Shafted By Quality

Amazon, as we know, is the most available provider to our 'On-Demand' lifestyles.

I have accidentally purchased years ago a movie (The Martian) a second time in a different format and was unable to refund my purchase. Now i have two (2) of the same movie. Amazon doesn't make it easy.

I have Lord of The Rings purchased through Amazon Prime Video, and i see no option to spend a fraction of the price I paid to upgrade to the Extended Version. Wow, sucks to lose money on something so trivial. Why not pay a little extra for an upgraded movie? Idiots.

I saw, a blast from my past, 3rd Rock from the Sun. I started watching- despite Amazon Prime membership, and still got ads. I decided, to hell with it, $17 for 1 throwback nostalgia and sentiment, just to void ads. Excited as I was, I noticed the frame changed, like a pristine i-Phone 10 ratio, to a Polaroid from the 90's; not the SAME from what I was watching with ads. However, the $17 got me lower quality, lower resolution, lower pixels, but, oh thank God, no ads.

I write this for any idiot like I am, thinking money buys quality, and lack there of deserves a refund - good luck. Might as well use that money next time you need to sneeze, wipe yourself or pick up after your dog.

Amazon makes sure it is difficult to get a refund on a crap quality digital sale. Once they have your money, it's theirs, and Bezos is just laughing at how you give it up.

That got heated toward the end. Someone tell me how to refund a duplicate of The Martian, to upgrade (willing to spend the cost) to the Extended LotR, and to refund crap quality of Season1 of 3rd Rock from the Sun to go back to the better quality with ads. FML.

Skips.
Verified purchase
I thought uh-oh when I removed the first disc from the package and saw the excessive amount of scratches and a couple of gouges. I am surprised it plays at all and will have to replace this season. Although I have been able to watch most of the first disc in the set (I am currently watching the second with no problems thus far) there are skips and I don't know how much I've missed of the episodes affected. This is the only season I purchased from this seller (Media Discounts) and will not purchase from them again. Honestly, they should not have even sold this set without viewing it first due to the amount of damage present. Even second hand media should be viewable in its entirety. I only gave it a 2 instead of 1 because my player managed to skip the bad parts and keep playing.

John Lithgow deserved his Emmy Award for playing Professor Dick Solomon along with his castmates Kristen Johnson (Sally Solomon); French Stewart (Harry Solomon) and a young Joseph Gordon Levitt (Tommy Solomon). Dick and Tommy are father and son while Sally and Harry are Dick's siblings. They come to earth to study us humans. The rest of the cast includes Elmarie Wendel (Landlady Mrs. Dubchek); Simbi Kali (Dick and Mary's secretary, Nina Campbell) and two time Emmy winner Jane Curtin as Dr. Mary Albright.

The first season is spread out on the four DVDs. I don't know if they are edited or not. It has been a while since I have seen the series. Sadly, it doesn't run in syndication like it should regularly. Still twenty years later, the jokes are fresh and alive. Guest cast in the first season included Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls and Parenthood); John Mahoney (Frasier); and Phil Hartman (Newsradio and Saturday Night Live). The fourth DVD includes extras like interviews with the entire cast, highlights, TV spots and comes with a 16 page collectible booklet. I did notice that James Earl Jones' introduction to the series wasn't in any of the episodes like it was on NBC.

Best American Show Ever
Verified purchase
This is one of my favorite shows and it's I feel like it's completely underrated. It's about as close as American TV has ever gotten to sharp British humor. The show is smart, funny and all the characters are completely unlikeable, but you love them anyway.

It's a shame that all we get on dvd, hulu, netflix are the syndicated versions. This DVD is the first time we get to see Season 2 uncut. I still think some of these episodes are cut however, seeing how the final episode was originally aired as one hour, but it's split into two episodes on the dvd. So, I think there is a bit of false advertising going on here.

My only other complaint would be the episodes are very grainy and I don't know if that's just because that's how they are or it's bad dvd compression.

M may be edited but I enjoyed it.

I read all of the negative posts for the DVD Series regarding missing footage from what is offered as "complete". I guess I'm just not such an avid fan as they are. I love the series now but that's after "re-discovering" the series for the first time. I was living in Germany during the years that the series originally aired on TV so I never saw it back then. I just came across it while sampling random old TV series on Netflix and fell in love with it. I'm watching each episode for the first time I cannot tell that anything was edited out. So I guess I have to praise the "Complete Season" with that one caveat. If you've never seen the series before you will likely love this affordably priced set. If you are however an avid fan with lots of knowledge about the series, season and episodes you may be disappointed by the editing.

A great show that ended far too soon. Six Seasons is great, but deserved 10

Great show, Great to see an unedited version of the show. Packaging is simple & the set goes from a three disc set to two, but it seems to be fine as far as compression goes. Great ensemble show. Lithgow is amazing and the rest of the cast falls quickly into their parts. It hits the ground running and doesn't stop running. An awesome show. Smart & funny with great one liners/slapstick. Once you see the pilot episode you know who they are and what they are. & knowing that makes the show work the way it does. it pays loyal viewers back with great comedy. The more invested you are with the show and characters the more laughing you'll do, great for casual viewers as well

The slip ups were interesting
Verified purchase
I liked this show and was(am) thrilled to be able to add this to my collection.
One little problem that came up is that the player I was using to watch this has a "memory" feature so it will remember where you were on your disk in case you lose power or take the disk out to clean it and then put it back in. The reason this comes up is the disks apparently are all done differently than other disks. When I switched disk one for the next disk the player didn't want to play it because it read it as still being disk 1. I had to "restart the disk from the beginning". It was a minor point but one that might mean issues for people who have a weird oddity in their players. Overall the way these played and looked though were very good.

Third Rock from the Sun has always been one of my favorite sitcoms. The comedy is derived from four very interesting characters that are figuring out things about human life on earth for the first time. This was released by Mill Creek entertainment which did not reformat it in HD or change it up in anyway which is fine with me. I noticed some reviewers said the video quality is grainy, and that simply derives if your HDTV does well with standard definition or not. Some brands are better than others, I have an LG HDTV and they do very well with 480p definition DVD's and cable channels....Otherwise for the money this collection is well worth the few bucks I shelled out for it and I can enjoy it over and over as much as I want. LOVE IT!
