I love the Giants, but I wish this was a better package
on December 21, 2010
So the World Series DVD set arrived this afternoon. I checked it out a little bit.
There is NO KNBR audio on the two games from the Philadelphia series, which I find to be a glaring omission.
I don't know about you, but I HATE the Fox announcers...especially Tim McCarver. So having KNBR's Kruk and Kuip (and Flem and Jon Miller) on the DVD set is a great bonus for me.
Unfortunately, the KNBR audio on the World Series games sounds somewhat "tinny," like they're talking into tin cans or a wastebasket. And there are a lot of silent moments where the audio does not match up to the game.
Overall, the Comcast Sports Net re-broadcasts of the playoff and World Series games--presented with the KNBR audio (and no silent moments)--are MUCH superior.
The DVD quality in the World Series 2010 set is good, but it is not close to the quality of the Blu-Ray (the beautiful, yet brief, MLB World Series recap Blu-Ray) or the HD re-broadcasts of the games on Comcast Sports Net (or even the lame edited versions on MLB Network).
But the 2010 World Series DVD set stands the test of time, and is still a must for any dedicated Giants fan. This DVD set is not a fickle DVR that may be swapped away someday or accidentally erased. And it's not a highlight film that shows parts of each World Series game without presenting the whole.
I just wish they had done a better job with this DVD set.
That's my review. GO GIANTS!!!
