A must own for sports & American history,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ESPN 30 for 30 Gift Set Collection Season I - Volume I (DVD)
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.
