Over 40 years later, and there's nothing really new that can be added about the content of the series. You either like it or dismiss it. Frothy harmless fun... Tony Curtis stil trying to prove his agility in middle age, and the lead cars and fashions not really looking out of place in today's society... However, if you're wondering about the HD transfers than this box set won't let you down. There's no grain and the colours are so bright and vivid that sometimes it's like looking through a window back into the early seventies. In fact because of this, the only thing which lets the show down is the scenes involving back protection. A pity some of these couldn't be colour corrected and revamped? On the whole though, the remasters are 99 percent. I did spot a hair in the lens in one scene and a blemish in another. Somehow curiously missed - maybe because they were on the edges on the screen? But this is sheer nit-picking, since you only notice these more due to the rest of the episodes looking so lush and re-polished. Extras are also great and packaged with the care and attention we've come to expect of Network. All we need now of course is for Network to speed up the blu-ray releases of other old ITC series? Randall and Hopkirk next please anyone?
