Question about Buffy Sets?

I bought Season 1 and 2 a long time ago of Buffy... the quality is OK but not great. Does The quality get a little better in around the 3rd, 4th, or 5th season and by how much?

They improve substantially. Season Five has widescreen if I understood what was being stated in the commentaries.

The R1 sets are ALL in 1.33 as originally aired.

The R2 and R4 sets are 1.78:1 beginning with Season 4.

The video quality improves after season 2 because they went from filming the series in 16mm to 35mm.

But those aren't what Joss Wheadon intended.

While picture qualities have improved from S1 to S2, S2 to S5 could use some improvements. Picture is grainy and soft with not much details in the background. The later series including S5 seems too dark to me (but may have been what the director wanted). The Angel series have much improved picture quality similar to motion picture but that's a different topic.
