Great series! But the transfer from DVD to Instant went wrong
on July 19, 2013
I love this series. I think the transfer from video to DVD then from DVD to instant went south. It's not terrible; but it's not great.
In order for Roseanne or Dan's heads to not be cut off the picture has to be smaller than a typical flat screen TV. So there is a black box around the actual video in your TV. If you make picture full screen, it is grainy and like I said...their heads get cut off.
Then there are times where the video just messes up completely. In episode 3 the episode decided to fast foward for no reason. Over all the series is not generally affected by these mess ups, but the viewing quality could be better. I'm wondering how much better the DVD quality is? I've watched this on Netflix and didn't have a problem. It was crystal clear, and full screen.
