Okay, so my wife was recording the episodes from CBS and we'd watch them later... until one day the time changed or something and we missed an episode. We couldn't stand skipping one, so we rented the dvd that had that episode on it.
Man, what a difference. The show is FAR BETTER in its original format. The material is all intact and things just started making more sense and flowing right. I think the missing scenes from CBS really made the show pretty choppy and I wasn't "getting" some of the police characters.
I highly recommend DVD only on this series.
