Admittedly I’m not a fan of baseball and prior to watching this 2017 World Series set never watched an entire inning let alone a game and honestly… I doubt I’ll ever watch a game, just not my thing. But judging solely on this set, any fan of the sport, especially an Astros fan.

ABOUT THIS RELEASE


The wait is over, the Houston Astros are World Series champions for the first time in franchise history! The Astros overcame the 104-win Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 7 of the Fall Classic. A record-setting, clutch performances and raucous crowd at Minute Maid Park all helped the Astros bring the title home to Houston.

The Houston Astros 2017 World Series Collector’s Edition includes all 7 games of the World Series, as well as a bonus disc of the pennant-clinching ALCS Game 7. Relive every moment of the 2017 Fall Classic starring Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, Alex Bregman, Marwin Gonzalez, Dallas Keuchel, Justin Verlander and George Springer.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5


This 8-disc set comes housed in an extra-wide Blu-ray keep case and has a matted slip cover. Inside is a booklet containing the stats and trivia for all eight games. There are chapter stops for the top and bottom of each inning so you can skip to your favorite moments. Otherwise, there are no features.

 


VIDEO – 3.75/5, AUDIO – 3.5/5


Each game is presented in their originally televised 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and given a 720p high-definition transfer. Although it isn’t in full 1080p (or 1080i for that matter), the picture looks fine though with the lower resolution, some shots do have some artifacting but colors are generally vibrant.

In a nice “feature” of sorts, you get three audio options (all DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0). The first is the telecast version while the other two are the Dodgers’ and Astros’ radio play-by-play.


OVERALL – 3.0/5


Overall, admittedly I’m not a fan of baseball and prior to watching this 2017 World Series set never watched an entire inning let alone a game and honestly… I doubt I’ll ever watch a game, just not my thing. But judging solely on this set, any fan of the sport, especially an Astros fan, will be more than delighted to relive what has been called a great series. The set itself might not have features but getting all 7 games, with a bonus game, is great.
