First off, this is a typically excellent NFL Films documentary. It covers the team origins and the 1964 and 1965 AFL championships nicely, with good footage of Cookie Gilchrist, Lou Saban and Jack Kemp. Plenty of footage on O.J. and the Electric Company, Joe Fergusen and the early 1980s, then lots of great coverage of the late 80's, early '90s dominance. The reason I gave it three stars is because they messed up the bonus features. The box shows six bonus features on the first disc, but four of them are not there (two were replaced with others). The program does not include the features on Jack Kemp, Cookie Gilchrist, Thurman Thomas or Jim Kelly! Instead, it includes Marv Levy, Bob Kalsu, Scott Norwood and Joe Delamielleure. Same problem with the second disc. It advertises a bonus feature on the 1963 Bills season, which is not there. Instead, it has an excellent America's Game program on the 1990 season. Being a fan of the 1960s NFL and the four-superbowl run the Bills made in the 1990s, I wished the as-advertised bonus features were actually on the discs.

I liked this dvd. It provided the history of Buffalo Bills in a detailed manner. But do not trust what the back of the case said esp. when it is saying that it has 1963 Buffalo bills highlight on 2nd disc and has features of Jim kelly on 1st disc. There are 4 less features than it is stated and on 2nd disc, instead of having 1963 Bills highlight, it has 1990 Buffalo Bills America's game missing rings.

As my title states, I'm not what you would label a Buffalo Bills fan by any stretch of the imagination. That being said, I purchased the DVD in the hopes that it would have some good footage from the 60's and 70's that would add to my archives of NFL Films material that I already have. Needless to say, I was very happy with the purchase that I made here. Great background material on the Bills during their formative AFL years, and the link that both the team and the owner had with the Detroit Lions of the NFL. In addition, the interviews with Lou Saban, Billy Shaw and the coverage provided to the Bills championship teams of the mid-60's were equally enjoyable. And as can be expected, a great deal of coverage was spent on the OJ Simpson years, as well as the Bills run in the late 80's, early 90's. What made this DVD get 5-stars though was the bonus features of the NFL "Missing Rings" episode of the 1990 Bills, along with the AFC Playoff game comeback against the Houston Oilers. Those two items were worth adding to my library alone. The other "extras" contained segments on Bob Kalsu and Marv Levy as well.

Would I have purchased this DVD at full price? Probably not, as I managed to find a new copy for about $5.00. But if you are a Buffalo Bills fan and looking to add to your collection, know that much of the material presented here was not a bunch of recycled material from old NFL DVD's or VHS reels from before. For that, I give NFL Films kudos on the compliation that they came up with here.

Gives a lot of history of the early AFL years. I was surprised the 1st video didn't comment on the 4 back to back Superbowl appearances of the Bills in the early 1990's (painful for all Bills fans). Unless you're a football historian, or an ardent Bills fan who watched them from the beginning you'll probably find some unexpected surprises. But for the those who aren't ardent Bills fans you most likely won't appreciate this, and feel the pride of those days, or even know the records and players. Most likely meant for we ardent Bills fans, through good times and bad. Maybe they'll make a sequel regarding the Rex Ryan years, considering he used to curse at his new team. God bless Ralph Wilson, Lou Saban and Coach Levy.

All I can say is that I am one proud Bills fan after watching this DVD! I would recommend it for anyone who calls themself a fan...It's certainly not easy to capture a team's 50 year history in only 1 hr and 45 minutes but this release is solid. You'll learn not just about the team, but which players & coaches were most beloved by Bills fans and the city of Buffalo. I've only had the chance to watch the main documentary so far, but that alone is worth buying this DVD for!

I bought this set for my husband for Christmas last year and he just loves it. He sat on the couch and teared up over certain parts of it. He was very appreciative of it. The service was great - it arrived a day early even so close to Christmas! Thank you Amazon!

Hubby loved it. He is a die hard fan, even though he hates to admit it. This will help him remember why he was a fan to begin with.
