Thanks for the first season on DVD. We really like the Pretender. We would have Pretender parties at the beginning and end of every season. Since it was canceled (at least no more new episodes) we haven't had a party in a while. Now with the DVD we can plan some parties and have our own Pretender marathon. We look forward to upcoming seasons on DVD also. I know that the end of the Pretender was suppose to wrap everything up and answer a lot of questions, but I don't believe it did that. I really would have liked to see Jarod and Sydney get together and do that fishing trip Jarod wanted to do. Miss Parker also needed to end up happy some way. As for Broots he sort of just vanished off the scene and what ended up happening to Angelo? I know this could never happen now, but it would have been nice. Thanks again for the DVD.
