(2) -- are you looking for the original or the remake? You can import the original. You can't watch the special features, but the main feature is 24p (slowed down, not standards-converted).
I'm looking to upgrade the remake.
The West Wing
Sex and the City
1. The Brady Bunch-Remastered to get rid of the nasty DNR of the dvds, and to fix the slight edits to a few episodes.
2. I Love Lucy- Give the viewers the option to watch the show as originally aired as the later dvd sets did.
3. Batman- Would look beautiful
1. Roots- The original 8 parts as broadcast
2. Jesus of Nazareth
3. Rich Man, Poor Man (Books I and II)
What About Brian?
(Don't hate me because of my eclectic tastes! )
Good call on all of these. I was going to bring this up with "Lucy".
I also second ChrisCook's call for Road to Avonlea on Blu-Ray. The DVDs were of awful quality. Supposedly Sullivan Entertainment remastered the show in 16x9 to improve picture quality and is selling those versions on DVD, and I'm not re-buying unless I hear about upgrades in picture quality, reinstatement of the opening credits, or whether the new aspect ratio reveals any additional picture info on any sides or is just a tilt-and-scan job like "Kung Fu".
i can only think The X-Files. was going to list BSG but i already own that .
What is BSG ? Saw it mentioned before, but this time I ask...
I just completed my X-Files DVD collection with S7 yesterday LOL. I have a hard time imagining the first several seasons would look good on BD. Or maybe even the rest too. Not that the later season DVDs are really poor or anything, it's just I'm unsure about taped stuff from that era. If I saw some other SDTV/tape era material looking good in proper HD on BD (i.e. not just upscaled DVD on BD) I might have to change my "wanted TV BD" list.
^ Thanks. I figured it might be something like that, but couldn't figure the "S" part. I'm just not "in" enough. It is a series often recommended to me, but I've never even seen one minute of it.
All I need is The Wire complete set on blu-ray, and then I'll be very happy.
Twilight Zone (1959)
Batman the Animated Series after a good cleaning should look as good as Snow White
Batman ??? if it ever happens
re: XF PQ, if a 1960s TV series like Twilight Zone and Star Trek TOS can be released on BD, i imagine it wouldn't be a problem for XF, the key is remastering AND restoring without losing the grain. i wouldn't mind if they redid the FX for the entire XF series, it was pretty "babylon5-like" CG . but then again it was done around the same era...
though S8-S9's FX were pretty incredible. it's also amazing how much of the series was practical =).
wow i can't wait to enjoy XF in 1080p, DTS-HD MA 5.1 =D... can't wait =).
BTW Mark Snow will be releasing a 4CD Boxset of XF soundtrack next spring . save up! =0.
Would also love to get The New Avengers, Return of The Saint as well. In addition to the Star Trek spin off series. Twilight Zone is of great interest to me as well.
Queer as Folk - Gale Harold. . .high-def. . .
24 Seasons 1-6
Seinfeld Even altered from their original 1.33:1 on TBS and FOX HD they look splendid, of course I'd want them kept at 1.33:1.
Friends The DVD sets look horrendous, they could use a make-over.
I guess this doesn't really belong here, but is somewhat relevant:
Do you think that most of the TV shows recorded on tape before the HD era will look good on BD? I just don't see it. I know some have lousy DVDs, not much work put into them, but I am dubious that the sources in general can be resurrected for HD. I don't know about the tech aspect, so don't shoot me if I'm wrong, I'm largely judging by the existing DVDs as to what they had to work with and what they can do. But maybe many don't care about that, just want the medium to be BD for convenience and space reasons. I am not keen about upscaled DVD being placed on BD and calling it "HD"...this is good for some people, but bad for many others too.
Now TV recorded on film can be a different matter: see late 60s "The Prisoner" for a mind-blowing BD example, and a much lesser example is Star Trek. Who knew what we were watching on TV 40+ years ago was really so fabulous?
