They are going to compress the shit out of the episodes.
Probably, but weren't the shot on video in the first place?
And I don't think there'll be much compression. 10 half-hour episodes, less commercials, equals < 5 hours of material per disc. The L&O discs all have four or five (1 hour each, less ads) eps per disc, working out to about the same amount of time, and they look fine.
