I think the reason (why it's no good for episodics) is that it only produces the 'movie'. With episodics, of course, that's difficult to quantify!
I notice they've carried over their deeply irritating habit of popping up a dialog to ask whether the disc you're trying to copy is rented. "I'm sorry, father, I cannot tell a lie. The answer is yes"
In your dreams.
They also prefix the DVD with that FBI warning that has me spitting enamel chips. (321, if you're reading this, it may come as a complete surprise to you, but over here in Europe the FBI doesn't, er, have any jurisdiction).
I know they are getting ready for a swift knee in the groin in court, but really, some of these tactics are just plain ingenuous.
