Netflix is streaming A-Team in HD quality, so I do believe a blu transfer would be quite lovely!

So ... Aspect Ratio for the BDs?

Universal HD aired the series in 16:9. I caught a few of those eps and the framing seemed surprisingly natural.

The teasers are not included in the Japanese set. If they are in the MC version, I'll be double dipping.

Will the Set basically include all of the Features from the original release by Universal? The Knight Rider 2000 TV movie for example? Also, I am watching the 4 Universal released shrink-wrap sets I have and the DVDs buffer and skip. The original release has Double sided discs and this happens in whatever Player I play them in. Can I correct this by using a DVD Cleaning/Repair system ? Or is to a Flaw in the discs themselves and therefore I should purchase the New set (which Im considering anyway)

There's no easy way to "fix" the double-sided flipper disc versions. The only way I have been able to watch the flipper versions without any skipping, freezing, pixelation, etc ... is to play them on a computer dvd drive.

But with that being said, at this point one is better off buying either the single-sided dvd discs re-releases of all four seasons, or the bluray version. (At the local nearby Walmarts, they frequently stock the single-sided dvd discs re-released versions of the first two seasons for $10 a pop or less).

I Double dipped and Pre ordered the Set on Blu Ray. Is there any information about What extras will be in this set? Any more than the original Universal Releases? I am also assuming the Set will be Remastered? As I rewatched the Seasons original release, A few of them were slightly Grainy ..Or was this an issue with the Discs themselves?
