Brilliant Picture But. . .,
This review is from: Top Gear - Polar Special (Director's Cut) [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Okay, first off, i didn't buy this from Amazon, i was given it.
The picture quality on this is nothing short of sensational. Im stunned at just how amazing it looks compared to what the BBC HD channels broadcast in the UK.
I watched this when it first was broadcast and loved it, the added footage and even better PQ made it an even better experience.
However... The audio being only 2.0 Stereo is something i found to be rather poor.
And even worse is that when i buy a DVD, i do not expect it to be censored. the swearing was bleeped. Okay, as this was broadcast at 8pm in the UK, i can understand the censoring because of the broadcasting rules, but a DVD, is not something that has to conform to those rules so thats something im rather miffed at from BBC Worldwide.
Lack of 5.1 & censoring are the bad points. Great points are the fact this is an epic adventure and the picture is breath-taking.
