It depends on what masters these companies get. Lionsgate ALWAYS had access to crappy masters (look at any TMNT set but the first), at least ONE episode looks like it was taped off a bad tape... like a bootleg. And official bootleg. I remember reading on series had to have the syndication cuts due to some idiotic rights hiccup, but I guess part of the others are access to certain masters that's the problem. BUT Mill Creak's re-release of sitcoms (Roseanne, That 70's Show, and Third Rock) are uncut. They even boast that on the packaging... and for less money. It sounds like a commercial, but I'm pretty shocked. Though 3rd Rock's the only one I'd actually get.
