This mini-series is like a diamond-in-the-rough that's just gotten its first polishing.
(one or two spoilers) Normally, I avoid sports history programs like the proverbial plague. Mostly, because they concern sports I _don't_ watch, in the first place. But, this mini-series has a different approach. It's fast-paced, funny, and informative. They even give you a recap of the voted-on tally every time they come back from commercial (so you never lose track)!
My favorite episode, thus far, was the 25 biggest blunders. It was absolutely hilarious (for the most part)! I seriously think, however, that the game-losing fumble--from NYGiants/Phil.Eagles, circa 1978--should have been the Number One blunder. My only other nitpick? They don't list those cue card girls in the ending credits!
So, my final scoring of this is: 3.5 stars.
