Great show, horrible quality DVD

- Awesome show. Brings back a lot of great memories.
- Unlike the Disney release, these episodes are complete and not shortened to fit on the DVD.
- The WORST quality DVD I have ever seen. Each disc and each episode has this bizarre grainy, distorted, image. It isn't unwatchable if you're a hardcore fan--I'll probably even buy more seasons despite this defect. Also it doesn't matter what kind of a TV or DVD player you have. My tube with cheap DVD player was just as crappy a picture as my HDTV with a progressive scan player.
- While the story is intact and not edited down, the introduction and theme music has been cut from each episode. Boo!"
Picture quality now good

"The season one version I have has excellent picture quality, and comes with some production features. I think the newer releases have the technical problems solved. The show is excellent and deserves to be seen by all."

"Sullivan entertainment should be ashamed for delivering these series on DVD in this Quality. I bought this for my wife, she loves Anne of Greengables and she looked forward to see this serie on DVD. But a 100 times rented out VHS-tape is better quality than this. You can litterely see the pixels on TV !!Come on Sullivan this could be digitally restored..."
Like the other guy said; "Great story, terrible quality !, "

"The first DVD in this set was very clear, but the rest are of extremely poor quality. You can literally see each pixel on the screen, and after a while of squinting to see you start to get a headache. If you love Road to Avonlea, then these are the DVD's for you, just proceed with caution!"
