DS9 is by far my favorite show-- the acting is great, the script superb-- and the complete series is well worth the money spent, as you will be watching and re-watching for years to come. However, due to Paramount's apathy, some of the purchased DVDs may be \"clouded.\" The \"clouding\" of DVDs occur when the DVDs aren't allowed to cool long enough at production. If you do purchase this great television show set, which I do recommend, be sure to check that your DVDs function properly within the allotted time-frame for returns. Usually, a \"clouded\" DVD will work and only be a visual issue, but, sometimes, a clouded DVD will not function to expectations. I encountered this problem, but Walmart worked it out for me and I got a replacement.
