Seems like a good buy, but DON'T COUNT ON ALL THE DISCS WORKING!
on September 1, 2018
First, the positives:
I liked the packaging and how slim the discs were. It appeared to be a complete set, although I've not yet looked into the later seasons. The discs appeared mostly new, with some exceptions.
Now, the negatives:
Multiple discs out of each season have flaws; they skip, they don't play, or they play in the computer vs a DVD player, among other issues. One episode in season three didn't play and instead skipped to 40 minutes in, at which point the text "it looks as though you are the winner by" appeared on the screen and didn't vanish for several minutes.
To be fair most of the episodes so far have worked in one device or the other, it's really only the one episode that completely was faulty in both laptop and DVD player (so far). Many of the discs came with scratches across their circumference, indicating an issue with the discs themselves as opposed to an issue once in the player.
While it is true that theoretically you could complain and get a better set, the matter of fact is that with all of the seasons, unless you do nothing but watch them nonstop, you won't know until it's past the month date which discs have issues and which are acceptable.
Ultimately I wish there was a longer time to test the discs given the amount of them, because at this point it seems like something worth about $75 versus $100.
