4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Entertainment, Average Transfer, December 30, 2003
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cracker: Series 1 (DVD)
There's no doubt that Cracker is an outstanding series, whatever the medium. However, this transfer to DVD is disappointing. The packaging is nice, but a series like this deserves all the best, rather than mere eye-candy. I can't recall if Cracker was originally televised in the States with something other than 4:3 aspct ratio, but at least one of these discs reveals that the original aspect ratio was something other than the 4:3 this package delivers. In "One Day a Lemming Will Fly" the edges of the opening credits are actually clipped and, presumeably, so is the rest of the disc, and all the others: none of the episodes in this set are anything other than 4:3. It's a crying shame that one of the best mystery series in the history of the genre is given second rate treatment. Thank the Good Lord for inspired comapnies, like Criterion, that give fine films all of the loving care they deserve.
