And of course...Universal Studios keeps piling on the endless excuses to wax over the "dog-shit condition" of their DVD releases....
quote - "The Bionic Woman - Universal Statement Regarding Season 2 Audio Problem
Studio provides statement
We've had a number of readers report poor audio with "Deadly Ringer, Part 1" on the recently-released season 2 set, and they provided us with the following statement after looking into the issue:
Every episode in the Bionic Woman Season 2 DVD release has been digitally re-mastered for optimal viewing. However, the remastering cannot correct flaws that either were part of the original presentation or that happened over the passage of time. Certain moments within select episodes from Season 2 may include noticeable moments of imperfect picture or audio. This is reflective of the source material which unfortunately, is the best source material that is available to the studio and cannot be corrected. The episodes are still included in the set to provide as complete a collection as possible.
Consumers not satisfied with their purchase can contact Universal Studios Home Entertainment Consumer Relations by email at USHE.ConsumerRelations@bydeluxe.com or by phone at 888-882-5779, for information on returning the DVD set in exchange for a $30 NBC Universal Store voucher, valid for the purchase of any merchandise at http://www.nbcuniversalstore.com.
Universal will also be noting the problem on future batches of sets that go to retail.http://tvshowsondvd.com/news/Bionic-Woman-season-2-statement/15415 "
Of course, it is the moral responsibility of every movie studio to continuously take care of the source material of all of the television series they own, since all of these television series are the television heritage of the viewing public and belong to the general public. In this instance, it is obvious that Universal Studios has not been taking care of the source material of "The Bionic Woman" just as they have not been taking care of the source material of "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.
So of course, when the times arrived for Universal Studios to put both "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series and "The Bionic Woman" on to DVD, the neglected source material of both which was their own damn fault due to years of neglect, became the only available elements to put on to DVD.
