"I disagree with the other 2 reviewers. You don't buy videos just to have nice chapters, but rather to watch the performances; who cares about fast fowarding? This set has the complete long programs--without commentary--of many skaters, even hard-to-find perfomances like those from the 1980s and earlier. The only snippets are of those of Dick Button, Debi Thomas and Sonja Henie. The quality of the video is very good, and the music is clear. My main criticism is the lack of Russians included in the collection; it's mostly North Americans. I'd also have liked more pairs & ice dancers. But overall, it's a nice collection for skating fans, and allows you to see the changes in the sport over the last few decades."

"Both volumes 1 and 2 are a major ripoff. There is less than one hour of film on each DVD, which could hold 6 hours or more. The clips are short and only show part of the performances. Most of the DFD is blather from the commentators. I was so disappointed I almost cried. Where is Sasha Cohen, the greatest skater who ever lived?"
