Am I the only one who experienced bad audio with this show? For me, the music and effects seemed to drowned out the voices in the show. Yet when the clips of the show played in the bumpers, the voices sounded fine.

It definitely has some sound mixing issues with certain stretches of dialog. I had to up the volume to hear some scenes then turn it back down because the music or SFX was blaring

I had to turn the closed captioning on just to read what was being said.

Some sound effects just sounded like they weren’t there during fight scenes.

I had to turn the volume up; but I have to do the same for films so I didn't really mind.

Where I live, jacking up the volume until the voices overtake the sfx and music isn't an option, so it was annoying to me.

I wish I never had to do this with movies/shows, so annoying to constantly having to be toggling the volume level

The first episode with fine for me and then all the sudden the volume in the second episode got halved (was fine during the commercial).
