The Best and the Worst,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Bionic Woman: Season 2 (DVD)
OK, so finally after 30 something years of waiting for the US release of this collection (remember there was never even a VHS release), Universal finally delivers the American version! And of course BW Season 2 is AMAZING. But how is it possible Universal technicians couldn't have done a quality control check to make sure the audio was corrected on Deadly Ringer-pt 1? It's blasphemous. But can I rate this collection less than 5 stars? Of course not, because I am rating the actual shows and extras. If I was rating the quality of the transfer I would give a 2 star overall even if only Deadly Ringer suffered. Universal issued a statement saying the master is like that OR it is due to the passage of time. That's because they don't know--no one probably went back to confirm either excuse!!!!!!!! It's absolutely ridiculous. In 2011 they can't have a technician fix this probably very simple issue? They are allowing everyone to mail back the product for a refund...but then we are left with no Season 2, because at this point it doesn't sound like they are going to do ANYTHING to correct the problem. I give Universal zero stars, but Lindsay Wagner as Bionic Woman will always get 5 stars.
UPDATE: July 30, 2011 Just got the updated Disc 4 from Universal so all is right with the world! I would like to know if Universal is only selling boxed sets with the corrected version (and Amazon for that matter!)
