I'll give this five stars for the general concept, and I'm certainly happy to see these games again. But I disagree with some of the game selections.

First, only four of the ten games are home games (and only three at the old Spectrum). There was a special magic of Spectrum games.

Second and related...there were other games that really could have been added instead:

- Game 6 of the Conference finals against Quebec, in May of 1985, when Dave Poulin scored a shorthanded goal while the Flyers were two men short. The Spectrum EXPLODED when Poulin beat Mario Gosselin high to the glove side. Flyers won this game 3-0 to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals

- Game 5 of the Conference finals against Boston, in May of 1976, when Reggie Leach scored 5 goals at the Spectrum.

There are a few others I could mention, but those are the two biggest, and certainly could have been chosen over some of the more recent road games. I see there's a new DVD coming out in April on the history of the Flyers - hopefully it will cover some of these classic moments.

I am a young Flyers fan, so getting to see some of the classic games in their entirety is great. It also gives a glimpse in how the game has evolved over the decades.

This is a great collector's item for any die hard Flyers fan. To have the complete games of such unforgettable moments in Flyers' history (the Cup wins, the 1987 Game 7 against Wayne Gretzky's Oilers) is priceless. But the whole package will seem hugely biased to any true Flyers' fan. Missing are any games representing the years from 1988 through 1999: namely the Lindros Era. I don't know if Flyers' management was so anti-Lindros that they left the 90s out altogether, but included as two of the ten greatest Flyers' games ever are two games from their 2004 Conference Final run. ?! Really? That's more exciting than their 1997 Cup run with Lidnros? Or any game where the Legion of Doom dominated? Their return to the playoffs in Lindros' MVP season of 1995? The last three games in the set are only passingly interesting because you know the players all left and never made it to the Finals. It's a shame we don't have a DVD to commemorate those amazing Lindros Era teams in this set.

Good mix of classic vintage Flyers and more recent years.
Can't go wrong with this DVD set.
Only issue is there is no games with Eric Lindros. This is who I grew up with and was disappointed that I couldn't relive the "Big E" days.

I got this set as a Christmas gift back when it first came out, but never got the urge to watch it (and in fact I still haven't watched games 9 and 10 yet). Now, I'm a die-hard Flyers fan. Grew up with my parents watching them in the 70s and 80s, and once I graduated college, got a job and got married, I settled into the usual "married guy" habit of watching lots of sports on TV. I've probably seen 90% or more of the Flyers' games since the mid-90s. But the idea of watching these decades-old games when I already know the outcome just doesn't appeal to me much. There's just too much "dead space" between the interesting parts of the games.

On the plus side, it's interesting to see the game from a time when no one wore helmets (surprising how many players had bald spots), the goalies stood up for the most part and had tiny-looking pads, and the game seemed to be played at about half the speed of the current NHL. I'm wondering how many of the guys on those Stanley Cup winning teams of the 70s (not just the Flyers but any team) would even make it to the NHL today.

The down side is that the audio and video quality of some of these recordings are just brutal. It's not until game 5 of this set that the picture and sound approach half-way decent. It's kind of amazing they couldn't find better recordings of the deciding games of the Stanley Cup finals. Some of the games are even missing parts of periods due to "technical difficulties". The most glaring example of that is game 6, a Flyers/Rangers playoff game from 1985 - with less than 40 seconds left in the game and the Flyers clinging to a 1 goal lead, it just suddenly switches to that "due to technical difficulties, portions of this game are unavailable" card and then ends. What the heck?
