THE ABSOLUTE WORST packaging of a TV Boxset EVER
on March 31, 2012
I own or have rented dozens of television series boxsets. I can say that this Little Britain Third series is horrendously packaged, with terrible menus and layouts.
4 stars for the program material, but no stars for the format.
The back cover has tons of writing on it, but nowhere on it does it state HOW MANY EPISODES it contains! Well, only after unwrapping it, did I find out.
6 episodes at about 28 minutes each!!
6 episodes? In a tv "series"?!!! RIPOFF!!!
The outsides of the disks don`t even tell you which episodes are on which disks. Actually, the dvd outsides have NOTHING written on them!!
There is no episode menu. The only dvd to actually HAVE episodes doesn`t even have a "list of episodes." After putting a dvd into the dvd player, previews come on instantly, and you CANNOT SKIP THEM. Therefore, from the moment you insert the dvd into the player to the time an episode actually starts, it takes about 4-5 minutes. VHS is faster than this garbage.
Tape the season from tv. It`s only 6 episodes. The picture quality is pretty good. I`ve seen much better much more often.
Unfortunately, this wonderfully-written and acted program does not deserve this piece of trash formatting at all. It seems a 6-year old put this trash together....no wait. A 6-year old can do better. More likely a preschooler.
Stay away. Save your money.
