    I finally bought S1 at Best Buy yesterday. I pop in the first disc and the first episode freezes around the seven minute mark. I go back to Best Buy and exchange it easily. I watched Side A last night and the first episode of Side B with no problems.

    So what happens this morning? The beginning of episode 5 (High Octane) keeps freezing. Arrgh.

    Being fairly new to DVD, any advice on what I should do? Should I go to a different Best Buy assuming the whole batch of DoH was bad? My player is fairly new (bought it last Nov.) and this is the first problem I've had with a disc.

    Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

    I don't know what you should do, but my first copy wouldn't even display the menu on start-up and wouldn't play episode 1. It froze up entirely unless you physically hit the menu button, and then would skip to episode 2 if you tried to access episode 1. My second copy (both from Fry's) worked fine.

    Best Buy takes the DVDs returned due to defects and puts it back on the shelf. While it is possible they have a damaged batch, they also recycle the damaged ones returned. Try again and if it happends again, demand your money back.
