    Ehh.... the Shameless actually looks better in some scenes, like these:

    It doesn't look like either is really a definitive release, so it's just a matter of time before a better version comes along. I'll stick with my UK disc for now.

    How bad is the distortions in the last minutes on the Shameless release?
    Been thinking if I should upgrade from my Swedish DVD, but if it´s REALLY bad, then I might just as well keep the DVD and wait for another release.

    Was there ever a consensus on the "best" release?

    What about Bird with the Crystal Plummage? What's the top Blu release for that one?

    No official announcement has been made, but there has been talk on Blu-ray.com that Arrow will be releasing Bird with the Crystal Plumage in the near future. There is definitely room for improvement with the Blue Underground release.

    Not really. I've had the UK Blu-ray of Four Flies on Grey Velvet that was released by Shameless for about 5 years now, and I'm still waiting on a better release to show up.

    There's a German Blu-ray, but it lacks English subtitles for the Italian track. There's a comparison on Caps-a-holic, and the contrast and colors are better on the German release, plus it has a better encode with a higher bit-rate. The lack of English subs kills it for me though.

    Italian and French Blu-rays also exist, but again both lack English subtitles.
