I wanted to share a technical problem that I just encountered on Warner's recent DVD release of Smallville: The Complete First Season. This past Saturday I was watching the episode "Kinetic" (on Disc 4), and at the 0:13:38 mark there is an obvious framing problem on the disc. It is the exterior shot of the Fordman Department Store. There is an obvious black bar at the left side of the screen which lasts for the entire duration of the shot, until 0:13:42. I checked it several times in Title 1 (the consecutive play of all four episodes on the disc) and in Title 3 (the individual episode), and this same framing problem is present both times in the episode. It looks to be a framing problem with the shot, since there is a slight, though obvious, movement of the camera during the shot. This is not good, since the image should fill up the screen (minus the obvious widescreening). The last time I noticed this severe an edge framing problem was years ago with the first VHS release of Return of the Jedi, during the shot with Luke and Vader on the catwalk. It was very obvious then that the shot was framed incorrectly, as there was an obvious black bar at the right of the screen. Has anyone else who's gotten the set noticed this framing problem? I contacted Warner Home Entertainment to see if it would be corrected and a new Disc 4 pressed for the set. I'm thinking that there should be a re-pressing of the disc, since the picture is obviously framed incorrectly.
