It's the cheap crap DVDs Universal insists on putting their series on.

It *could* be the DVD player....have you tried it on another?

But most likely it is just the poor quality DVD itself. Mine freezes up halfway in one episode, I end up having to skip a quarter of it.

I have the same problem with my S1 DVD. My first set did it and I exchanged it for a second and had the same problem. Both skipped on Disc 1 at the exact same spot... between "Knight of the Phoenix" and "Deadly Maneuvers".

Did you get yours from Best Buy as well?

You put it in upside down and it aint gonna play nothing!

I'd love to know why all of Best Buy's sets seem to be jacked up. :x

Only disc 4 on the region 1 set of season 1 is single sided all other discs are double sided. the region 2 set of season 1 is single sided (8 dvd set).

Yeah J-Knight, The region 2 (UK, South Africa etc) versions are all single sided discs. knightdriver has the first Region 1 set that I know of that is single sided. I bought the region 1 sets from the States simply for the teasers. When the region 2 boxset of the entire series is released then I will buy that aswell, so I'll have region 1 & 2 of the entire series.

your right I bought the region 1 sets because I couldn't wait for the ones here to come out but I bought season 2 here and it was all single and not as nice looking as the r1 sets especially how thin they are the r1's

I'd absolutely KILL for the single-sided DVD's.

These double-siders are way too easy to scratch up. :(

I wonder why they always use double sided discs for R1 and single sided for R2. I'm not complaining though.
