You may as well have recorded this from tv!

First off the actual show is great, but this is a review on THIS dvd collection.
The quality is awful & as the title says, you may actually have got better results if you DID record this yourself.
This was originally shown on ITV in the UK, so therefore you had an ad break half way through each episode. Now at the time programs used intermission cards to tell you that the adverts were coming up & again when the show was returning. Ridiculously this dvd actually includes the intermission cards..... both of them!
So each episode you actually get a 15 second intermission!?!
The sound quality is terrible. For example my standard volume level on my television is 10. To hear this dvd I have to increase it to 30!!!
The lack of subtitles means that my hard of hearing father cant watch this dvd either.
To prove how poor this dvd package is I borrowed a VHS version of this program from a friend of mine & hooked up my old recorder. It was better in every way quality wise. That cant be right!!!!
So to recap, great show, terrible dvd.
