This boxset's cover boasts that it's 'DIGITALLY RESTORED '. That's a LIE, it is a same flawed transfer as from older release of this series with some of the noise digitally removed. The end result is that it looks a bit smoother but less detailed that older disks; overall it's a wash as to which one looks better. Still, this one's cheap but i for one would gladly pay MUCH more to see these fantastic series in better quality. It looks like it WAS shot on film; how hard is it to make a new HD transfer for a popular series?!
FINALLY - a REAL restoration. It's not in HD, but MUCH better than this. Better colors, better contrast, better clarity, minimal mpeg compression artifacts, more stable picture. Oh, and no unskippable "piracy is stealing" ad. See ASIN: B005C3HBHU .
