The Bionic shows are in the process of getting an R2 re-release based on the new masters. I'm given to understand that these will be NTSC sets: no PAL conversion. I sincerely hope that the opportunity is taken to fix some of these issues with the masters that have been much discussed here and elsewhere. While I appreciate Universal issuing a fix for "Deadly Ringer," this was only the most egregious of quite a few audio errors on The Bionic Woman as released on DVD in R1. Just as an example, the second season premiere, "The Return of Bigfoot, Part II," has severely muffled music and SFX for much of its runtime. It's great to have the original version of the episode, which for syndication was moved to The Six Million Dollar Man and retitled accordingly, just the same the audio from that version never had these problems. Any improvements along these lines would produce sales beyond the region for completists who feel that the R1 release was needlessly flawed. I know from my conversations with other fans that I speak for more than just myself in this regard. I wish that the R1 releases were good enough for me to declare victory and move on. The Bionic Woman has received a fantastic video transfer, much superior to the transfer of Six, where clearly the old elements were just subjected to some cleanup (with a couple of exceptions). The audio of Six is without the problems which plague the spinoff however, and of the two, clearly audio problems are the easiest to fix. Sure would be nice if a definitive release would make an appearance. Even partial improvement would make this new release an upgrade.
