. There are no interviews with athletes and none of those really cool packages NBC produced during the Olympics that helped the viewer familiarize themselves with Vancouver. The lack of interviews baffle me though because NBC through their actual on-air coverage and the Today Show interviewed virtually every major U.S. star. (I think they even interviewed Lindsey Vonn's mom at one point.) For $24.95, I expect to see athletes reacting after their victories or defeats. However, if your looking for something to capture the spirit and emotion of the Olympics, this might be for you at a lower price.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
It is difficult to find specific events in this DVD -- partly because the Main Menu is organized by Olympics Day 1, Day 2, and so on; and partly because some events simply aren't there. Kim Yu-Na, for instance, is on the screen for only a few seconds. So don't look here for her world record-setting performances (or any other figure skating performances, come to think of it). If you know what day the event you are looking for took place, that would help. But there's still no guarantee that it would be included.

It seems that this DVD is meant for casual viewing. If you would like some sports rumbling on your TV, and you aren't particular about what, then this might be for you. It does include highlights of the opening and closing ceremonies, and of performances by Lindsay Vaugn, Shaun White, and Apollo Ohno. But they are just highlights, and you have to take them as you find them -- that is, IF you find them.

Format: DVD
I lived abroad during these Olympics so didn't get to see them at the time, and wanted to catch up on all the big names and stories before Sochi. Bought this a while ago (unfortunately at full price) and just watched it. Overall a really lame assortment of events and so much wasted time. I realize there's only so much space on one DVD, but... there was too much of the opening and closing ceremonies (did we really need to see every single second of Nelly Furtado and Bryan Adams at the expense of actual sporting events?), way too much of some boring woman sitting in front of a fireplace talking, way too many fancy graphics to introduce segments, and very little actual content. Each day's coverage begins with a hyper-fast jumble of the day's big stories. (Big stories, by the way, pretty much mean "Americans you've heard of winning numerous medals" except for a few special interest items.) If one of those stories was deemed worthy, then they show the winning run of the actual event. First of all, that means redundancy, which, again, so much wasted time. Second of all, it means, hello, spoilers. If you've just told me Lindsey Vonn or whoever wins a gold and shown her crossing the finish line, that takes all the excitement out of watching it again, duh. And third, the segments they chose... just... what were they thinking? Example: I know this was a big Olympics for Apolo Ohno, but do we need to see every. single. one. of his short track races? Especially at the cost of NO figure skating? Seriously, none. Not so much as one short program. Not even Evan Lysacek's program, which beat out Evgeni Plushenko against all odds. Talk about a big story. Take out the 6 slow-motion replays of Ohno pushing a competitor on the short track and you could've squeezed in Evan's medal-winning skate.Read more ›

Format: DVD
In my opinion, this dvd did not contain any worth while figure skating coverage. My five year old was in TEARS because we could only find five second clips of actual skating. To make matters worse, there doesn't seem to be anyway to access the actual skating events, even if one is willing to pay for it. Nor does the Olympic website itself have videos of the events. I could understand if we were searching the week of the Olympics, or even that month. However, it's been close to a year. SHAME ON YOU NBC. The Olympics are not yours.

I purchased this video for the highlights from the opening ceremonies. I'm very disappointed in the clips that are included. I thought it would be a fun overveiw of Canada to use in my social studies class. The artistic journey through Canada has been edited so that most of Canada is missing. If you are interested in the opening ceremonies this is not the video for you.

2010 Winter Olympics DVD
I actually reviewed the DVD and the only thing that's on there is highlights of the Olympic Events themselves + open/closing ceremonies (condensed) and recap packages of figure skating and the success of the Canadians at the Olympics. They didn't even include any athlete interviews, which is odd... Read More
