* HighDefinition: Inexplicably, the Netflix and Hulu streams are remastered in high definition, complete with [[PanAndScan pan and tilt]]. As a result there's a number of awkwardly cropped shots (such as people with their head just in the bottom of the frame) as the show was filmed well before high definition, let alone widescreen, was common. On the upside, the opening title sequence has never looked so good.
