What a let down, 14 Aug. 2007
I think this is a pitifully poor product and a real disappointment for the following reasons:
1. The ridiculous 'encore' logo, which is entirely pointless and unnecessary. It's Champion the Wonder Horse for Pete's sake, not the Transformers movie! The target demographic for this product would have no interest in pirating it. And those that do shell out their honest cash end up with an inferior product artificially spoilt by this STUPID logo.
2. The image quality is dreadful. I would have considered improving it by running each episode through a stack of filters. But there is no point, because the end result will still be hampered by that incongruous damn logo. Let me make it clear that the reason for the poor quality is not because the source material is old, but because no attempt appears to have been made to clean it up. It looks like it was transferred to video by pointing a cheap camcorder at a cine projector screen. The image is slightly off-centre and blurred, the gamma and contrast is poor, the chroma has not been removed leaving a fuzzy colour haze, I could go on but you get idea.
I won't be watching it because it's too irritating. Not impressed.
