Inbetweeners Complete Series US release question

Does anyone have this complete series set? I feel like the picture quality is awful. Its blurry alot. I bought this from Amazon, it looks official, but the picture quality makes me suspicious. Can anyone confirm this is how it is supposed to look?

i wouldn't be surprised if its the PAL to NTSC "jitter" that happens when UK shows get released over here (if you've ever watched any older shows on bbc america, you've prob realized this). i have the UK release and there is no problem with it being "blurry"

Hmmm...very good point. I dont have too many BBC shows on DVD, but anyone I do has always been coded Region 1. This looks to be All Regions, but I don think I've ever had this issue before. http://www.amazon.com/The-Inbetweene...+inbetweeeners

I dont know why I posted a link to the office before.

that one is region 1.

The Downton Abbey US release also kinda has the jittery look to it

I noticed a similar "weirdness" with my copy of "Queer as Folk: The Complete Series" of the UK series and it had the same kinda picture image, which after some research I found was from the PAL to NTSC conversation. I guess I've just gotten a little used to the UK series looking slightly off.

I've ordered a replacement direct from Amazon. The original one was from a Amazon Merchant (shipped with Prime). Well see how that works out.
