Been looking at this for a while and has to be a bargain at this, the cheapest price I've seen. Yes, sound and picture issues here and there, but the best we're going to get it seems.

I've bought one anyway! Hope it helps someone.

What a ledge (RM, not me)

RIP RIK.

Agreed.

Thanks to the editor of my post - didn't realise it was a Prime bargain. Usually £12.75 on Prime.

Wonderful series with a comedian at the top of his game. Rik Mayall, much missed.

You see what MP/MSP's get up to!

Rik Mayall was a genius, his twitter account is legendary.

the comments on the amazon page explain it:

Format: DVD
This is an *excellent* series let down only by Network's inability to properly encode a disc. Network have let us all down again with an exceedingly poor transfer indifferently encoded and packaged. I suggest you buy this set only if you cannot wait to record it from TV in what will be much better quality.

Image fidelity: 2/10
Visible under bitrate aliasing: 3/10
Colour quality: 3/10
Contrast/Brightness fidelity: 2/10
Overscan cropping: 0/10 (They just didn't do it)

So far Network have messed up every release of classic television to which they have been given the rights - with possibly the worst being Robin of Sherwood. I suggest content owners take note and stop providing priceless TV moments through a company who care little for professional pride or professional production. Alternatively, Network - I'll come to your office and show you how to correctly re-master analogue tape to DVD.

Why are they so useless at it? Presumably they have an in house 'specialist' they hired who should know how to do it? Or did they just promote the tea boy/girl?

I thought it was awful.

Piers! Fingers!
