What do you think about this idea as a Blu-Ray box set? To CBS Home Entertainment: I would like to suggest a Complete Series set of The Andy Griffith Show, with all episodes unedited and in high definition (and with the laugh tracks intact), all the episodes of Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C., unedited and in high definition and with sponsor spots, Mayberry, R.F.D., (from Warner Brothers) unedited and in high definition, sponsor spots, additional commercials with the cast, cast interviews, documentaries, Return to Mayberry, the TV specials (The Andy Griffith Show 25th Anniversary Special, 1985, Thirty Years of Andy, 1990, The Andy Griffith Show Reunion, 1993, The Andy Griffith Show Reunion: Back to Mayberry, 2003), It's Garry Shandling's Show: The Day Howard Moved In, photo galleries, Matlock's homages to The Andy Griffith Show (including clips of co-stars of The Andy Griffith Show appearing on Matlock), Don Knotts's appearance on Step by Step (as "Deputy Fief"), Barney's commercial with the "Crash Test Dummies", Andy Griffith's appearance in the October 25, 1963 Bob Hope special, audio/text commentaries, George Lindsey's appearances on Hee Haw, production notes, promos (CBS, syndication, TBS, TV Land), The Andy Griffith, Don Knotts, and Jim Nabors Special, Hal Smith's Mothers Against Drunk Driving commercials, Alan Jackson's "Don't Rock the Jukebox" music video with Hal Smith as Otis, the pilot episode from The Danny Thomas Show (27 minutes), Jim Nabors' appearances as Gomer Pyle on The Lucy Show and Hi Honey, I'm Home, Goober and the Trucker's Paradise (1978), The New Andy Griffith Show's pilot episode, "The Joey Bishop Show: Joey's Hideaway Cabin" with Don Knotts as Barney, CBS fall preview specials with the cast, Inside TV Land: The Andy Griffith Show, The E! True Hollywood Story: Andy of Mayberry, the trailer for "Angel in My Pocket", the Biographies of Andy Griffith, Don Knotts, and Ron Howard, Emmy Award/TV Land Award footage, and more. Some additional material for this set: The Don Knotts Show (1967), The Don Knotts Nice, Clean, Decent, Wholesome Hour (1967), The Don Knotts Special Variety Special (1967), Mr. Moe's (1988) with Don Knotts and Hal Smith, the Saturday Night Live parody of The Andy Griffith Show with Ron Howard, and a "Mayberry Jukebox" with albums released by the cast and the show's soundtrack album. Home movies from The Andy Griffith Show should be included. Scripts from the show (plus Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. and Mayberry, R.F.D., and the script for Return to Mayberry) should be included as .PDFs. English subtitles should be included. A collector's book should be included. Jim Clark, Allan Newsome, and Ken Beck should be executive producers of the set. A special tribute to Andy Griffith should be included in the set.

Personally, I would rather see TAGS on BD more than Dick Van Dyke. TAGS is filmed one-camera movie style and they actually go outside sometimes as well, which lends itself more to hi def.

I believe the era of putting sitcoms on tape, instead of film, began with ALL IN THE FAMILY in early 1971. Not only was THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW on film, it had exceptionally good cinematography (which was possible because it was filmed like a movie, with one camera, and not done with three cameras before a live audience.) It probably would be spectacular on Blu-Ray.

i was thinking, at least in general, that the older the show, the worse one could expect the video quality to be ?
