For $116 here's to hoping the audio is pitch corrected and Laurie Johnson's theme is in the correct key- C. NOT C#/Db. at least that way I'll know the dialogue is in the right pitch as well.

Crikey that is a steep price! Way more than the DVD set, wonder what chances there are of a reduction. Not much cheaper than The Sopranos and that was 80+ episodes with shedloads of extras

As discussed in other topics, the perceived pitch problems are only an issue for those used to NTSC broadcasts. This is a UK release so I'd expect it to be the 25fps we remember here, like every other film transmitted on PAL.

Not that I think there will be many people to care at that price! Amazon - UK

Personally, I hope they issue the episodes at 24 frames progressive, which will match how they were *shot*, which is surely what we should be aiming for. They were only ever speeded up in the UK/Europe for purely technical reasons, and those reasons no longer exist.

Also, since we know the sound is an issue, if they do them at 25 frames/second then we will most likely have sound pitched 8% too high as evidenced by the 24p sound on the US discs being pitched 4% higher than it should be.

This problem appears to be burned into the HD masters.

Most uninformed post ever. Blu-ray is 24fps, Blu-ray isn't PAL.

The Avengers should play at 24fps, as the original audio should too.

The pitch is wrong and the product needs a recall.

I never said Blu-Ray was PAL and Blu-Ray can be 24 or 25 or a number of other frame rates.

I was merely pointing out that The Avengers was shown at 25fps on UK TV therefore a 25fps Blu-Ray is unlikely to get the pitch complaints it does in the U.S.

And this Blu-Ray isn't even released until next February so it's a bit early to be demanding a recall!

Not that I'm worried as I won't be buying it.

I bought the series on VHS, paid TV licence to watch it on Channel 4, BBC2 and ITV4, satellite fees to watch on Bravo, bought again on Contender's DVDs and some French sets (Series 1-3 and TNA), then again on Optimum/Canal and both UK and German sets... Can't see myself buying it all again, either.

I think that makes you officially a fan! Laughing I bought a few VHS tapes, then taped all the other episodes from Bravo in the 90s. I've bought all the Studio canal box sets (thanks to this forum I waited for the corrected sets!).
I'm very happy with them, so I don't think I'll be buying them all again. Unless the next editions have an earth shattering improvement. Wink Rich.

Awfully expensive! Not a fan of the US version done too cheaply, but this is 5 times as much!

There's no 25 frames progressive standard as part of the Blu-ray spec, but Blu-ray is not exclusively 1080/24. It can be 1080/50 fields interlaced.

Not the best way to release film sources, but to say that "Blu-ray is 24fps" is simply nonsense.

If you're going to suggest that someone's post is the most uninformed ever, it's as well not to post something in your reply which is inaccurate. Wink

German cover:



...and quite striking it is, too!

I do hope the UK edition uses this artwork. So much more appealing than the UK DVD cover.

Thanks Alan, so in February we are waiting for the English and German edition. Remains to wait for news about the French edition.
