  1. #1 The Politician - the grade? 
    I'm pretty sure i saw this was shot on Red.

    I'm curious - i'm watched a bit of this via a normal netflix account on a normal HD OLED display. All SDR.

    The grade looks, well, just wrong. I can't believe it went through QA and it made me wonder if i'm getting an HDR clipped on SDR - it's mostly to do with clipping, highlights and general saturation. Either that or they had no lights for inside to balance exposure but it looks like a properly funded show.

    Is it just me?

    (And i'm talking image, not content...)

    cheers

    If highlights are clipped, this is exactly the same as happened to Annihilation which looked like crap for a few weeks until colorists united and gave a note to Netflix to fix it.

    It could be a look i suppose. 80s video? I mean the interiors have massive blown windows and ugly colour clipping. This could be a factor of the saturation dial turned up to 11 but even so the highlights could have been rolled off - i've never seen such ugly clips than this. Even on skin.

    Hence me wondering if there is a streaming/QC issue going on.
