UPDATE: WB has since removed the listing from their website, and I have been informed they are working on the issues (not sure about the chapter marks, though). I contacted customer support and they informed me that I am on the re-ship list when the problems are fixed. I suggest all who have purchased this to do the same to be sure you will get a new copy. I am changing my rating to a 3, and possibly a 4 after I receive the new copy.
I bought this directly from WBshop.com, the only place (and price) to get it from. I'm posting this here as a public service:
I'm not so sure about the quality of these discs...they aren't even dual-layer 8.5GB, they only come in at just over 4GB in size. With 5-6 episodes per disc, that doesn't bode well for the bitrate of the content. It looks grainy as if it was recorded from an over-the-air rabbit-ear broadcast from back in the 80s. It doesn't look like any digital enhancements were done at all.
On my copy, the first episode of the first disc has an audio/video synchronization problem where it is off by about a second. It starts near the middle of the episode and lasts through the end of the episode. I haven't yet found any audio problems with other episodes yet, and I don't know if any other customers have the same audio issue.
Each episode only had 2 chapter marks each, at 10:00 and 20:00...none at the credits, title sequence or scene breaks (where commercials would have been). This is very amateurish and makes for poor DVD navigation.
All-in-all, this set is not even close to being worth the $34.95 competition-free price tag that WB is charging. Monopoly at its finest.
