It Won't Contain All Playoff Games, But It Will Have All WS
K. Palmer | Illinois | 01/10/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I have found out through some web searching that this set will contain 7 DVDs which will contain the 4 World Series games against the Astros, plus the series clinching games against the Red Sox and the Angels for a total of 6 games. I assume the 7th disc will contain bonus material.
It would have been nice to have all 12 games in the White Sox' run (or at least the 11 victories), since the two clinching playoff games were on the road, but I assume the DVD producers don't think the market justifies such a set given that the World Series had a low viewer rating. But it should be a great addition to a White Sox fan's video library!"
SOUTH LOOP SOX FAN WANTS MORE GAMES INCLUDED
Tyson K. Lagoni | Chicago-South Loop | 03/15/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)
"After 88 years of waiting, how much more expensive would it have been to include all the post-season games on this box set? The games you are leaving out included some of the most thrilling post-season baseball moments of all time, including the A.J. dropped third strike and for Chicago fans, being able to watch the first ALCS games in 22 years and first World Series games in 46 years to be played in the city.
I HIGHLY suggest they release a Volume II with all the other post-season games. I will still buy this because as a die-hard Sox fan, I buy any and everything commemorating the World Series Victory."
Great production values; a must-have for White Sox fans
A regular guy | Illinois, USA | 03/31/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Here's what you get:
- Full coverage of clinching Game 3 vs. Boston in ALDS
- Full coverage of clinching Game 5 vs. Anaheim in ALCS
- All 4 World Series games agains Astros
- Footage of locker room celebration, victory parade, and division clinching win in Detroit
The production values of this set are outstanding; each DVD is individually packaged in a slim DVD case. The outside of the case contains game stats (attendance, length of game, box score, etc.) and trivia, while the inside of the case has game recaps. The DVDs themselves are arranged with every half-inning as a "chapter", so you can browse to the bottom of the 6th against Boston with ease at any time. The packaging and production of the DVDs is first rate.
The only "complaint" that I have is that it really is less intense when you know what's going to happen, but every true Sox fan needs this set; it really blows grainy Tivo footage out of the water."
Worth the purchase

"I would recommend this purchase. It contains the clinchers of both the ALDS and ALCS, along with the four World Series games. I have waited since the final out of the October classic for the release, and it's worth it. I got to relive all the moments that I will cherish for years to come.
If I had any complaints, they would come from the first disc, against the Boston Red Sox. The quality of that is slightly lacking with green specs occassionally, including the famous bottom of the 6th inning. It's not enough to get frustrated over, but I did find it bothersome that this was in the way. Also, the MLB logo is in the left bottom corner in each game, and though it annoyed me at first, my vision adjusted accordingly to phase it out of my mind. Each game is wide screen. I also noticed in the game 3 marathon, that they cut a short bit out of the broadast to perhaps cut time. The pitching count was still the same in between them, so they might've cut it out due to time constraints. You'd have to pay close attention to catch this, and it's in extra innings. That DVD was 4 hours and 20 minutes long.
The bonus DVD was interesting, though shorter than I was expecting (58 minutes). I wish they released this a month later so they could've added the ring ceremony, as the other World Series have. But overall I thank A&E and hope they continue this trend for years to come. World Series are special events that provide memories for everyone baseball fan. I was honored my city got to play in one in my lifetime."
