SDH & closed-caption review
[o= non-existent; 1 = poor; 2 = fair;
3 = good, 4 = excellent].
~
The DVD has closed-captions; no subtitles are available.
~ CC rating: 3 = Good. Sharp, lower-case white letters superimposed over a black background. Would have been a 4 – Excellent rating had they made them upper-case, but they are good.
