Decline - S1-E6

Audio problem: Almost all the newsroom links in this episode were redubbed, and at times the overdub falls entirely out of sync. When Austin Tasseltine begins speaking one of his lines before Morris has finished, the latter's "Belt up, will you?" is an ad-libbed response to this mistiming.

Hank Gets Dusted - S11-E5

Audio problem: As the ZZ top members are trying to convince Bobby about staying in school, there is a distinct microphone error after Frank speaks. When he says "and the presidents", you can hear it quite distinctively. It is as if he spoke too close to the microphone at the end of his sentence.

I Worship His Shadow - S1-E1

Audio problem: As the Fore Shadow is charging up its blast each time, when first shown it makes a high pitched shrieking sound as the energy spreads across The Web of cables fanning out from it. However as the battle continues, this sound effect becomes very inconsistent when it plays in correlation to the energy blasts charging up on the ship. (00:02:15 - 00:03:20)
