    It seems like every second, a frame or so is skipped causing a VERY visble "jump" in the picture. VERY noticeable and ANNOYING during pans or Tracking shots!
    I guess if they shave 1/30 of the time off the film, it's easier to squeeze it into a 2 hr. slot, but MAN! It's irritating!!!

    Sounds like they might be using a "Time Machine", although I'd think they would want it to be less obvious. A station got in trouble for using one during an NFL game.
