Quality : This is not my recording it was a VHS rip authored to DVD when I got it. The first 10 minutes (approx) are missing from this episode. There are embedded interlace artifacts (combing on horizontal movement), but when watching I didn't find it particularly bothersome, otherwise the video quality is OK throughout (for a rip from a home VHS recording). Audio, though a bit 'tinny' is also OK throughout.
