Question About DVD Subtitles

Post by Melissa100 » Nov 10th, '09, 23:31

Usually when I fall in love with a show, I rush out and buy the dvds but I'm finding that the fansubs are way better than the professionally done subtitles. Kudos to any subbers who see this, y'all have really spoiled me. What I'm wondering is, are the subtitles on movie dvds just as bad as on tv show dvds?

Only if they're bootlegs.

Most (all?) TV show DVDs are not subbed by the original company (Fuji, Asahi, etc.), so all the subs come from the fansubbers, whereas many (not all) movies are legitimately subbed by the movie studio... If the subs in a movie are really bad, then I'd bet it was a bootleg and not something done by a studio... At least that's my observation. :)
