I thought season one of LIS looked great on dvd .
OK, something's bugging me. I bought LOST IN SPACE - all three seasons - on DVD and am of the opinion that for the most part, they look like garbage. All right, that's a bit of hyperbole, but really, seasons 2 and 3 in particular, looked far worse than any other major studio release on DVD. The color were bleeding all over the place, the image is fuzzy, with horizontal lines jiggling through the picture all the time. And it seemed that season 3 is even worse than season 2.
I'm sure that elsewhere on the HTF, the discussion on these horrible transfers has been played out many times. I know I've participated in them. In those discussions, it's generally agreed that season 1 DVDs looked better. And I've often thought that - until digging out the occasion S1 episode and being appalled that it too has those horizontal lines and the image is not all that sharp. I really think they're all just as bad - but the color makes them look worse.
OK, so I see the statement above, and maybe it's worth disagreeing with - maybe not. The Blu-rays are coming - that's what this thread is about - and all will be fixed - we hope. But I keep coming back to this idea that really ANYTHING about the video for LOST IN SPACE on DVD is quite substandard, and nothing like the crisp episodes of LAND OF THE GIANTS, TIME TUNNEL, and VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA. So I have to wonder about statements that say that season 1 looked great or that the rest of the series looks great.
Yes, there are reviews all over Amazon.com ( http://www.amazon.co...complete series). Go on, take a look. There are 50 Five Star reviews and very few reviews giving fewer than five stars. So are all of the reviewers on Amazon blind? Crazy? Shills for FOX?
Or is there some sort of stealth remaster that happened while we weren't looking? My LOST IN SPACE DVDs sit on the shelf and are never voluntarily watched. I'll pull one out if a subject arises that needs my participation, but I do not watch them for entertainment. They look horrible on my 60" television. Even the Blu-ray player up-scaling doesn't help.
Just trying to figure out what's going on.
As for the Blu-rays - they'll have to be nicely priced before I bite. LOST IN SPACE once had my teenaged self thrilled with its adventures. As an adult - not so much. I find the show to be silly these days. But that's just me. I certainly hope that all of you who really love the show get a great remaster and that it's everything it should be. I know how I feel about TIME TUNNEL - and how a lot of folks dismiss THAT show as silly.
