Staring:
An insane number of amazing riders - see individual reviews (below) for each flick.

When it comes to a retrospective box-set, nothing beats seeing videos from a company's past. So much old stuff seems to have been lost in the VHS-void prior to DVD. Thrasher stepped up to the plate (although I hate baseball) and hit a home run (I really hate baseball) with the release of their first 18 videos:
1. The Truth Hurts, 2. A Need for Speed, 3. Sponsor Me, 4. On the Road, 5. Feats, 6. 911 Emergency, 7. Donut Duty, 8. Hitting the Streets, 9. Raw, 10. Skate and Destroy, 11. Vidiot, 12. Hillbilly Roadkill, 13. Hall of Meat, 14. Scorching Summer, 15. Firing Squad, 16. Timebomb, 17. Go For Broke, 18. Jaded.

This is a phenomenal box set and everyone should own it. Unlike skate companies who have put out anthologies, Thrasher, being a magazine, is not relegated to a select crew of riders. Thrasher knows what skateboarding is all about and they know how to best catch all on film. Unlike many videos with individual rider pats, Thrasher's videos treat you to an onslaught of skateboarding, music and peculiarities they found along the way.

You won't find any bonus footage outside what was originally on the VHS releases, but what the Hell, this whole box-set is a bonus. You won't find more skating at this price from anyone. So go buy your copy NOW!

If ever there were truth in advertising... this is it. This is indeed one sick box set!
