I'd say either the one about the U or the Red Sox vs Yankees 2004 series

so sick of red sox/yankees, so i didn't see that one among a couple others i missed, but for me it was June 17, 1994. i didn't know that whole OJ fiasco was on that level plus all the other events going on.

i'm hoping there will be a gigantic box set once all 30 are released.

watched the one about divak and petro. I didn't know a lot about yugoslavia and the war in the 90s, it was really interesting. The ricky williams one was great too.

I'd say either the on the Red Sox or Ricky Williams. The one The U was badass, but that mainly just because you got see like two hours of the U's swag. Documentary wise the first two were great.

I've only seen a handful but I found the Rickey Williams and Allen Iverson one's to be really interesting.

I missed the Tupac/Tyson one but hopefully I'll catch the re-run.

Watching it right now. Vlade is one of the most legit nice dudes in sports... I always liked his game too. One of the best passing big men of all time. That Kings team was so fun to watch.

The Tupac/Tyson one was really disappointing. It had massive potential.

I watched the U and caught part of the Escobar one at a sports bar. Both were awesome imo. Haven't seen any others.

I met Vlade out here in Sac at his club. He's a really nice person IRL which was refreshing. Dude was a chain smoking fool! haha

Dammit. I was hoping they wouldn't butcher that one. (Tupac is a personal hero for me)

I'm a red sox fan so nothing really tops the obvious as it brings back the crazy memories of that year.

Most insane series ever. I'm sure I lost 10 years of my life watching all those games. Anyone who's not a red sox fan really cannot understand how that whole thing went down and the way people felt through that series and afterwards.

What if I told you that the "Two Escobars" and "The U" were the best?

I'd agree.

And say Len Bias was the third best.

But I haven't seen the latest, everyone says it's awesome.

It is, you should check it out for sure.

Pretty sad :(

But a good watch, IMO...

For sox fans and baseball fans in general, the 10th Inning (Burns followup to Baseball) is awesome. I'm not a sox fan, I kind of grew to despise them through the last 5 years, but after watching the sox portion of the 10th inning I can see how intense and amazing it was for fans.
It also touches on everything from Bonds/Steroids to Latinos making it in baseball. Very cool and I recommend it to anyone who liked the 2004 sox 30 for 30.

The recent Marcus Dupree one was pretty good
