Avengers Review Update: viewing more episodes in the new Blu-ray edition of The Avengers Season 5 has revealed more examples of improved picture quality (compared to the A&E DVD)! That is a welcome discovery, although I'm still concerned with the speed-up I mentioned in the first-glance review here. Watched in isolation, some viewers of the Blu-ray might not notice the speed, but the pitch is slightly higher than what we are used to in the States. High enough to my sensitive ears to change the vibe of the performances. The Blu-ray pitch *might* be slightly lower than the Optimum? I've added clips from the Blu-ray to my comparison video below with A&E NTSC DVDs and the Optimum PAL DVDs. Check it out and see what you think.

  1. I definitely hear the pitch change to which you refer. Although the blu ray sounds a bit better than the optimum, neither sound as good as the original A&E dvds. I think I'll stick with least for now.
