How many episodes are on the disc and how long are they? If it has 4 episodes of a 1 hour show (45 minutes without commercials), the individual episodes are typically 1.5-1.7 GB each, X4=6-6.8 GB for all 4. Look at the original using explorer and see how many 1 GB VOBs there are. Also, the menus on some TV discs are huge, try turning them off in Customize. I suspect your original is a DVD9, but you can make it fit on a DVD5 with compression.
