    I've been hunting high and low for the lowdown on the OUTER LIMITS season 1 set (coming out in a few weeks), but I'm coming up dry. Anybody seen anything? I'm especially concerned about the picture quality, since they're apparently cramming 32 hour-long episodes into 4 single-layer discs....

    I'm sure I read somewhere (can't find a reference at the moment, sorry) which staid that the 4 discs would be DVD18, thus each side would have 4 episodes, pretty much the standard for hour long tv episodes on disc.

    I was planning on getting Friends that day and waiting a couple weeks for this, but that may not be an option. Sounds great.

    There is no way to cram 32 hours onto 4 single-layered discs.

    Even with all the possible compression, it just can't happen.

    If the rumor is true, they would be crammed onto four double-sided discs. Have the specs been released? I pre-ordered long ago.

    I am so stoked for this release, and reading Derek's review doesn't help. [​IMG]
    I have some of the LD sets, but am really looking forward to the titles I currently don't have in my collection. 27+ hrs of some of the best, if not *the* best SF to ever grace the airwaves for the price MGM is asking is an incredible bargain.

    The Show is great, the DVD's look great and you can't beat that price for 27 hours worth of entertainment.
