Top critical review
Excellent show; lousy presentation.

Excellent show; lousy presentation. The DVD's are presented in a letterboxed 4:3 aspect ratio. One winds up viewing with broad black bars on either side of the screen, and narrow black bars top and bottom. This is of course on a 16 x 9 television. On a 4 x 3 TV you only have the top and bottom black bars (letterbox).
The other complaint is that the 13 episodes of the so called season 1 are actually the 12 episodes which aired in early 2007 (March, April, May), plus the first of the 10 episodes which aired in late 2007 (October, November, December). Season 2 contains the remaining 9 episodes from late 2007.
The Blu-Ray set contains all 22 episodes (no season 1, season 2 hokum). More importantly the discs are properly formatted so the picture uses the entire 16 x 9 screen (no black bars).
