    The trailer runs at 24fps And it's personal, i just can't stand the PAL speed-up. First of all, if it's not pitch corrected, the actor's voices sound ugly and strange. Finally, an exemple: i have a movie in both PAL & NTSC, the PAL version is 01 H 42 mn and the NTSC version is 02 H 07 mn which actually makes a huge difference!

    Sorry about that. I hadn't figured out the link in your post. My bad!

    Well, I haven't noticed any difference in pitch, so I don't think there's any speed-up in the episodes. Or I may not be able to hear it. The thing to do would be recording a bit from the original US release, and then paste on the same bit from the current Fabulous release, but right now I don't have the time.

    Just me who thinks Bryan Cranston really doesn't look himself in this promo picture for Season Two? http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...L._AA1461_.jpg

    Was the trailer posted online? There aren't any PAL/NTSC restrictions for online videos, so you could post a video with 10fps if you really wanted to, whilst DVD has certain restrictions; far as I know, it would be 'illegal' (in DVD terms) to have a video stream at PAL resolution, but at 24fps frame rate.

    If these ever make it to Blu-Ray, you'd be guaranteed they'd run at the correct speed. I guess the distributor just doesn't have the money to do it at the moment.

    Please explain the notion of 'self'. Especially in the case of Bryan, it's a rather elusive concept

    As far as I know, only S7 promos were photoshopped.

    OK, I did find some time today, and these are audio clips I recorded from the 2002 US (NTSC) release and the 2012 UK (PAL) release. I thought I'd choose the Shame cold open trumpet intro. As you can hear, there's no pitch difference whatsoever. Discussion closed, hopefully?

    Ok, I know someone who's copy has arrived, and I convinced them to send me a short clip from the DVD. The audio pitch is indeed correct, as you confirm, but that's because the set is in NTSC. So they are NOT in PAL at all. I can confirm that they are 720x480 resolution, and 29.970fps, as I have run them through Virtualdub, and checked media properties on VLC Player, and both confirm it.

    Fair point, but I don't know, he just looks completely different from what his character Hal usually looks like. Looks like a completely different person to me in that picture!
