$3.99 what?

I was going to buy this show but after i saw the price the iTunes must be crazy i'm not willing to pay $3.99 per episode, Have iTunes lost their mind.

$3.99 per episode??

I enjoy these episodes, but $3.99 for each one??

Window box bug.

I liked both "Comets" and "The Plague" downloads, but found it annoying that the reformatting to window box "wide screen" was done so slopily as to cut off the bottom line of whatever wording was put on the screen during the production of these programs. All of the experts talking to the camera had their positions of knowlege cut off from below their names, and on the medieval European re-enactments the bottom line of the English subtitles were cut off.
