5.0 out of 5 stars Good Documentaries - Nice Packaging December 15, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been waiting for the 30 for 30 set on DVD since they started running the documentaries. I've only been able to catch bits and pieces of them when aired, but I knew it was only a matter of time before the DVDs hit.

If you have anybody on your holiday gift list that likes sports and is hard to buy for, try this. Just about everything in the sports world from Gretzky to Reggie Miller to the USFL is touched on, so any general knowledge sports fan, like myself, would be thrilled.

I have not watched all 15 (remember, this is volume 1) of the films, probably 5 or 6 so far, and they are all pretty good. Some are more interesting than others, but that will come down to personal preference.

The packaging is great. Inside the slide out box are six slim cases that have the films split across six discs. I bet they could have got it down to four, but then they couldn't charge as much! Some people may hate the "raffle" ticket type design that is on the packaging and the menus, but I really like it.

My only complaint thus far is that the menus seem slow. It's possible that it's my PS3, so I will not deduct for it, but just wanted to mention it.

All in all, a great collection for sports fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant January 2, 2011
Format:DVD
My brother got me this for Christmas, and it is fantastic! I am a fairly casual sports fan so I didn't know what my level of interest in all different documentaries would be (I have never watched hockey or rugby, and I am not wild about basketball), but to my amazement, I was absolutely captivated by all 15 segments. My initial impression was that it would be more geared to the avid sports fan using a lot of dry statistics and specialized knowledge of the games (which couldn't be more boring to me), but instead it encompasses everything that makes sports so fascinating. It is about the struggle of communities versus corporations (That Band That Wouldn't Die), goodness versus glamour (King's Ransom, Run Ricky Run), aging legends (Muhammad and Larry), and microwave dynasties (The U). This is a brilliant dvd collection that isn't just about sports, but everything that is wonderful (and terrible for that matter) about sports. It is history, it is culture, it is humanity. It is tears of triumph and tears of defeat, and these are the stories that, in a lot of ways, bring people together and tear people apart. Sports, like art and literature, is a reflection of culture and this collection brilliantly marries the two. This is a must own for any sports fan, history fan, film-maker, or cultural analist. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must own for sports & American history February 15, 2011
By Timber
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Correction: this is a 16:9 format, not a 4:3 as is stated on Amazon. While it is not currently available on Blu-ray format, much of the file footage is pre-HD sourced. Similar for those familiar with the documentary "Tyson," the DVD format is suitable for most. Upscaling via most Blu-ray players and a HDMI cable will please the majority of viewers.

As this is an ESPN production vs. HBO Sports, the language is toned down, yet still tells the story. I enjoy the personal connection that each film maker has with each piece. The depth of candid interviews (some better than others) is on par with Frontline - making me wonder "how did they get this individual to go on camera?!"

For those considering buying a single release of their "favorite," 30 for 30, I highly recommend paying just a little more to receive almost 24 hours of content!
Many of the stories transcend sports, and dig into the core of American society.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sports Lover's Dream January 14, 2011
By Lisa K
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this collection for my husband for Christmas. He had seen a few on TV and really liked them. I am not a big sports fan but I find these docs to be truely fasinating. I never understood what the "pony express was", in fact my husband was watching an SMU game on tv and I said "Who are they, and when did they get so good." My ONLY complaint is that it is not ALL 30 films. But the 15 that are there are well done. Sports lover or not... Great Collection!

Volume 2
No idea about Vol 2 DVD set release. As for the unreleased episodes, films under the 30 for 30 banner will continue on in future years, but with only about 4-5 films a year. 3 films that have been filmed but didn't air, including Alex Gibney's doc on Steve Bartman, will air in 2011.

It's available at walmart.com for $45.96 and guaranteed December 24th delivery. But that's only if you feel like supporting the evil conglomorate of Wally World.
