I owned the season one Blu-ray and sold it because it was jarring. The 30th set hasn't bothered me so much because while it's still filtered it's not zoomed in which enhanced the problem. I in the middle on this, I can see why people don't like it and why some do. It's not the Level sets but the 4:3 does help mask some of the problems a little. Like, if I watch these on my laptop on my lap I notice the DNR big time, but even about a foot away or 6ft on my TV they look more than fine, atleast to me.VanceRefrigeration wrote: ↑Sat Sep 12, 2020 2:02 pmThe cropping is fine for this set besides the first episode or so. The colors aren't great. But what really makes it unwatchable is the filter they used which makes the lines smeary and gives everything an artificially razor sharp look. Anyone who hated that look on the Season Blu-rays instantly saw that something was very wrong when the first trailer for this dropped.

I get that the source material isn't always sharp, but the lines shouldn't be turning into fat smeary blobs. Some people don't notice this or even mind it, but I can't stand watching anything with this sort of filter. People talk about "DNR" and "cropping" a lot, but this right here is the real deal breaker for me.
A good example is the clouds they were very distracting on the 16:9 because all they did was dance (grain motion) on the 4:3 it's still there but very very small because the issue wasnt blown up.
