Was there a thread on this series, being shown on CBC? I've seen quite a few of the episodes, apparently they have been airing on Saturday's at 7pm (since no HNIC - hope that doesn't change), because it's a fantastic series/history of hockey in Canada. The last episode I saw got into the WHA, and oh boy they showed some brutal footage from that league & era. I think alot of the stuff is 'acted/staged', and they merge that with actual footage, and read accounts from fans, interview historians, etc. Just a really good series if you like hockey.

Anyway, one of the fight clips they showed in this episode was just brutal. The dude was basically sitting on the other guy just pummeling his face in. They showed a nice Bobby Hull fight as well. Lots of good stuff in every episode, classic footage, etc. The next episode begins the Gretzky era, and they talked about how 'rivalries' are beginning to take off, and they show a nice brawl clip of the MTL-QUE game.

Very much worth watching. Whatchya say my brothers to the North? Have you caught this? Is this old, and I'm just seeing it now? As I said, i've seen many episodes so far, I record them every Saturday. I may have jumped in late though, or this may have aired once before.

I believe the episodes are also available online.

Good stuff.
