I would so love to have this but, wow. It's a little too rich for my blood right now. Amazing series, though. Nothing like it before or since.

I hope this blu-ray will restore the "My Name Is" song from one of the two season 3 episodes. I hope Paul Reubens saved the negative for that scene.

 

I also hope it will have the season 2 opening in the season 4 episodes again.

If you have it on SD, upscaled to 1080, why would you want it on BD??? Is this something that would warrant an upgrade...I think not!

That's just MHO!!!

That's not too unusual for kids shows. They were able to get away with repeats far more often with the older Saturday Morning time slots.


"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

Go to http://peewee.com/ and to "Press". No change in aspect ratio from the preview clips.

I loved how DUKES looks, and would love to see all television shows look that great.

Gary,

 

Keep the preorder just for price lock.  Something tells me that Amazon made some kind

of error.

 

You can cancel that order a few days before actual release if it actually gets changed.

I want it, but I might hold off and see if it hits a lightning deal over the holiday. I've waited this long to purchase, I can wait a little longer.
