I received Boardwalk Empire as a 2011 Christmas gift. I could watch the discs, but my new Sony BluRay would freeze up if I tried to fast forward to the next scene, or try to use the enhanced features. (My BluRay actually froze up for so long, that I had to unplug it just to turn it off. None of the buttons on my BluRay remote got a response from the BluRay.) As long as I watch the disc with all scenes in sequence I could get through it. Of course, this did not make me happy as I was missing some of the features on the discs. I had been updating my BluRay every 3 months or so, trying the Boardwalk Empire discs afterwards again only to encounter the same problems. Then just yesterday, (Aug. 23) after another software update on my BluRay-magically everything worked on the discs, fast forward, scene advance, and the enhanced features. Even the part where the disc says to push the red button, that worked! So Sony finally figured out what was wrong and corrected it.
