    I really enjoyed this show but I haven't got the DVDs yet but when I bought the latest Harry Potter movie at Future Shop I saw that they are selling these sets for 25.99 each. At that price I'll be getting them soon.

    So I was wondering what the picture quality is like. Also was there ever a widescreen version released?

    Eventhough it aired in 16:9, the preferred aspect ratio for the show is 4:3 (just like the Buffy 4:3 vs. 16:9 situation).

    Ah thanks Travis I was wondering about that.

    Hopefully the video and audio are decent. Can anybody chime in on this?

    I'd check out Best Buy.com and their stores. They have Seasons 1 and Seasons 2 listed at $23.99 each which means you're saving $15 off each set.

    I picked up both sets at Walmart a few months ago for $19.88 each. They had a Fox promotion going at the time. The display is no longer up, but I noticed a few of the titles mixed in with their regular inventory -- still marked $19.88. It may be worth a look.

    After much looking I finally have found a place that has season 1 of Dark Angel with no 'floaters' inside so I'll be getting both seasons in the next couple of days. Plus season one is 17.50 and season 2 is 22.80 at Wal-Mart [​IMG]

    I have both sets and the picture quality is pretty decent considering the age of the series. The first season is the best though.

    Wow - at $17.50, I'm definitely interested in finally purchasing season 1.

    I would say the picture quality is good, with some very good extras as well, including Jessica Alba and Michael Weatherley doing an audio commentary track over the last episode of season one. After Max is tazered in the prologue and John Savage has a scene taking place shortly after, Jessica says she was glad she finally had a scene where someone else had to do all the dialogue since her character was unconscious.
