I have to say that other than the technical difficulty, the quality of this DVD is excellent. Video is crisp and sharp and sound is good (for a mono 1980 miniseries). The series itself stands the test of time and is as good as always. Of course, we're talking Judith Krantz, so it is as sappy and cheesy as you can expect it to be. The discs themselves are professionally produced, with great artwork and printing both on disc and keepcase.
Something else I would like to point out. That Warner Bros. is releasing titles 'on demand' on DVD-R seems to be the answer for a dwindling economy, which would otherwise see many of these titles never released. I applaud Warner Bros. for taking this route. I wish SONY would take the hint and use this method to release TV series that they release one season of and then never release the rest due to less than multi-million dollar sales. With this 'on demand' system, everyone wins (especially the customer). Thanks Warner Bros.!
Lotte, please give the dvd another once-over. I'm sure there are some things you've missed. Or maybe you were viewing on a bad day. "Scruples" is an excellent choice of material and a pertinent display of dramatic caliber that should still be apart of your movie collection.

That being said I loved the casting of Bostwick as Spider Elliot and Marie-France Pisier as Valentine, though she did not quite match the physical appearance of the character. She resembles the fiery redheaded Valentine about as much as Wagner resembles Billie, which is to say not quite. Bostwick could not have been more perfect IMHO, but several cast members, Kim Cattrall as well, you have to really work at suspending belief if you have actually read Krantz's book before seeing this.
I love Krantz's work for what it is. I enjoy a good trash novel once in a while but Krantz's miniseries they are definitely hit and miss in terms of casting sometimes. You have these characters who are really young being played by people twice their ages. Hair colors change on a whim. It can be a bit confusing if you have actually read these novels a lot as many people did before the mini series thing started.
I enjoyed watching this one, but it left me feeling a bit flat. Scruples was such a great read and this miniseries just doesn't quite live up to it really. Then again it's better than Scruples II, the book, which blessedly was never made into a film and which I admittedly loathe.
