Awful sound editing made it impossible to watch
9 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

The history of the police as we know it today is a subject I'm very interested in so when Hulu added this show to their line-up I was immediately intrigued. I watched the first episode with my husband. We agreed that the sound editing is atrocious. The background sounds are far too forward in the mix and overwhelm the dialogue. There is nothing wrong with the actors' performance. It is not a case of mumbling performances. It is most definitely a case of very poor quality sound mixing. I tried to watch with closed captions but I couldn't manage to activate this function in Hulu in spite of changing my settings to allow for it. I gave up when I realized the second episode was not going to be any different. It's too bad, although now that I see this is a show from 6 years ago and it only enjoyed one season, it's just as well.
