Hello I'm new to this group. does dual layer dics really bother you? oh man! I really hate them. when you buy a movie that has wide and standered versions. and the disc is dual layer, It's a pain in the a$$ to remove the disc without getting fingerprint smudges on your disc. sometimes you find light scrathes on the discs. very annoying. When I bought Gilligan's Island season1 when I opened the box Auggh! the discs was dual layered. I bought other tv shows on season boxed sets like Sanford & Son, Lost In Space, it has single layer disc's. What other tv show's season box sets that you bought has dual layer disc's that you don't like?? I was wondering if gilligan's island is not the only one that has dual layer disc's? Why can't the studio's make single layer disc only, if they want to put wide & standered versions movie why don't they just put 2 disc's in the box just like one studio did for Rambo movies series, disc1 wide screen and disc2 standered version. and NEVER put tv shows season sets on dual layer discs. I think I will Keep sending e-mails to the studios telling them no more dual layer discs!! then again they don't care, no matter how many e-mail messages you send them. I just want to put my opinion in this group. Thanx! Gene!
