Mine are full screen only.  Unless they've updated it that's what you get. 

I don't think the picture quality is so bad.  It's not on par with LOK, but it is what it is.  It looks like the show did when it aired.

Which DVD's are we talking about? Book Water is the one with the really noticeable bad quality, and looks worse than any airing I've ever seen of the same episodes on Nicktoons.

Book Water's first disc is terrible, it improves itself later.

The funny thing about Book 1's disc is that I've never noticed how bad it sucked until about a year and a half ago. My vision isn't the greatest so I never noticed any bad quality because I couldn't see the ghosting problem while watching the disc. Then I got contacts and noticed it the next time I watched. I thought it was just my disc that was broken until I went on the internet and discovered the disk one of Book 1 just simply sucked. Cheesy

But it's not un-watchable, unless you're super picky  Grin

Which I am! I guess I'll stick to Amazon or iTunes. To be honest I would like to have the DVD collection an all, but I put quality first. It would be awesome if Nick were to release them in BD.

Yeah, I've stuck with watching it on Amazon Instant video ever since I noticed the dvd issue,

I have every season on disc but watching on Amazon is just easier.

Are we talking about the box set DVDs or the individual DVDs? As the series aired (and released) I bought all the DVDs individually of all the seasons. So I have like episodes 1-4, 5-8, 9-12 etc on separate discs. Are these the DVDs we're talking about, or are we talking about the box set on DVD? If there's a difference.

I got the box sets on DVD last black friday for 10 bucks each, just to condense my shelf a bit, but I still have the old ones. I never noticed an issue with quality? I've always watched them on an HDTV but never noticed the quality being bad on any of them? I haven't watched the box sets of the series on DVD yet though...so maybe it doesnt apply to the original DVDs just the box sets? Idk you guys are making me curious now.

Thew box set dvds and the individual dvds are the same I believe. The box set just puts the individual discs together. There is no quality difference.

I am talking about the individual sets though for Book 1 as I don't have the Book 1 box set.

The first disc of water is bad, but it improves throughout the boxset. Adjusting settings on my TV helped a little, it was watchable (only at first, it is a little distracting.)
