Player may not be playing back the episodes in "video" mode. It's probably trying to play back in progressive mode. (Removing 3/2) When the early seasons were authored, it wasn't possible. The shows were edited on video and did not have a consistent 3/2 pull down to work from.

I actually saw attempts to fix this Fox years ago, but it's just not possible.

I think he's talking about watching it interlaced, as opposed to forcing it progressive.

In ancient days, men looked at stars and saw their heroes in the constellations.
In modern times, we do much the same, but our heroes are epic men of flesh and blood.

How do I do that? I've never even heard of anything like that before. Is that a setting on my TV? On the PS3?

IIRC it's called BD/DVD Cinema Conversion under your Video Settings. Instead of automatic I believe you need to set it to Video.

Target has the DVD's on sale, yesterday and today, for $14.99. I just picked it up online, since the story didn't have any in stock. Had a $10 gift card, so I paid about $9 for it. It's the molded head DVD set I wanted anyway. Not a bad buy, since I don't recall anything from this season.
