Anthology is a compilation of sorts of the Transworld videos to date, with heavy emphasis on the years 1995-2000. Using voice-over interviews, slow-motion montage sequences and a handful of featured skaters, the video highlights some of the top skateboarding of those five years. The soundtrack alternates between indie rock and electronica. There's quite a mix of different skating, but big tricks down handrails and over stairs comprise the majority.

The skating in this video is phenomenal. That said, it is odd that I didnít feel more inspired to skate after watching it. The slow-motion montages and emotional music give Anthology a dramatic quality that makes the video more like a television special rather than a video I would watch before heading out for a session. Its presentation makes the skaters seem like professional stuntmen rather than people you would hang out or skate with. This may be because they are all so damn good. Just watch Heath Kirchart as he destroys handrails and kickflips huge gaps. Ditto Chad Muska. Or Tom Penny as he performs skate voodoo over a chain-to-bank gap. The Neal Mims ollie to handrail to faceplant part brought me back to reality. The squeamish may want to have a finger ready on the fast-forward button. Fans of the horror magazine, Fangoria, may not.
