1st & Ten Complete Collection (Tango DVD)


Picture: C- Sound: C Extras: D Episodes: C-



Despite being made for HBO, or landing up there, 1st & Ten is a very forgettable, unrealistic, dreadful series starring Delta Burke about football. Before you make weight jokes, this was after she left Designing Women and was in top shape, but the ideas and scripts are thinner than anorexia in this dreadful mess about her owning a team and the trouble it causes. Too bad it is all predictable and boring.


How this ran six seasons shows how much of an empty wasteland early cable was, versus the crowded one it is now. It is the kind of show that made the Ace Awards necessary until cable crossed over permanently, ending disasters like this. Except as a bizarre curio, skip it.


The 1.33 X 1 image is very, very soft with aliasing errors all over the place from older analog transfers with detail issues, motion blur and aliasing issues. It might as well be VHS. The Dolby Digital 2.0 is barely stereo and passable, more like a TV recording of the time.
