I'm watching them in HD on HULU. I am curious about the special features but not enough to buy it. I am curious to see how they side step discussing Michael Jace in any capacity.

I just checked my Amazon cart & sometime between last night & now. The Shield dropped to $108.99 & jumped back up to $118.99.

Really? What and why? Stuff that's on the DVDs?
I was this close to buying this, but if it's missing anything significant, I'm out!

There’s a hefty discussion about it on the Blu-ray.com forum. It seems Sony gave Mill Creek the international versions which were different from what aired on FX. Mum and the series finale being examples. There’s even links to reddit where Shawn Ryan has replied to say he is looking into it.

Hi all. Shawn Ryan here. Was alerted to this thread. My understanding is/was that everything on this Blu-Ray release was going to be as it originally aired on FX. I will definitely be looking into this, though with the holidays it's very possible that I might not be able to get some answers until next week. I can assure you that nothing was intentionally done to change/censor any scenes. Since the early 2000s there has always been some confusion as the FX versions and Sony versions (for international release) were occasionally different for time purposes (and perhaps content purposes, though I was never told of this). I have been battling these differences for awhile. For instance streaming had the longer two part Series Finale that we had to create since International wouldn't accept the very long running time of the finale that ran on FX. I insisted that this new Blu-Ray go back to original FX Version. Will be back here with answers when I have them.

Oh man, what a clusterfuck!

At least Ryan's looking into it, but even if they fix it - it would take a while to get the different elements sorted out, transferred, etc Like, more than a year.

Re: The Shield -- The Complete Series -- 11/6/18

Had a discussion with a friend who just purchased this set & claims the audio from the first few seasons (so far) is "fake" 5.1 & is basically mono.
He ripped the audio from one of the episodes in season 2, ran it through Audacity & sent me a screenshot. This definitely does not look right to me. Looks like all of the audio is in the center channel.

Re: The Shield -- The Complete Series -- 11/6/18

I've seen some people talking about audio issues like that on the Blu-ray.com thread too. Add to that the issues with some content being cut on "Mum" and I'm glad I held off on this set.

Mill Creek was apparently given the International version of the episode by Sony and it snips seconds of footage from the oral rape scene.

Shawn Ryan was apparently unaware that this happened.

Well as long as it's still in the "previously on" for like the rest of the season, then I think it's ok. lol

I'm going to borrow the set from my friend & check the audio from more episodes. This is a serious fk up & I can't understand how this mistake could've been made.

My DVDs sound much better than this release. At this point I'm content to just keep them.

Re: The Shield -- The Complete Series -- 11/6/18

Yeah, got the DVD series. Was just looking to purchase it soon. Looks like more holding out until things get settled. If Mill Creek was in charge of the audio, well, not surprised. I would find it odd however, if only one guy said the track was mono. I thought The Shield tracks were 2.0.

P.S. It seems somebody ripped the audio from another episode and it does look like a stereo track. In any case, I'm not going to buy something just to confirm it's ok. Additionally, there are comments about the episodes still being compressed (no reason for this other than Mill Creek's infamous touch on it that love to DNR movies).

Another thing to ask is why the fuck was Mill Creek given the job, if this set is around $100. Ok, for $40 I would expect it, but this isn't cheap. Why couldn't another company have done it that is competent and doesn't have a history of flushing content through the shittiest post-processing workflow I've experienced.
