Season 3 DVD

So I recently purchased the third season of TUF and the picture quality is crap. It looks like the video was extremely compressed and almost all sharp edges show jaggies. Has anyone else experienced this? I didn't have this problem with Season 1 or 2. I feel like Best Buy sold me a bootleg...

Edit: I just popped in the second disc and it looks fine. I'm not sure if Navarre or UFC is to blame, but I've been having too many problems with their DVDs. The first season that I picked up had a defective disc (disc 2) and there wasn't a good copy to be found in Orlando. I contacted Navarre and they forwarded my information to the UFC and I'm still waiting to be contacted about that. Is this just my luck, or are there others out there that are going through this **** just to add to their DVD collection???

I only have 1 and 5, rented season 2 on netflix, but haven't seen 3 or 4 on dvd, just occational episodes on TV.

I also noticed season 3 on sale for $20 while all of the other seasons sell for $25. Maybe they're selling it cheaper because of crappy post production??? Someone help me out here. I know some of you guys own this set...

Ive had a few problems with the TUF dvds. First season 1 my disc 2 like last 2 episodes are unwatchable due to problems like you described. I also had to exchange 2 others, season 4 cause the case was all cracked to **** when I bought. Mostly from it being an awful design, and another season for a problem similar to season 1 but more widespread.

It sucks, but I cant wait till 6? comes out. Oct. something. I dont remember the exact date. Ill be picking it up anyway though. I like knowing about the fighters out of the cage and being able to support them based on more than just the way they fight.

Edit: I do own them all, but I dont remember anything specific as far as bad quality for season 3 or a reason why they would lower it over the others.

I own seasons 1-4 and they are all the same quality. Season 1 might be a lil different because its the original one (3 dvd cases w 2 dvds in each), you know what i mean, since then i think the ufc has changed companies because now the Season 1's are being put into those single 5 disc small cases.

At this point, I'm convinced it's crappy post-production. I've noticed the same degraded quality in some of the bonus features of other seasons. Oh well...what can you do?

I also e-mailed Navarre to let them know that UFC never contacted me about my defective disc 2 from season 1. Their PR department said they would send me a copy immediately. It's nice to get some decent customer service once in a while.
