A ‘reviewer’ on Amazon complains that the picture doesn’t completely fill his TV screen. A pity Amazon can’t stop people from posting ignorant comments.
Those idiots crack me up. The same person also did a review of Babylon 5 and said the same thing.

I dunno if they're really an "idiot". Depending on exactly what they said in their complaint, they just might be one of those people who want their screen filled. They're only an idiot if they don't understand why it's not filling their screen.

I was totally sucked in and quite surprised that it was 97 minutes long. I guess the TV 'episodes' were actually 2 hour movies.

It was part of "a series of series", The NBC Mystery Movie, where instead of a single 1-hour show every week, it was a rotating run of different shows, and they were all "movie length" (90m or 2-hour).

It’s pretty easy to be informed and find out why the screen isn’t filled. So I stick with the idiot definition. Willful ignorance From those folks.

Again, it might not be a case of being informed or uninformed. If the person complains because they think something is wrong with the disc because it's not filling the screen, that's one thing. If it's an aesthetic preference, that's something different, and has nothing to do with being informed or not. Many people just want to watch the story, and don't care about frame composition.

Did anyone get 2 disc 1’s and no disc 2 for season 1? I’ve been trying to deal with Kino for a replacement disc for weeks but had no luck. I finally gave up and returned the set for a refund. the situation has left me extremely disappointed with Kino. I’m not replacing it. Just wondering if anyone else had issues with the discs themselves.
My first season case has all the correct discs, disc 1, 2, 3 and 4. I have yet to check the other seasons, but because of your post, I did check season 1.

There's also the fact that the audio in a number of Season 1 episodes on the Blu-Ray has some problems where the sound effects and music are drowning out the dialogue as if the music/FX track has somehow "doubled up" over the regular audio. The audio at times (Particularly the construction site scene in "Blueprint For Murder") is almost indecipherable dialogue wise.

I have an import of the Season 1 Blu-Ray from Australia which I will compare to Kinos Season 1.
