Notes: 
Another thing I'd like to point out is that the source used for both the French DVD & the TV broadcast seems to originate from at least two quality-wise different elements. The problem is that most of the time the transitions between them appear in the middle of the shot, and are strikingly obvious, as you can see in the following examples (note also the duplicate frame 87339 in the French release):

Example 1Example 2Example 3
9337 / 9338 | 74165 / 74166 | 87338 / 87339 / 87340
9303 / 9304 | 74095 / 74096 | 87235 / 87236 / 87237
