    Good news. If you get any more information from Infinity confirming they are upgrading the image for the first half of season 1 and dropping the letterbox cropping for the second half, let us know. Many fans have followed this situation and are skeptical about “double dipping” with this purchase. But this bodes well for future season sets. Sometimes you just have to get it wrong before you get it right.
