The Avengers (1998 Warner Bros. Movie)
Extras: Theatrical trailer
Brief: No surprises here - the hacked about theatrical cut thrown on a disc without care or attention. Surely after 16 years, Warners could release the director's cut... At least it looks and sounds superb.

Episodes Series 6:

The Forget-Me-Knot
Extras: None.
Brief: The first Blu-ray release of the series in the USA. The 25 episodes are included on three single-sided dual layer Blu-ray discs, the first two of which contain 8 episodes, with the third really pushing the capacity limit at 9. The release does not include the original mono tracks (only 5.1 surround versions are included) and the sound is reputedly at 4% too high a pitch (the equivalent of "PAL speed up") despite the episodes being authored at 24 frames per second progressive. English H.O.H. subtitles are included.
