turned out nice again,
This review is from: TT 2010 Review Blu-Ray (Combi Pack with DVD) (Blu-ray)
The main feature is an edited version of the coverage seen on ITV4 during the TT this year, so you know what to expect.
On BD, the pictures are now in HD and they are brilliant. The selling point last year was the hi-motion camera (present and correct again this year). This time it's the HD on-board cameras; and the pictures are brilliant.
The problem is the absolutely dire commentary during the races. The commentators (Whitam, Parrish, Quayle) are once again pretending to be commentating on the race while watching some video after the event. This is awful and convinces no one. It may be permissible where a TV program is being made to go out the same night, but not for a disc like this. And there's no audio option to turn them off.
This disc is supposed to be a review of the races. If only the makers of this disc could watch Transworld Sport sometime to see how to do this kind of post-event reportage.
Perhaps extracts of the actual Manx Radio race commentary could be used (the commentaries used to come out on LP some years ago!).
The extras are really good and there's 4 hours of video here. And a nice touch to include a DVD for those moving to BD later.
So, almost unlistenable commentary during the races; but everything else is well up to scratch. Well worth a look for TT fans.
