Those of you who still rent DVDs from time to time, have you noticed if there is a scratch on the DVD, it follows that there is a high likelihood of the skip or freeze occurring at either the climax or during a scene where something important to the plot is revealed? This recently happened to me two nights in a row. After repeated incidents over the years, I think I have seen a real pattern. I have to wonder it’s a feature of DVDs created by devious designers.
