#76......"LEWIS COLLINS"



Today is one of those days . I tried to watch an episode from the first disc of the fourth box set this morning and it wouldn't load so i took it out and cleaned the disc and put it back in to watch but no it wouldn't load again so i took it out to give it another clean and what do i find, the disc is cracked . How the hell that has happened is beyond me but I'm mortified. My only answer is to now order a new box set. I can't have a box set where one disc isn't working .

Thankyou , i can't recall how it happened but my only solution is to buy the box set again and looking on Amazon i can't believe a used version is costing more than a brand new one.

Which ep were you after? It's prob online somewhere, that might do.

And I know - weird how Amazon pricing works, but I'm loath to knock it as I got my dream Man from U.N.C.L.E. box set for half price!

Re: Bummer
Bummer ...it sure is . I was going to watch any episode off the first disc and it's probably wise that i did try that particular one because i now know i have to order the box set again . I can't believe how much the price has dropped since i first purchased it ...it's half the price it was .

Well, at least that's something...

Hope you get your new disc very soon :0)

How annoying for you! I'd be very pissed off, too, especially considering it must be fairly new and not used that much.

Great picture of Lewis, by the way, thanks a lot.

Hmmm I'm slightly peeved of truth be known and i don't understand how it could have happened but there is nothing for it but to order another one .

Glad you like the Lew image and thankyou .

Oh, that's really annoying. I had the same problem with some discs I had borrowed. They had a crack and I couldn't watch the films.

I like the picture of Lewis. :-)

yes it is most annoying and i don't know how that has happened because i try to handle the discs as carefully as i can but i have ordered a new box set , i can't not be able to watch one of the discs .

I'm so pleased that you like the image of Lewis and thankyou for looking.

That's really frustrating about the disk and it's so annoying that you have to buy it again. Then again, it's out there so we can buy it, so that's something. And thanks for the lovely pic, yet another one that's new to me.

It is very annoying but i have no other option but to order a new one though how that happened is a mystery because i try to be very careful when handling the discs .

So glad that you like this image of Lewis and i am only too happy to share some new pics with you .

Oh no! How frustrating! I hope you're able to get a cheapish replacement set, at least.

I really have to make the discs flex, to get them out of the case, sometimes, and I've wondered if it can damage them, that way.

Hope your new set fares better.

It is very frustrating and i don't know how thus could have happened because i try to handle the discs with so much care but like you said the discs are quite hard to get out of their casings and maybe the disc has cracked that way without me knowing .

I have ordered a new copy and i will try to be more careful with this one . Thankyou.
