My copy works just fine.  Perhaps you got a bad set or your DVD player isn't
working properly.  I have no problems at all.

Rented the 3rd disc today and it looks better, but I'm a little disappointed
that the image is not as crisp or good as I would like it to be.  It's so
weird re-watching the show, I remember being in Boston when one of the
episode aired, my first FK convention, wanted to do something wild once in
my life and remembered that it was February and it was nice all week and the
one weekend I decide to do something (I never do anything, I'm as boring as
you can get) and there is a huge snow storm on the Sunday I had to drive
back home, took me 5 hours to drive to Boston From Montreal & 11 hours to
get back home in the storm, thought I was going to die, my car was a small
sprint and the wind was so strong that the car was being pushed to the side,
it was so cold in the car the heater couldn't keep up and I couldn't see a
thing in front of me, that Monday at work I was told the road I took was
called the road of death as allot of people got killed on that road.  Guess
I was one of the lucky ones, it didn't stop me, I remember not too long
after the Oklahoma bombing, I decided to give myself a special birthday
present, never went on a plane before and since there was going to be an
another convention with Geraint this time, I decided to treat myself to a
trip to Washington, D.C. using ValueJet (If I remember correctly, a few
weeks later a ValueJet plane crashed in Florida) got there a day early so I
could go sight seeing with a tour, didn't get lucky then, when we got to the
senate at 8:30am, I fell and instead of trying to stop my fall I was trying
to save my sister's camera so I ended up hurting my foot, so it was a VERY
long tour for me trying to keep up with everyone, but it was worth it, I had
a lot of fun, my foot was all blue but it was a nice trip, it was raining
that entire weekend in Montreal, and I had called in sick that Friday so I
could get there early and it was weird coming to work on Monday with a
sunburn on my nose from all the sun in Washington, but used my foot as an
excuse for not coming in that Friday, but that weekend was wonderful, I felt
like a rich person, flying down to Washington, DC for the weekend, visiting,
meeting people, it was GREAT.  These DVDs are bringing back such wonderful
memories. :)

I have to agree with Kris on this point. If I watch the DVDs on my small
TV the picture is much better than if I watch them on my high end large
screen TV.
Picture quality on those tends to be worse if your product( the DVD that
is) is not 100%, and you notice this immediately. And indeed, the
picture quality on the first 2 discs
is not the best, but tell you what:
I don't care, because I finally have FK on DVD, which means that I don't
have to worry about wearing my tapes out one day. I now have episodes
without strange cuts or commercials or the logo of the station marring
the picture. This is what counts for me, not if the pic is as crisp as
it could be. Maybe because I can still remember what it was like to have
worn  mono-recordings on tape before there was DVD and high-end sound.
As for bloopers or deleted scenes: I am glad we got what we have. Why
can't we be happy with that?
Sony might as well have said: screw them, and never produced the DVDs in
the first place.

Speaking of Crusades, did anyone else think of our crusader when watching
the "Digging for the Truth" episode on the Holy Grail that was recently on
the History Channel.  It seems that the Pope called for a crusade in France,
in 1243, to eliminate another Christian sect.  A novel that I read about
this crusade, said that Brabant was asked to defend the Cathars, but ended
up fighting with the Pope's troops.  Fanfic anybody?
