    I am a big fan of hockey, and I love watching the NHL Winter Classic Game! This is a fantastic show by HBO to watch for an inside look of the hockey players and coaches in the weeks leading up to the NHL Winter Classic Game! I also enjoy Liev narration of the show!

    A great production, left me wanting more. Unfortunately the Pens lost and, in particular, Sid sustained such a substantial injury.

        Comments about this product:

        When this came out on HBO in 2010, it was the best behind the scenes experiences I've ever seen. Everything was well done from the cinematography to the sound track. So naturally when this was released on DVD I had to have it. Sadly HBO really dropped the ball on making this really cool for fans by adding absolutely no special features and also they removed half of the amazing soundtrack for the DVD version without mentioning on the product site. There was a really cool chance to add some deleted scenes and extra footage, even if it was raw footage that I think fans would have found fun to watch and worth the buy. Lastly, a blue ray option would have been a nice touch too, but I can understand how the small market size for buying this product could have nixed that. Final call on buying this would be to just hope it comes back on HBO GO and save the money.

            This show was incredible. It was really interesting to see what goes on behind the scenes. I was disappointed when I watched it and some of the original music had been taken out. The original music was integrated so well with the scenes and the new music just doesn't have the same effect and really takes away from the overall quality of the show. There aren't any bonus features just the episodes which was also a little disappointing. However, the show itself is so beautifully shot it is a must see for sports fans.

            Comments about this product:

            I've waited many months and 2 pushed-back dates to receive my pre-ordered DVD of 24/7 Pens Caps, and I was very disappointed to watch the series and realize most of the music from the original shows has been taken out. The series is still beautifully compiled and a wonderful gift to hockey fans, but I wish I had saved the original episodes on my DVR (I deleted them when the DVD came, before I watched it). The new music seems inappropriate for the chosen scenes and is overall unremarkable. I realize this is too much to ask, but maybe when the DVD does well HBO can re-release a special edition with bonus features and the original music. With the new music, the series loses some of its original sparkle.

                I love hockey and seeing it portrayed in such a way like this was amazing. I don't regret buying it for one second...except for that lack of some of the music used when it was first aired (no "Man In Black" by Johnny Cash, etc.) The music really fit the mood in the scenes it was used and I was a little disappointed when I got the DVD and it didn't have that. But, still a great documentary and an inside look into the game nonetheless.

                  I am a huge hockey fan (SJ Sharks) and look forward to the Winter Classic every year regardless of who is playing. This series did an amazing job at not only promoting the game but really giving you all access... and I mean all access. One of my favorite scenes was when they took a camera into the ref's locker room so you can watch the ref's rehash a questionable call over a beer. Ever wonder what players are really saying to the ref's on the ice? You get to hear it. Ever wonder what a coach says to his players after they played a terrible 1st period? You get to see it. This show is professional sports in it's rawest form and it doesn't matter if you are a hockey fan. If you love any professional sport, you will love this series.

                            Hockey fans receive a raw and real all access pass to the lives of players & coaches on and off the ice. For anyone who is unsure about hockey, I dare you to watch and you'll be at a game in no time! It leaves you wanting more as each segment comes to an end.

                                As a Caps fan, it was entertaining to see what goes on beyond what I see at a practice or a game -- inside the locker room between periods, their lifes outside of the rink, etc. Production value was very high, which is why I hope it gets released in blu-ray.
