Good series so far, I absolutely love it! But does anyone else notice the extreme amount of compression artifacts and shimmering pixels during the darker scenes in this show? It was really apparent and annoying during this past weeks episode during the car ride scene at minute mark :46 or so, but throughout both episodes it’s been noticeable. The outdoor market scene with the FBI agent telling the girl to nod if his accusations were correct that occurred around the same time was also pretty bad. I record this (and most of my other shows) on both the Time Warner and DirecTV DVRs. I watched The Americans on TW, but rewatched certain scenes on DirecTV and it was just as bad if not worse as far as the compression artifacts go. I don’t recall American Horror Story: Asylum being this bad.
