Editorial Reviews

Step into the swirling chaos of the country s most magnificent storms in Storm Chasers: Up Close and Personal. DVD features Storm Chasers Greatest Storms 2010, where extreme chasers Tim Samaras, Reed Timmer, Joel Taylor, Dr. Josh Wurman, Chris Chittick, Ginger Zee, Matt Hughes, and IMAX filmmaker Sean Casey will stare down the most intimidating storms of Tornado Alley in search for what fuels the fury of these devastating beasts. Plus, a special one-hour Behind the Storms episode allows viewers to experience a day in the life of one of the most dangerous jobs in television. Through interviews and documentary footage, the production crew will explain how they scurry to keep up with the storm chasing teams and describe the drama that develops while working under the most intense conditions. Storm Chasers: Up Close and Personal will give you an intimate look at the struggle to be in the wrong place at the right time and risking it all to provide an inside look at one of nature s deadliest weapons.

1.0 out of 5 stars Induces Motion Sickness March 5, 2014
By Toddboy
The producer needlessly switched camera footage so rapidlyand often that I could not enjoy the beauty of a building storm, nor the numerous splendid funnels that were revealed only briefly. I actually could not watch the entire storyline due to induced motion sickness. Also the video is more about people interaction than about storms. Only purchase this video if you are already afflicted with AHDD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not all the storms are in the sky.... February 22, 2014
Verified Purchase
This was an more an interesting inner look at the Chasers and their interactions with each other than it was about the storms they were chasing and I must admit, little has changed since the days of JP Finley. There was more storms and changeable weather amidst some of the Chasers than there was in the Oklahoma skies. The biggest problems seemed to be between Sean Casey and Josh Wurman who seemed to view Casey with disdain toward his goals, viewing him as more of an interloper than a fellow chaser. I will admit the TIV and the TIV2 have become Iconic and the landscape would certainly be the poorer without them. As for Reed Timmer and the Dominator, Casey had his own disdain, poorly hidden for that, believing that his own idea had been usurped by Reed. The only one who was on an even keel was the late Tim Samaras, who had his own approach to the work at hand and was able to steer clear of the obvious ego fest everyone else seemed to indulge in. While I found it somewhat annoying, I did find it interesting, and a with deeper insight as to some rather volatile personalities out there in the field.
