The Same Washed Out Colors,
By A Customer
This review is from: Pride And Prejudice : Complete BBC Series - 10th Anniversary Edition  [DVD]  (DVD)
I'm very disappointed with the video quality of this Anniversary Edition because the colors look washed out just like the previous releases (in the UK and the USA) of the widescreen edition. A reviewer's comment on the USA widescreen edition posted at Amazon.com can also be fittingly applied to this Anniversary Edition: "... the colors are not just washed out, the digital remastering has changed the color tone of the film as if someone used a Photoshop/Premier digital filter without knowing what they were doing. The VHS and original [DVD, fullscreen edition] not only had rich color saturation, but also had a warm tone that felt 'right' with the period film. The [widescreen edition] DVD is not only washed out, but has a strong blue-white tone to it that gives a cold modern feel to the scene..."
There's no need to replace your previous DVD with this Anniversary Edition.

Oh dear! Thanks for the warning. The problem for buyers is that they are in the dark when buying online. You can look at a book but you can't see inside a DVD or VHS tape for that matter. Reviews are a great help.

I absolutely agree with this reviewer. The colour on this DVD is terrible, washed-out, peely-wally, insipid. However, my god, the story is SO good I just overlook the (only!) flaw and watch it frequently anyway. However, if another edition is ever released with the colour properly restored, I will certainly buy it and ditch this one.
