I have only viewed a few episodes so far, but the sound and picture quality are excellent. The 2-hour episodes are split into their two-part syndicated versions, but that's OK. The one odd thing here is the packaging. When I opened the box I found the discs stacked on two plastic spindles-season 1&2 on one, 3-5 on the other. I don't know why the discs were packaged in this way, but I doubt it was with the convenience of the user in mind. If you are looking for a particular episode, you have to dig for it. Even if you are watching the episodes in order, this is so. Whose idea was this? This set is well worth buying for any Angels fan, especially at Amazon's price. I would simply put the discs into another case/holder so you can pull a particular disc without having to dig for it. By the way, with reference to the first reviewer's grievance, you do not have to rebuy seasons 1-4 to get season 5. I understand that season 5 will be released separately in, I believe, December.
