Other Bonds still have technical problems - especially GE - but AVTAK is inexcusably bad.
Have watched AVTAK several times (guilty pleasure of mine), on TV, BD, and DVD (don't think I've ever seen it on VHS) but not recently. Just to clarify, is everyone upset because the jump-cut IS or IS NOT there? If it's always been there and is also on the BD, why has it been shafted? Not trolling, just legitimately curious.
