I'm a big fan of Mr Bean and can recommend it as top notch family entertainment. However, I bought this on it's own out of curiousity about the remastering. Having compared it to previous releases, I can say that there is an improvement, albeit only slight. I can't put my finger on it but the picture and sound both seem less 'noisy'. I don't think I shall be replacing my old dvds but I strongly recommend buying these versions if you don't have the episodes already.
