The whole thing makes you think it's a bit of a rush job, like no attention was lavished on it. It's a pity, really.

Screw it. I bought it anyway. It probably wont live up to its fair potential (how did one disc make sense to anyone???), but how the hell else am I gonna finally see it (first person who suggests streaming it gets backhanded)?

If you could grab a few random, non-spoilery shots, that would be great.

Honestly, the compression issues maybe minimal on the disc. I've been watching the Mr. Mercedes Season 1 Blu-ray also from Sony/Universal Australia and the discs also have 4+ hours on them, but the video/audio quality is excellent. Video on Mr. Mercedes is 4.0/5.0 at worst. So if this is handle just as well as Mr. Mercedes, Cobra Kai is going to look and sound great on this release.

Yeah, the only place where the compression seemed fragile on what Ive seen of the MR. MERCEDES Blu was is the fog in the opening scenes of the pilot. Assuming COBRA KAI avoids scenes in fog or mist, well probably be all right.

It seems awfully quiet here...has no-one on here got this and willing to give their opinions on it? I take it there are no extras on it? That's a shame as the bootleg ones seem to have more.

I just ordered from eBay seller “elite-entertainment”. My copy won’t be here till Sept 11th though. I also “purchased” on VUDU. I’m LOVING this so far! Also asked the seller if they could ship out a BLU-RAY copy of Muriel’s Wedding, since it’s not available in the states. We’ll see what happens.

According to my tracking, mine should be here no later than Sept. 6, so it may be quiet around here for a while yet, at least as far as us Americans are concerned.

Mine is due this week. I don't have a blu-ray drive in my computer any more for taking screen caps, but I will watch and give the general impression.

Mine could arrive anytime between August 26th and Sept. 11th. Looking forward to hearing other's impressions of it, though.

I'm still waiting on my free Blu-ray copy to arrive. The Universal Sony rep that I've been speaking with about this release, said that it was sent on Friday, so hopefully it's not too much longer.

I watched the first 10 minutes of the first episode. The quality and sound seemed fine to me considering the whole series is packed onto the one disc. I'm not a picture and sound aficionado, so I'd wait on a response from someone with more knowledge than I if you are really concerned about the quality.

Hope this helps.

I received my copy yesterday. I just finished watching the first episode. I'm not going to lie, there are some compression issues, there was banding in various scenes. However, I've seen a lot worse, and wouldn't say it's offensive to the point of recommending that people avoid this release.

Fair enough. Mildly disappointed, but sounds about as good as we could've expected.

It prob dosen't help that Sony Australia encoded this and they probably dont have the skills/tools to do as good of a job compared to Sonys US and international releases. 1 disc prob didn't help either
