The Program

Well, there's not much in the way of description needed right here, is there? Here we have a brief collection of highlights from the first 40 Super Bowls, beginning with the 1967 AFL/NFL Championship Game and finishing up with last February's Super Bowl win from the Pittsburgh Steelers.

That's basically it! Push play to enjoy the full 127-minute program, or you can feel free to access the stat-laden menu screen and check out the highlights from your own favorite Super Bowl. The clip packages run between 1 and 12 minutes in length, with the more recent games (generally) getting the most screen time, but the fans who are hungry for a taste of old-school gridiron classics will definitely enjoy the first 20-some chapters. (Although one wishes they coulda dug up more than two minutes of footage from some of the classic Super Bowls...)

You pigskin freaks know full well how NFL Films treats its material, so you can obviously expect great footage from the games, coupled with quality commentating and the special effects (freeze frames, slo-mo, etc.) we've come to expect from quality football analysis. Replay value will vary from person to person, but if you're a hardcore NFL enthusiast, this particular DVD feels like a no-brainer. You're getting 40 years of Super Bowl highlights in one handy disc for less than 20 bucks. The serious gridiron junkies might not like the skimpy treatment the early Bowls have gotten here, but hey, it's still a little piece of history, right?

The DVD

Audio/Video: The 2-hour clip block is presented in a perfectly crisp fullscreen format, although obviously some of the older material looks its age. Audio comes in a robust Dolby Digital 2.0. English captions are also available.

Extras: Three extra featurettes are included: Jerome Bettis: Wired for Sound (6.5 minutes of the admirable Steelers running back both on and off the field), Sounds of Super Bowl XL (4 minutes of extra sound-bites from our more recent Super Bowl), and Joey Porter: Pittsburgh's Pride (10 minute interview segment/highlight reel from the linebacker's stellar career).

Final Thoughts

Two full hours of Super Bowl highlights, and it comes complete with a handy timeline that lets you pick the game you want. Until all the Super Bowls are made available in their entirety, packages like this one are more than good enough.
