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.

I'm surprised by the reviews. A lot of the episodes appear to have bad compression artifacts or noisy/blocky grain instead of nice clear grain. Wish we could get the actual 4K transfers.

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.

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.

I ripped the audio. The Shield is 2.0. There was obviously an error when transcoding to 5.1 on this set.

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

This set is now $95.05 at Amazon.

I'd like to hold off and hopefully get another 20-25 bucks off before I pull the trigger. I can't imagine that sales for this have been so great to keep it in the $90-100 range. They have to want to move some stock.

I don't have a souped up stereo system like some of you, so the audio channel thing that was mentioned is not a big deal to me.

Then save yourself $100 and just watch them all on HULU.

It's a new 4K HD transfer and I want a physical copy of it.

Also I want the new cast reunion documentary and the other extras/commentaries. There's a ton of bonus features.

I only have the old Sony DVD set that cost like $25 and I'd like to upgrade that. I've already seen the series as it aired on FX and I'd like to eventually re-visit it with this new transfer.

Don't forget though, one or two of the episodes in this new blu-ray set are the edited European versions.
Not a huge deal, but not cool for "purists". Shawn Ryan was supposedly looking into the issue, but he's gone silent on it since.

I have been waiting on this to see if it pops up at around $50 on Amazon or Best Buy. No rush since I have it on DVD.
For those who have never watched, hands down the best cop drama to ever grace the small screen.
