Creature Comforts America - The Complete Season One DVD Cover Art
SRP $29.95 1.78:1(16:9) DOLBY DIGITAL 5.1 SONY
 

Following the success of "WALLACE AND GROMIT," an American tv network chose to air an "American" version of the "CREATURE COMFORTS" series, by first capturing Americans musing about various things in chat-style interviews, and then animating them with claymation. Although there were 7 episodes initially filmed, the series was pulled off the air, after only three episodes, due to low ratings, in spite of favorable reviews.

All 7 episodes are included herein.  Some of the segments within individual episodes are quite entertaining, while others are simply dull. At least with the dvd, it's easy to scan to the better segments.

SONY has provided the correct 1.78:1 aspect ratio wit 16:9 enhancement.  It's a great looking transfer. Colors are lush and the detail is excellent in virtually every scene. The only disappointment relates to edge enhancement, which makes itself apparent more than we'd like.

SONY has provided a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. Being a dialogue-driven comedic show, surrounds are rarely used. Separation effects are utilized in entertaining ways, for the front soundstage. Dialogue is always intelligible and free from distortion.

About 20 minutes of alternate/deleted scenes are included as extras.
