a remastering triumph - looks and sound superb.
on 4 June 2016
Yet again, Network's remastering of 'The Professionals' is a complete triumph, setting the bench mark for how vintage television should be presented. They've gone back to the original film negatives, remastered the sound and picture from scratch - it looks immaculate, miles better than any previous DVD or VHS release, and indeed considerably better than it ever did on its initial ITV broadcasts (never mind current digital channels).
As to the episodes themselves ... well, I don't think it would be a controversial view to say some of the season 4 episodes are a bit weak compared to the earlier seasons. The acting and action is as sharp as ever, but some of the stories are a bit rehashed and tired. However, happily or ironically, the last season also contains what are surely some of the show's very best episodes (Operation Susie, Cry Wolf, Lawson's Last Stand...?), so I mustn't grumble.
I just hope that having now completed their superb blu-ray sets of the Professionals, Network bring us some more classic shows in the same fashion - The Sweeney, perhaps..? Hammer House of Horror? Minder?
