I hope this is not an error on my side, but it looks like Paramount messed up the encoding. The video stream seems to be interlaced, but closer inspection reveals it's in fact shifted by 1 field. It's necessary to take the bottom field from one frame, and the top field from the next frame to get one progressive frame. Here's an example to illustrate this issue:

Frame 38502Frame 3850338502 (top)38503 (top)38502 (bottom)38503 (bottom)38502 (bottom) + 38503 (top)

(According to information I found on the Internet, the reason for this issue is incorrectly set progressive flag of the video stream.)

*difference between channels is -79.75 dB (0.01 %),
resp. -79.40 dB (0.01 %)
**with optional English & German subtitles
