It is truly sad to witness and speaks volumes for the state of the studio, but Universal Home Video is once again making headlines of the bad sort. After releasing bad DVDs of Monty Python’s The Meaning Of Life into the market earlier this year, the studio is currently sending out replacement discs to its customers. But before you get too excited, here’s the problem. These replacement discs are just as defective as the original ones, if not even worse-looking than before.
At this point I am at a loss for words really. Universal really needs to get their act together. Their reputation is entirely down the gurgler and the studio does not seem to have any ambition to work on improving it. Selling people defective DVDs is bad to begin with, but having the audacity to actually replace these discs with another batch of defective ones is beyond comprehension. Once again, we can only recommend to stay away from Universal Home Video releases as good as you can, until the studio actually proves to the public that they are worth your hard-earned money.
