Before we continue, here is more on the show from the review of the first season:





Again, the set has not extras and the Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono is the same, but sadly, the image quality is poorer, with detail issues throughout, motion blur that makes these look like old digital copies and not as engaging as the first set.  Why the quality drop?  Who knows, but it is not good, especially with 2 HD formats around.  Fans will be happy the shows are available, but these should look much better than they do, like the first set.  Oh, and they changed the theme song a bit.
