Your Opinions and Comments

Series 1 (3 Dvds Set) was very good quality but I am having problems with Series 2.

I bought both the 3-Dvd Box Set (Orange colour) and separate Dvds but found in at least two of the films that the picture would break up and/or go black for a second.

"Ennui" is particularly prone to this. I am sure that the film is all there but there must be something upsetting both my good quality Sony Dvd Players. But has anyone else had this problem (does not happen with Series 1)?

Thank you. 2/11/13
