Hi ya Gary,

I received a "Mrs. Doubtfire" DVD for Christmas. It wouldn't play once!

With magnifying glass examination, the surface is flawless.

I won't repeat my rant about the fact that Blockbuster et al should NEVER
have allowed this format on the market. We're not supposed to be able to
touch/lick/sneeze-on/scratch/abuse the physical medium!

What a bunch o' no-brainers that B' Buster and the rest are.

Only viable alternative is streaming as far as I can see... :-)
