I've noticed it either sounds like the microphone is 30 miles away from where the scene is being filmed or there is other problem. Usually the effects are either overly loud or extremely quiet and almost always the actors are almost impossible to hear.
Is there a different standard for television audio there than we use here that distorts the audio in some way? The only other thing I can think of is they must buy 30 dollar microphones for filming.
Here is the perfect example of how I imagine the audio in European movies.
you really need to change your sig.
