I own this Archer: Season Two DVD set, and for some strange reason both my DVD players lock up when I try to play Disc One, Episode Five. It won't play through direct selection from the menu, it won't play as part of a "Play all episodes" command, it won't play at all. Episode Four and Episode Six play normally. I can only conclude that my disc has some physical defect that is not visible, or there's a programming glitch on the DVD itself, either with the structure or the file containing this episode. I haven't seen any mention of this, so: has anyone else experienced this strange problem?
Sounds like a compression issue, perhaps? I would try and return the disc(s) for an exchange and see if the problem still exist. I purchased both seasons 1 and 2 of Archer when BestBuy had their $7.99 Black Friday sale but have not watched yet.
