I'm talking about shows that look better on tv than on DVD. Just bought Xena season I and have no plan at to buy anymore Xena season set. I've been watching it on Oxygen on my Direct TV and I thought it was really bad. So bad that I waited until the release of the DVDs. Turns out the DVDs don't even look as good as on Oxygen. Sure it was blurred on Oxygen but that's better than noticeable pixals and all sort of artifacts. My other season set is Sex in the City season 1. That's also another one where the broadcast is better than the DVDs. I know there are plenty of exceptions and I just happen to pick the bad ones, but I don't think I'm going to be waiting anymore. I'm currently making my own Sienfeld and Married With Children DVDs on my DVD recorder. Initially, I was going to wait.
