I haven't yet purchased Shout's TFs videos, so can you elaborate?
will explain (Page 14 adds some further criticisms to those mentioned on the first few pages).
Or, if you'd rather, I could compile all the important criticisms in that thread into one post here (so that you don't have to read the whole thread).

The only thing the Shout! Factory DVD sets have over the UK Metrodome and the Australian Madman sets are that the Shout! ones fixed some spelling/grammar errors in those other sets' subtitle tracks (yes, the Shout! DVDs recycled the subs of those DVD sets for their own DVD sets) and that the fact that they're being sold domestically in the U.S. means that Amercian fans don't have to pay import prices for either a UK DVD set or an Australian DVD set.
But the bad still FAR outweighs the good, leaving the Metrodome and Madman sets still being the superior releases.

This is Sabrblade we're talking about. His ability to store trivial information about TV shows is downright superhuman.
