Ive only seen a few of them. I liked the one about the Knicks and the Pacers but the OJ Simpson one where they showed live footage from the day with the World Cup Opening Ceremony, NBA Finals that year was very good
Yeah I watched those 2.
Reggie Miller was an ASSASSIN on the Knicks, and Spike Lee! Great theater that was.
And watching those OJ things.... hard to believe OJ didn't serve a day for those crimes, but yet he's now in jail for much lesser things.
Yup the Drazen and Vlade episode is one of the better things I've seen on T.V. in a long time. I'm not even into the extreme sports stuff but I watched the entire episode when they had on some BMX rider can't remember the name but he was one of the pioneers, but it was extremely entertaining. The raw footage and interviews they acquired were excellent.
DA U was the best one followed by the two escobars & once brothers(drazen & Vlade).
I wanted to see the Tyson/tupac 30 for 30 but missed it.
I didn't like straight out of L.A., I thought Ice Cube did a poor job
The 2 Esobar's was so great because Pablo controlled the whole country, and his kingpin work made him the most powerful man in the world for many years, and it all was so entwined with the Columbian soccer team, and then with the World Cup, which just happened to be in the USA that year.
AND they just happened to draw playing in our pool, and lose to us. Poor Andres.
That was the best individual program I have ever seen really. Chilling.
Now Mexico is running wild, lawless with all the drugs and killing people every day all day long.
The Marion Jones one was god awful. They try to make her into the victim, and say that she only lied to Federal investigators because they were asking her questions too fast and she didn't stop to think about the consequences, so she just lied about using PEDs to federal Agents. Please. She would continue to claim she did use PEDs for more years after that.
Then she talks about how she was the victim again for being put in prison, those are what we call consequences, Marion. I don't really feel bad for her in that she cashed in on everything she did while on PEDs, and now she wants people to feel sorry for her. At one point they played the race card incinuating that the only reason she got a prison term was that she was black. And now she's leading the charge for awareness against making bad decisions. It's almost as if she feels that she made a bad decision in lying to Federal investigators, rather than using PEDs in the first place.
On top of the weak narration, boring storyline, and weak attempt at glorifying a disgraced athlete, this was by far the worst 30 for 30 that I have seen so far.
