I just read a users review for CAPTAIN BLOOD - they liked the show, but they made a comment that sometimes the sound effects drown out the voices. That is true! In the battle scenes, there is 'throw away" dialog; meaning dialog that is not terribly important (usually orders being shouted) that I intentionally wanted to be difficult to hear so as to illustrate the intensity of the battle - especially with 40 17th century 12 pounders booming from a ships deck. Some of you have have listened to the show may have had the same thoughts, so I thought I would clarify that it wasn't an editing error, but intentional. Fun show!
