I recently bought the 15 disc complete series, the one with the silver box holding all the discs inside:
I got it off Ebay (oh no, you know where this is going
). The packaging was perfect and sealed, complete with the sticker they put on the plastic wrap, I never suspected until I put the discs in to watch the first episode. Menus and everything were working fine, but the video was HORRIBLY compressed. I know an 80's cartoon on an interlaced DVD wasn't going to be the best picture, but this was too much. I put the disc in my computer and found out it was only 4.35 GB, ie, a single layer DVD. I'm looking for someone to confirm that the official release uses Dual Layer Discs for all 15 discs (except the season 1 special features disc, which I think was originally a DVD5).
Please help me confirm this (I have already contacted Shout! directly, and I'm waiting for their reply). Thanks!
