Are there any periods of PWG that are particularly weak that I should look to avoid? I read on another site that the early shows when they first started aren't very good.
88 Miles Per Hour & Taste The Radness were two from 04 that I think should be given a watch.
05 there is plenty of goodness as they really hit their stride by that time. First Battle of Los Angeles tournament are obviously must see shows, same with the original All Star Weekend events. More random events that should be checked out from 2005 range from Zombies (Shouldn't Run), Astonishing X-Mas, After School Special, and Chanukah Chaos (The C's Are Silent). Overall they're quality and they have some really fabulous matches on it.
06 you can't go wrong. Even the follow up show to BOLA 06, Self Titled, has two awesome tag team matches that you should totally check out. Scoring shows during the Joey Ryan title reign is a must.
07 All Star Weekend V both nights. I easily recommend them the most. Overall. Two shows you have to own or watch or whatever. Honestly from this point on 07-now all the shows are honestly worth the cash. I haven't seen EVERY one from 2010 or 2011 but you're already hoooked so you're good on that. The promotion has gotten even better from the start of 07 on. And as a few said before this post, getting PWG Sells Out 1 & 2 is a great way to get introduced to plenty of matches from all the years prior to now.
