Nice Catch, Nick!
I’ve bought a Season Pass on iTunes for The Legend of Korra Book 2 so I can rewatch a few scenes right before the podcast and/or drag through the episode in case I need visual reference while we’re talking.
My girlfriend - also a Korra fan - was living with me for a few days before she moved to Los Angeles (she moved, not me, I am totally the Mako in this situation for better or worse). I had to wake up and podcast for ‘Civil Wars, Part 1” the day she flew out, so that morning I downloaded the episode as soon as possible so we could watch our last episode together for awhile (or at least until she learns Airbending and can come back to Republic City).
As we were watching it, I realized the audio sync was off and the dialogue was somewhere between a half and full second delayed to the animation. It was GROSS, but we watched it, because it was Korra and it was the last Korra we’d be in the same state for.
Last week I scrolled through it again just to see if it was an issue with my iPad, but - nope - total sync error.
I wrote iTunes letting them know, but also allowing that it might have been a user-side error.
So imagine my surprise when I woke up to this e-mail from iTunes this morning:

Nice catch, me! Or, iTunes overall. But I’m totally giving credit to myself for seeing something and saying something.
