What makes you even think there is a problem? You reply as though you think there is a problem when nothing, absolutely nothing, suggests anything approaching a problem. Please don't invent problemsMost of my experiences I have with discs manufactured at BMG's plant in Guetersloh, North Rhine-Westphalia Germany, are audio cd discs. It turned out this particular BMG plant had the best consistent quality control out of the other european based disc manufacturing plants for audio cd discs.
For quite a few years, I've been skeptical of audio cd discs manufactured at just about every remaining american, british, western europe, and several other austrian/german discs manufacturing facilities (such the optimal media plant with mould sid code IFPI 97** which were repeatedly pumping out defective Beatles cd/dvd/bluray sets over the past few years).
I can't say for sure whether the ViacomCBS / Paramount american released dvd / bluray discs manufactured in Guetersloh, Germany (with mould sid code IFPI 07**) will also have better quality control, than their previous dvd/bluray discs manufactured at Technicolor's giant plant in Guadalajara, Mexico (with mould sid code IFPI KK**).

I think you are confusing McCloud with McMillan & Wife as VEI have never put out any DVD releases of McCloud.VEI still has their mitts on McCLoud. Damn!
Actually, the Blu will be worse since it's a crop and chop job to make it fake widescreen.The 1990s Robocop tv series is a tempting purchase.
Though thinking about it more, it was produced during the mid-1990s which likely means it was edited in postproduction on digital videotape and locked in at 480i ntsc resolution at 4:3 ratio fullscreen. So unless they went back to the original film reels and re-scanned everything at hd/4K (or higher) resolution while editing all the episodes again, then this upcoming dvd/bluray likely won't be much different than the 2010 dvd version released by Alliance (in really atrocious packaging which warped the discs).
