Finally got this in the mail the other week, and thought that I'd post some thoughts on it as someone requested in my other thread. I got this off Ebay from the seller tojenny222 for $11.99 US (much less than the $30 Amazon charges...) on the 2nd of January. I was a little worried when I didn't hear from the guy to confirm my payment, but last Friday a package (a little beaten up, but still OK) from Hong Kong arrived. The disc itself looks almost like a CDR, since the screening was obviously very low cost. I was a little worried about the "3" on the back, but it is indeed a R0 disc, since it loaded up on my player without a problem. All good so far... Now we get to the bad news. Comparing this to the Artisan box set is like night and day. Don't get me wrong-it's definitely watchable, and better than VHS or TV-but not much. I actually didn't notice the audio sync problems that I've read about, but what I did notice was that the color was off in places-some scenes (such as the opening credits) looked a little too red for example. Finally, some of the dark scenes are swimming with pixels-which is really noticable near the end of the episode. So the verdict-hey, it's the only way you're getting the pilot for now, and that's a good thing. I've never seen the series before, and after this and the first disc of the box set I'm hooked. Of course, there'll probably be a legit R1 version of this now that I've bought this one, but it's all we've got right now.
