    Am I alone or is it just my copy of the SATC Series 1-5 boxset, which has dreadful video quality... ? I have tried discs from the first two series so far and the image is very grainy and of poor quality, worse than normal tv braodcasts.

    Any comments would be appreciated???

    Cheers Gary I have finally persuaded her, that it is not the screen, but I can't believe that people would accept such dreadful picture quality... it is worse than off air broadcast? I was going to take them back and replace them, but hav'nt a clue what to do now!

    i've watched the first season and although i thought it was bad, it wasn't that bad.

    are they all the same - i've bought the box set with all 6 seasons in - the pink and black one.

    If you want to give me a season/episode number i'll have a look tonight and post my thoughts tomorrow.

    Well I have a similar boxset although its the 1-5 not the 1-6 I have only looked at the first few episodes from each, but they were all dreadful.... to make sure it was'nt I tried it on an old 29" CRT tv and it was still dreadful, although to be honest not just as noticable..... as obviously the 42" screen exagerates anything of dubious quality.

    Thanks for your offer Gary, but from what you have said this is an dissue with SATC full stop..... it would be interesting to see if anybody else agrees with us???

    How many episodes per disc ?

    I remember the show being a bit grainy when broadcast on television but later seasons got better with the pic quality.

    Well on for the first series 6 episodes per disk. I will have to try a much later series and see if there is any improvement........ Didi'nt want to take the wrappers off as I was intendng to take them back! Although it seems like there is going to be no point swapping them now.

    I borrowed the first 4 seasons and the picture quality was terrible.
    It was worse than Blade runner and thats saying something.

    Seaons 2 & 3 were the worst picture qulaity wise.....nope I dont watch it, but my missus does and I noticed it one night when she was watching it. I checked all the box sets she had to see if they were all like that.
    Might as well of bought VHS copies!

    Bauer, i find that ladies undergarments come off so much faster if you talk to them about things they understand - discussing the latest black and decker hi speed drill might impress the guys in the pub - but it doesn't make knicker elastic ping :devil:

    added to which its very funny.
